Esther the Eaglet longs to test out her wings and fly, but the wind is strong and she lands with a crash. Esther is lucky that people are there who know how to care for her. Her injured wing is x-rayed and she’s kept safe in a cage until it heals. Esther’s injury is not serious, so it only takes a few days before she’s ready to be released into the wild. Soon she’s reunited with her parents and back in the nest.
Esther’s story has a happy ending, and children will enjoy seeing her in the many photographs that fill this book, as they learn about animal rehabilitation. Kids who love animals will enjoy reading Esther the Eaglet.
