In appreciation of this holiday, I recommend the following middle grade book written by a bird lover about a bird lover (but it’s about so much more than that!):
This middle grade novel is about a bird-loving boy named Axel, who, when a tornado damages his home and the eagles' nest he had been observing, must adjust to a lot of change. He his school is temporarily closed, he must move out of his house while his (normally) absent father completes repairs, and one of the eaglets has been injured and separated from his family. Told from Axel's perspective, Alison Green Myers, goes deep into the main character's mind as he tries to make sense of his world as he meets the challenges he faces. This heartwarming story is about birds, family, friends, change, secrets, understanding, and love. I highly recommend this book!
