The Bald Eagle

In 1782, the bald eagle was chosen to be our national symbol.  As this remarkable bird is described, multiple reasons for the choice are revealed.  Simple paragraphs in large font are matched with excellent color photographs.  This book is small in size and uncluttered in presentation, yet contains an extraordinary amount of information and facts.  Historical events, physical traits, where and how the bald eagle symbol is used are all included.  A timeline, map, glossary, index and website conclude the book.  Engaging nonfiction for young readers.
