In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

I’ll go with a book and a treat.
The Eagles Are Back by Jean Craighead George, paintings by Wendell Minor – fantastic picture book with a hopeful message about human’s impact on the environment… I loved reading The Wolves are Back, special… This one, just beautiful as well. You follow a little boy as he receives a huge responsibility of helping a pair of bald eagles decide to adopt an egg and provide them with food when needed. Really liked how the story presented how and why humans impacted yet another species with choices made. Additionally, the perseverance to bring back bald eagles and results of that effort were packed with hope. Jean Craighead George’s books always rise to the top- fiction, non-fiction, picture books… I never stopped learning. Thinking back on Jean Craighead George’s impact on children’s literature… decided to include a few videos below. Never will stop appreciating her books.
Goodreads Summary: “The American bald eagle, the national symbol of the United States, was once dangerously near to extinction. With the help of dedicated volunteers and decades of hard work, the eagle population made a dramatic comeback. This moving picture book tells the story of one boy who helped in the hatching of an eaglet. Featuring vividly detailed paintings from landscape artist Wendell Minor, Jean Craighead George’s inspiring text will motivate readers of all ages to care for the environment and its many creatures.”
Mmm- treat is a weak treat for me, I just love these biscuits (cookies)…
