Ages 9­–13

In this true story, Earley shares how Chicago resident Dacey Arashiba came home one day to discover a family of endangered peregrine falcons living on the patio of his 28th-storey apartment. Jammed with up-close and unique photos of the majestic birds, this book is the fascinating story of how people and wild animals learn to co-exist peacefully. In addition to a heartwarming tale, Earley offers tons of information on how the falcons live, where they nest, the egg hatching process, hunting, and much more. Don’t let the urban perspective fool you—this book will be equally fascinating for kids who live in the country.
