Horus the Peregrine Falcon and series of books
I was given a copy of this book by John Miles and absolutely loved it. If I’d had a book like this as a younger child, I would have been so happy with it. I do appreciate that not every child is as obsessed with nature and birds as I was, so I wanted to know what ordinary children would think of it.
So I took the book to every babysitting job that I had for 6 months, read the children the book and carefully watched their responses. What I saw was that all children loved the book. It didn’t matter if they were boys or girls, pre-readers or almost at secondary school. It was a big hit!
So based on my research I would thoroughly recommend this book and all the books in the series for any age child. There are very few storybooks about the wildlife around especially birds that do stand out, also they are very educational as well.< The books are by John Miles, quite a well-known birder and writer. The illustrations are by Barry Robson and are beautiful. I have done a video review with my 8-year-old niece speaking, so have a watch https://youtu.be/4GsBfui73u8
