Gold Medal Winner Mom’s Choice Awards for Children’s Picture Book

“The compelling story and riveting photos provide an engaging overview of bird rescue and rehabilitation and the important role performed by wildlife hospitals. A Q&A section about peregrines in general and Maggie and her family is appended.”
—Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal

“A good addition to collections about birds and wildlife.”
—Robin Sofge, School Library Journal

“Too many authors are satisfied with a few cute pictures and a simple story, but Christie has obviously set out to educate anyone who reads this book, or has it read to them, and inspire them to look up and think about the difficult lives that our urban wildlife experience. A book that deserves to be in every grade school classroom and even grandma’s house!”
—Travis Rosenberry, Library Director, The Peregrine Fund | Research Library

The True Story of a Peregrine Falcon’s Rehabilitation

Maggie has just learned to fly when she crashes into the side of a building. She falls to the ground, alone and injured. Who will help her? As told with real photographs, this true story explains how wildlife hospitals rescue and treat injured animals. Their goal is to release the animals back into the wild. Sometimes, this isn’t possible but there can still be a happy ending. Maggie’s story, a Mom’s Choice Awards Gold Recipient, is just such a success!

Award-winning author Christie Gove-Berg began writing the Wildlife Rescue Stories after her mom and dad found an injured eaglet on their land.
