for Wisdom, the Midway Albatross by Darcy Pattison and Kitty Harvill
Read Along or Enhanced eBook:
Wisdom, the Midway Albatross-the oldest bird in the world-hatched a new chick in 2011, and two months later, the Japanese tsunami struck. Surviving manmade and natural disasters for over 60 years, Wisdom has braved living wild, plastic pollution, longline fishing, lead poisoning, and the Japanese earthquake. In this "Biography in Text and Art," Harvill takes original photos as references to create accurate wildlife illustrations. These aren't generic birds, but one particular individual in detail. Pattison's careful research, vetted by scientists in the field, brings to life this this true story of an infant cub that must face a complicated world alone-and find a way to survive.
