To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I ordered this for my 7 year old. I was impressed with how the story tied in one of our favorite seaside villages with the ocean and wildlife conservation. Sweet characters and playful illustrations to match. Such a lovely read, especially if you're familiar with the East End of Long Island. The book encourages independent education - which I love, wildlife observation and protection, and habitat restoration. Bonus coloring pages are great, we loved that some of the details were missing so we could fill in the locations as we remember them! Perfect gift for any child who enjoys books with animals, or the sea. Perfect reading level for my second grader too.
I love it when stories are fun and also educational, and this book seamlessly merges the two. I usually prefer print books when it comes to children's stories but I really like how the pages in this ebook have a texture that makes them look like real pages. And the illustrations are beautiful! Both my 7 year old boy and 5 year old girl really enjoyed the story. They asked questions during the book which is always a great sign that their brain is being engaged!
This is a fun yet informative book about a curious little boy who learns about ospreys both from a boat captain as well as from viewing ospreys in a nearby nest over the course of several months. The book is nicely illustrated & there are bonus coloring pages at the end of the book. The book is simply charming!
Wonderful book for curious kids. My daughter immediately dove into the story joining Elliot in his adventure in the nature. Today as a first choice she took it with her to school to share with the class. My kids have endured months of days at home this year and this book helps them to reconnect with the wild life.
My children loved the book. It is a wonderfully told story with beautiful illustrations. It sparked an interest in seabirds and they want to go bird watching when we go to the beach next time. We would recommend it to young readers.
