A falcon dives at 200 miles per hour to strike its prey. Skillful hunters, falcons live all over the world: on rocky cliffs, grassy prairies, and even city skyscrapers. Almost wiped out by the effects of the pesticide DDT, peregrine falcons have fought their way back from near extinction. Inside, you can read about a peregrine falcon named Scarlett who had a special nest box on a Baltimore skyscraper.

Satisfy students’ curiosity about how the world works. Descriptive illustrations are paired with a simple, informative text that’s just right for beginning readers, with interesting facts and concepts. Most books also include a hands-on activity.

Stage 2 books explore more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades and include hands-on activities that children can do themselves. Accelerated ReaderĀ® title.
