Fascinating Books for Learning about Bald Eagles and Birds of Prey

Birds of Prey are a fascinating topic for kids, whether they're excited about bald eagles or the hooting of owls.  Great books for homeschoolers.

My family loves spotting eagles around our home and learning about other birds of prey.  We regularly spot falcons, hawks, and eagles.  Did you know that the American Bald Eagle has it's own national day of celebration?  June 20th is a great day to focus on the great American symbol.  Scroll down for lots of great hands-on learning ideas.

DK Eyewitness Eagle and Birds of Prey- The Eyewitness encyclopedias have a reputation for beautiful pictures that make a great resource for anyone who wants to learn more about a subject.  This book discusses birds of prey in all sizes and types from around the world.  Also includes a look at their anatomy.

The Eagles are Back- From the author of other great stories of wildlife brought back from the edge of extinction (the Buffalo are Back and the Wolves are Back) comes a story about one boy who helps hatch an eaglet.  The story encourages kids to embrace conservation and environmentalism.

Eagle in the Sky- Active kids who have a bit of trouble sitting still will love this interactive bald eagle book that encourages them to move around while listening to the story.  They'll love flapping their wings like they're flying, gobbling down a tasty fish dinner, sitting on eggs, and more as they learn about bald eagles through guided pretend play.

Inside a Bald Eagle's Nest- Enjoy a rare look inside a bald eagle's nest as the eggs are nurtured and grow into adult birds.  Over 160 beautiful pictures show lots of aspects of eagle life, including their mating, hunting, and more.  Great for homeschool families and classroom use.

Bird Nests- There are many different types of bird nests all over the United States and this picture book showcases them.  From holes made of mud to giant nests in trees, this book will help you identify the types of nests around your neighborhood.

Everything You Need to Know About Birds-  Explore literally everything kids could possibly want to know about birds with this great resource book.  It covers anatomy, egg varieties, flightless birds, beak and food differences, and lots more.

Looking for Owls- This book teaches kids how to spot owls during the day or night and includes important facts about these nocturnal birds of prey.  The pictures show you what the different owl species look like and how they camouflage into their environment.

Schleich Eagle Toy- After reading about all the eagles, your kids will love to have an eagle toy to hold for themselves.  This hard plastic one is great for messy play and sensory bins since it washes off so easily.  My kids have their eyes on an eagle balance toy too.

Eagle Boy- The legend of Eagle Boy has origins in Pacific Northwest Native American culture.  An orphan boy befriends an eagle and saves his entire tribe from starvation.
