This bio was a 4-star rating on Goodreads for me recently, so I’m sharing it here:
For the Birds: The Life of Roger Tory Peterson (Boyds Mills Press, 2011), by Peggy Thomas, illustrated by Laura Jacques:?This biography of Roger Tory Peterson takes us through his childhood and into his role as an environmentalist. It’s full of great details and anecdotes of both his childhood and adulthood. At almost 3,500 words, this is not a read-aloud-in-one-sitting picture book. It great for independent readers, especially ones with an interest in birds and wildlife. The back matter gives more details about Peterson and his legacy.
