One Eagle Soaring

Roy Henry Vickers' One Eagle Soaring

Roy Henry Vickers, illustrated by Robert Budd

Following on the success of their bestselling board book Hello Humpback!, the celebrated and award-winning authors Roy Henry Vickers and Robert Budd are back with One Eagle Soaring, the second volume in their exciting new series, First West Coast Books. One Eagle Soaring, a "first numbers" book, explores counting and numbers with the help of West Coast animals-from a single eagle aloft, to a pair of swimming whales, as well as leaping frogs, honey-hungry bears and a group of 10 dozing marmots. Combining Roy Henry Vickers' vivid illustrations, a glossy tactile finish and a simple yet catchy text, this sturdy board book introduces babies and toddlers to the spectacular scenery and wildlife of British Columbia.
