Award-winning science journalist, Nicola Jones, writes about a heartwarming true story of the rescue and rehabilitation of Zalea, a three-week-old northern spotted owl, after she fell from her tree in Saving the Spotted Owl: Zalea’s Story (Kids Can Press $21.99) for ages 8-12. Biologists intervened to save her, bringing her to the Northern Spotted Owl Breeding Centre. There, she joined others like her, receiving care until she could be released back into the wild. Through Zalea’s journey, readers learn about the biology and life cycle of owls, conservation efforts and habitat protection. Jones skillfully weaves educational content with Zalea’s narrative, while Alexandra Finkeldey’s beautiful illustrations and real-life photos enhance the details of the story. 9781525305559
