Item Description...
When Julie and Ivy visit a wildlife rescue center after finding a baby owl in Golden Gate Park, they learn about two eagles who need help before they can be released back into the wild. Simultaneous.

Publishers Description
Julie and Ivy are eating snowcones in Golden Gate Park when they hear an odd sound. It's a baby owl--and it needs help. At a wildlife rescue center, Julie meets Shasta and Sierra, two bald eagles. Shasta's wing is injured, and Julie hopes he'll be able to fly again--but that can only happen if the rescue center raises enough money to release the eagles back into the wild. Julie feels sure that if people knew about the eagles, they'd want to help. For Earth Day, Julie thinks of a unique way to tell the public of the eagles' plight. But money isn't exactly pouring in . . . and time is running out

More About Megan McDonald, Robert Hunt & Susan McAliley

Megan McDonald Megan McDonald, beloved author of the Judy Moody books, is also a gifted storyteller. She is the author of When the Library Lights Go Out", illustrated by Katherine Tillotson; The Hinky-Pink", illustrated by Brian Floca; and the now-classic Is This a House for Hermit Crab?", illustrated by S.D. Schindler. She lives in Sebastopol, California.

"Sometimes I think I AM Judy Moody," says Megan McDonald, author of the award-winning JUDY MOODY books. "I'm certainly moody, like she is. Judy has a strong voice and always speaks up for herself. I like that."

Being able to speak up for herself wasn't always easy. The author grew up as the youngest of five sisters in a house full of books in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her father, an ironworker, built bridges across the city and was known to his coworkers as "Little Johnny the Storyteller." Every evening at dinnertime the McDonald family would gather around the kitchen table, talking and telling stories. But with four older sisters, Megan remembers barely being able to get a word in edgewise. "I'm told I began to stutter," she says. “That’s when my mother gave me a notebook, so that I could write down everything I wanted to say!”

Megan McDonald currently resides in Sebastopol, in the state of California.

Treehuger  Jul 7, 2008
I understand that saving an eagle is important, I don't mind that, the eagle is our national symbole after all. But I believe the woman who wrote this put too much emphasize on saving the earth.
I'm a Christian, I believe we should take care of the Earth, but at the same time we should care for people more. I saw this as a Earth worshipping book, I wouldn't want my child reading this.
This Book Soars!  May 11, 2008
After finding a baby owl in the park, Julie and Ivy give it to a local wildlife rescue center. There, Julie meets Robin Young, a graduate student at Berkeley, and four beautiful eagles: Shasta, Sierra, and their two eaglets. Shasta has an injured wing and cannot be released back into the wild until he recuperates, but if the center doesn't raise enough money soon, the eagles will become too dependent upon their human caretakers to ever be released.

Though Julie enjoys hanging out with Robin and helping feed the baby eagles, she wants to do something more. After her teacher brings up Earth Day, Julie eagerly tells her class all about her feathered friends. Before she knows it, Project SAVE - Save All Vanishing Eagles - has taken flight. On Earth Day, she and her classmates set up booths at Golden Gate Park to help raise awareness and money for the center and for the eagles. The event is a huge success, but they still don't make enough money to create a new habitat for the eagles. Some more quick thinking and unexpected visitors help them make their goal - just in time for Julie's tenth birthday.

This is the fourth American Girls book about Julie Albright, written by Megan McDonald and illustrated beautifully by Robert Hunt. (Look at the detail on the characters' clothing and check out the wingspan of those eagles!) This story will teach young readers about eagles, Earth Day, conservation, and endangered species, and it will definitely inspire readers to take a look at the world around them and get active in their schools and communities. Let's celebrate Earth Day every day!
In a world of broken-down Britney's...  Dec 20, 2007
In a world of broken-down, drug-addicted teen stars and pop princesses with tarnished crowns, it is refreshing to read a book about a young girl with strong moral fortitude and solid goals.

Julie Albright, the latest American Girl, is a ten year old girl living in 1970s San Francisco. In the first book, Meet Julie, we learn that her parents have recently divorced, forcing Julie and her sister to move away from their friends, father, and family home. We also learn that Julie is a quietly determined girl who cares deeply about those near to her and the issues that are dear to her.

In Julie and the Eagles, Julie and her best friend, Ivy Ling find a baby owl in a local park and learn that the choices America has made to modernize and advance themselves technologically have had big effects on the environment. Soon, Julie hatches a plan to help save two eagles and their hatchling.

Why I love Julie and the Eagles:
This book tells the story of a compassionate, intelligent young girl living in a time of great change, yet it never preaches or attempts to make the reader feel guilty. I love that American Girl seems to be committed to addressing the concerns of young women living in the world today by giving them identifiable characters who are faced with similar challenges. It's not enough to tell a young girl that she should have goals and stay out of trouble. I love that American Girl, with these Julie books, actually shows girls how they can stay out of trouble by caring about something greater than themselves. In a world of sad, broken-down Britney's and troubled, unlovely Lyndsey's, it's nice to have a Julie to introduce my daughter to!
Really good kids book adults can enjoy, too!  Nov 26, 2007
This is the fourth book in the 'Julie' series from American Girl. I am an adult who works at AG, but that doesn't influence my opinions on the books. It just makes it easy for me to read them. I thought this book, in particular, was great. I was born two years after the fictional character Julie, so my experiences are very similar to hers. I loved the 70's references in the book and thought they were very accurate. The author does a great job of slipping educational bits into all the 'Julie' books and they're still very entertaining.
This book focuses on environmental awareness. Julie finds an abandoned, sick owl in the park, and when she takes it to an animal rescue facility, she meets two eagles, Shasta and Sierra, and their baby. Shasta is recovering from an injured wing. She learns that if the eagles are not released into the wild soon, they won't ever be able to go back and will have to live in a zoo. The problem is, the center doesn't have the money needed to accomplish an eagle release. Julie gets her family and class involved and starts a fund-raiser to save the eagles.
At the end of each book in the series, there is a section telling real events that happened during the time the book takes place. This one has nice information about how new laws were passed in the 70's banning DDT and how laws were put in place to make sure animal habitats wouldn't be disturbed before new building takes place.
This is a great book for children 7 and up. I recommend the whole series.
