  • Author Visit April 11 & 13, 2012

    recently welcomed author Susan Sachs Levine, illustrator Erin
    McCauley Burchwell, and Legacy a peregrine falcon of the Ohio Bird Sanctuary. They presented a program about the book “Packard Takes Flight.” The book is about a peregrine falcon chick that falls from his nest and ends up on a tour of famous Columbus landmarks. Ms. Levine talked about how she wrote the book and Ms. Burchwell discussed how she illustrated it. Abby of the Ohio Bird Sanctuary then introduced Legacy, a retired peregrine falcon who delighted the students with her flapping wings and bird calls. Then students went to three activity stations where they learned more about authors, illustrators, and falcons. Please view a slide show of the visit on this webpage!
