I can't much improve on what others have said in their reviews, but I'll throw in my two cents: this is a wonderful story illustrating the importance of personal freedom (something we need to appreciate more in this country, as a relative of mine living in China always reminds me). Peter Parnell's illustrations -- as in some of Byrd Baylor's other books -- are marvelous, provoking feelings in a very special way. Recommended.

My five-year-old son loves to think about flying with hawks and loves to think about having a hawk for a brother. He gets upset with Rudy Soto (the main character of this book) for taking a hawk chick from its nest, but enjoys the end when he sets him free and the hawk and the boy "talk" back and forth to each other. Like Rudy, my son thinks maybe there are some people out there who really do know how to fly...

The Caldecott-winning drawings are simple line drawings that evoke the idea of flight (or being grounded on occassion). The text accents the drawings--

It is

broken

into

many

short

lines,

which

draw the

eye up to

the top of

the pages.

It becomes a single free-verse poem of flight. The combination of the story, the exact words chosen, and the pictures have let to many discussions with my son already and he has only had this book for a couple of weeks. Highly recommended!

This is a beautiful story of a boy who steals an eagle out of his nest because he wants to fly. The boy learns that eagles are not happy when they are earthbound. Once he lets the eagle go, his spirit soars with the bird and he has learned an important life lesson.

A beautiful, well written, poignant story about a boy who wants to fly and does not understand why he can't. So, understanding birds the way he does, he wants to fly like a hawk. He decides to sneak off to Santos Mountain and steal a young Red Tail Hawk from of its nest. The boy, Rudy Soto, desires to be the hawk's brother so they can learn to fly together. But he finally realizes at the end of summer after all the other young hawks have learned to fly that the bird is unhappy living in a cage with a string tied around its leg. He realizes the bird will not give up and longs for freedom. The hawk wants to fly. That's all he's ever wanted, just like Rudy.

I won't give away the ending. You'll just have to read it with your children and share with them what this remarkable story has to offer.

Byrd Baylor's books are not just for children. Grownups enjoy them too. They are simple stories about desert life that offer great insight about living and what is truly important way beyond material possessions. This book is about sky and wind and freedom and the beauty that is unique to the desert.

I loved it!

A great story of how children believe in something that is so real and play it out. And yet are understood by adults. I wished my parents could see the 'reality of me' when I was in those places. I find it a great way of getting children to know they can dream.

"Celebrations" and "The Table..." were outstanding and this was close second.

It is an excellent book for children 5-7 years old. The story encourages us to take care of animals and allow them to be free and not captured in cages. The writing style the children found different and enjoyed seeing another way to put words on the page. You had to use your imagination since it used black sketched drawings. Younger children would enjoy the story.
Byrd Baylor writes with a natural insight. Parnell's artwork blending animals into surroundings illustrates their intertwined relationships beautifully.
