About the Book
Magnificent species inhabit the world of birds, while grackles are more-or-less ordinary.  Fortunately, they are capable of heroism when their dreams lead them to reach for the sky.  They love human beings, but also suffer because of them.  Dire consequences follow the urbanization of their natural habitat.  Although civilization has been a mixed bag for grackles as they struggle to survive and multiply, these little blackbirds inspire us to stay green in order for life to survive on our planet.Los Zanates de Valle Verde

Their Lori VanKirk Schue illustrated picture books, Grackles of Green Grove Protect Their Land, and the Spanish version, Los Zanates de Valle Verde Protegen Sus Tierras, translated by Georgina Tezer, will be for sale. Related coloring booklets on environmental themes, in both languages, can be ordered. Great for kids, grandkids, and teachers of language students of all ages!

The Dallas Arboretum, 8525 Garland Road, Dallas, Texas.

Join Nicki Cohen at her book reading and signing.  It will be held at the TWU Blagg Huey Library in Denton, Tx. on Thursday, November 2nd at 1:30 pm.
