Description



About the Book



Inspired by true events, When the Storks Came Home tells of how the magnificent white stork was brought back from extinction in the UK after over 600 years.



Book Synopsis



When The Storks Came Home is a charming, fictionalised retelling of the successful white stork reintroduction at the Knepp Estate. The white stork is a UK native bird which was last year brought back from extinction.

In this second picture book from bestselling author and globally significant conservationist Isabella Tree, we meet eight-year-old Beanie, who loves birds. When she discovers that huge white storks used to live in her own village but were hunted to extinction in the UK 600 years ago, she is determined to find a way to bring them back.

But reintroducing a vanished species is not so simple! Storks can fly hundreds of miles, so releasing storks into the local countryside won't be enough to make them return and stay for good. With the help of other villagers, Beanie hatches a plan...

Beautiful illustrations help bring this powerful and important story to life, teaching children about conservation and their environment in an accessible way.

Ivy Kids brings you beautiful, sustainably printed books to rewild your child, nurture creativity, and foster a deep connection with the living world. Ivy Kids books are planet-friendly, printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper, locally to where they will be sold.
