Rosie's Rescue: Rosie the Roseate Spoonbill

Edward Ritts

2020 FAPA President's Book Awards Winner - Children Picture Book (Bronze) Rosie is a Roseate Spoonbill; a pink wading bird that lives in a warm climate in Florida, Alabama, and Texas. The story follows Rosie from the time she is hatched and she encounters a great Florida storm. The wind blows her nest into the air and it lands in the ocean. A fisherman finds her and takes her to a bird rescue center. Lovely story with beautiful illustrations.
