In this deeply moving story of love and loss, Newbery Medalist Patricia MacLachlan celebrates the beautiful relationship between children and grandparents as well as the nurturing world of nature.

Grandfather shares his love of and information about birds with his grandchildren. Milo, the youngest who rarely talks, is especially attentive. When Grandfather can no longer see well, Milo helps him spot and take care of some of his favorite birds. The day comes when the children come home from school and Grandfather is no longer there; but Milo knows where he is—outside soaring through the sky is the bald eagle Grandfather wanted to be.
