Synopsis

I Dreamed of Flying Like a Bird My Adventures Photographing Wild Animals from a Helicopter by Robert Haas

Over the course of 8 short chapters, stunningly illustrated by his aerial photography, Bobby Haas shares with kids the adventure that is aerial photography. He relates the thrills, the close calls, and the incredible joy that comes with observing animals in a way that few humans ever have. Each chapter features a particular observations: lions hunting buffaloes, flamingoes taking off from the surface of the water and miraculously shaping themselves into the shape of a flamingo, a lone wildebeest travelling with a herd of zebra, almost crashing into a group of sharks, a crocodile catching its prey and eating it, whales twirling in the water, bears coming out of hibernation and feasting on salmon, and flying literally with the birds. This title releases simultaneously in reinforced.
