Book Nook: Saving Jemima: Life and Love with a Hard-Luck Jay, by Julie Zickefoose
Julie Zickefoose returned to the program to discuss her thoroughly heart warming and utterly amazing book "Saving Jemima: Life and Love with a Hard-Luck Jay." Julie rescued a baby blue jay and raised it for about a month until it was ready to be released back into the wild.
She named the bird Jemima and when you read this story you will fall in love with this spunky little bird just like Julie did. Julie's watercolor paintings and photos of Jemima are incredible and they complement this engaging tale in the most wonderful ways.
This book will be on my list of favorite non-fiction reads this year. Do you love wild birds? Do you feed them? Check out this story. Prepare to be astonished.
