Description Description

When the Storks Came Home, the second picture book from best-selling author and globally significant conservationist Isabella Tree, is a charming, fictionalised retelling of the successful reintroduction of the white stork at the Knepp Estate, a UK native bird which has been brought back from extinction.

Eight-year-old Beanie 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.

As with every Ivy Kids book, When the Storks Came Home is printed as sustainably as possible on 100% post-consumer recycled paper, locally in the UK.
