Product Description

Imagine a friendship between a man and bird that helps the Whooping Cranes survive extinction. It really happened!

This best-selling children's biography,, Dancing With Tex: The Remarkable Friendship To Save The Whooping Cranes shares the story of how world-famous ornithologist, Dr. George Archibald dances with a rare bird named Tex to help her lay a fertile egg. It took six years of never giving up, but it finally happened... and the story history on the Johnny Carson show!

All birds perform a mating dance before laying an egg. Scientists need Tex to produce chicks to save her endangered species . But since Tex was raised by a zookeeper in Texas, her brain believes she belongs with people, and she stays away from other birds!

With beautiful illustrations by Sergio Drumond , a world-class illustrator, this compelling elementary biography , shows how Tex moved from the San Antonio Zoo to Patuxent Wildlife Research Refuge, but no one could get her to be near other birds. So how could she EVER hatch an egg?

At the same time, this children's friendship book describes how college friends, George Archibald and Ron Sauey, want to do something no one has done before. They collaborate to create a place to care for all fifteen species of cranes... The International Crane Foundation, in Baraboo, Wisconsin.

After collecting 14 different species of cranes, George and Ron are missing the rarest kind of all: the Whooping Cranes. George remembers meeting Tex in the past, and works hard to bring her and a male Whooping Crane named Tony to his unique environmental organization.

But the BIG question remains... Will Tex like George enough to dance with her?

All cranes dance with a partner they like before laying an egg. No one knows if Tex will accept George as her dancing partner. And if Tex dances with George, and gets special shots from nearby scientists, can she lay a fertile egg?

What happens when everything keeps going wrong? Will George give up?

Dancing With Tex, a childrens book for ages 6 to 8, offers a captivating, heart-warming, and memorable animal friendship story that reinforces the values of believing in your dreams, persevering and the importance of friends.

Author Lynn Sanders was honored in 2017 by The Illinois Conservation Foundation as their "2017 Conservation Author of the Year" for raising environmental awareness through this book.

Added bonuses include an introduction, useful vocabulary words, questions & answers, discussion questions, and a photo of the real George and Tex dancing together!

A perfect educational elementary biography for children young and old.
