Beauty & the Beak: How Science, Technology, & a 3D-Printed Beak Rescued a Bald Eagle


Winter the dolphin’s prosthetic tail made a huge splash among young readers. Now Beauty the bald eagle’s prosthetic beak lets young readers soar, with a new, nonfiction book about the wild eagle that was shot, rescued, and received a pioneering, 3D-printed prosthetic beak. Award-winning children’s author Deborah Lee Rose,, recounts the remarkable scientific collaboration that produced Beauty’s new beak, and her literary collaboration with raptor biologist Janie Veltkamp that produced Beauty and the Beak (now a Junior Library Guild selection).
