About this title


Here is a magnificently illustrated story of one whooping crane, Wakanda, who, through her curiosity and questions to her parents, shares the story of an incredible species being saved by caring biologists.

This delightful, educational children's chapter book takes place in central Wisconsin's Necedah National Wildlife Refuge, the starting place of the new eastern flyway to southern wildlife refuges in Florida.

Whooping cranes, the tallest birds in North America, came so near extinction that Wakanda Whooper offers an incredible story of survival. With seventeen cranes left in the wild by the 1940s, humans finally came to their rescue in 2001 at the eleventh hour. The effort continues to this day.

Included in this 72-page book are many full-page illustrations, multiple hands-on activities, a glossary, and crane trivia pages. Through this story, the author hopes young people will be inspired to care for and help save our environment with its beautiful and varied species.

About the Author:

Sandia Kosmo is first a writer whose passion for prose and poetry has taken her many directions. She is an environmentalist. Kosmo has served as a journalist, a high school and college teacher, a public relations specialist, a college administrator, and a Lutheran and United Church of Christ (UCC) ordained pastor. She has a BA in English and journalism from UW-Eau Claire, Wisconsin; an MS in audio visual education from UW-Stout, Menomonie, Wisconsin; and an MDiv in theology from Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota. After several years in New Mexico, Kosmo retired and returned to Wisconsin. But every winter, just like whooping cranes, she migrates south.

Lisa Perrin Kosmo was born in Munsan-ri, South Korea. She received a BFA from the College of Visual Arts in St. Paul. Her art is a reflection of her multicultural ethnicity. She is a member of the Red Cliff Band, Ojibwe Nation in Bayfield, Wisconsin. Lisa lives in northeastern Minnesota.
