Everything You Need to Know About Birds is dedicated to Jim Cutting and the Lincoln Akerman School fourth-grade class of 2015. DK Senior Editor Shannon Beatty said, "We felt that Mr. Cutting and his fourth-grade class of 2015 deserved some recognition for all their hard work to make the red-tailed hawk the official New Hampshire state raptor. Inspired by their story, we've dedicated our new book to them, and put the red-tailed hawk on the cover."
