Eaglet's World

Overview

It's a story for any child who must face something new, something that seems scary because it has never been experienced before. Eaglet breaks out of his shell and finds the nest is a safe place. His parents keep him warm and bring him food. But soon the nest becomes crowded. When he looks out beyond the rim, he can see blue everywhere. His parents coax him to the edge of the nest.

Overview

A gentle story of one little eagle who outgrows his space and faces his fear of change. It's a story for any child who must face something new, something that seems scary because it has never been experienced before. Eaglet breaks out of his shell and finds the nest is a safe place. His parents keep him warm and bring him food. But soon the nest becomes crowded. When he looks out beyond the rim, he can see blue everywhere. His parents coax him to the edge of the nest. Eaglet is frightened. Surely they don't expect him to follow them as they spread their wings?

From the time he is still in the egg, a baby bald eagle is reluctant to take each new step in his growth, until the day comes when he flies and sees the beautiful world beyond his parents' nest.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-An upbeat, encouraging story about an eaglet's development from the egg to his first flight. His fear of leaving the warmth and security of the nest for the endless blueness of the world beyond captures some of the feelings that young children experience when venturing outside the home for the first time. Gabriel's impressive full-color illustrations, some, two-page spreads, successfully reflect Eaglet's anxiety and, later, his mastery of flight. The constant support and reassurances from his parents add to the relevance of the story for young children.-Cynthia M. Sturgis, Ledding Library, Milwaukie, OR Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Minshull (The Cornhusk Doll, 1987) follows an eaglet from preconscious life inside his egg through his first successful flight past snow-capped mountains as a young adult. She shows the gradual expansion of his world, from the confines of the egg to life as a baby in the cozy nest to his first scary flight when his mother nudges him out into the world. Those who object to anthropomorphized animal stories will want to let this one fly on by, as Eaglet has all the emotions and rational capabilities of a young child. But for those who don't mind the format and the determined cheery tone, Eaglet is an appealing, brave little character whose story has obvious parallels for children facing their first forays out of their own familial nests. Gabriel (Where Do I Sleep?, not reviewed) provides striking paintings of Eaglet's growth in double-page spreads that are designed for reading to a group. An author's note offers additional background on eagles that will be useful for classroom discussions. (Picture book. 4-8)

CHAPTER 1

Where Eaglet was ... was cozy. It was dark and damp and warm.

When Eaglet moved, he touched slippery smoothness. Sometimes, he felt movement above ... a jostling ... a gentle rocking. He heard whirring ... quiet murmurs. What could it be? Where could it be? Would he ever go there? He cuddled in dark, warm softness. He didn't want to go anywhere. Not now. Not ever. Where he was ... was cozy.

But one day, where Eaglet was ... was too small.

His wings pressed against hard roundness. His beak clicked. Click-click. Click-click-click.

Faster and faster he pecked.

He decided to discover what lay beyond that familiar smoothness! For where Eaglet was ... was too small.

Where Eaglet was ... was safe. The nest was deep and sturdy. Rough twigs made it strong; down made it soft and cuddly. His mother's and father's wings kept him warm.

Sometimes, their wings whirred; they lifted off the nest, taking warmth with them. Then, Eaglet learned, there would soon be food.

He opened his beak wide for wriggling insects, or soft, mushy grubs, or small, firm fragments of fish. He would stay here forever. Forever. Where he was ... was warm and safe.
