Overview

In this delightful Read & Listen ebook, when a strange egg appears in their nest, Mr. and Mrs. Bird kindly take it upon themselves to raise the "baby bird" inside. But when the egg hatches, the Birds are in for a big surprise-"Junior" is the oddest-looking baby bird they've ever seen-with big, long jaws full of teeth and an appetite to match. In fact, he looks more like a baby alligator than a baby bird! Nevertheless, the devoted Birds run themselves ragged feeding Junior until he gets so big, he must leave the nest or it will collapse underneath him. But how can Junior fly without wings? To the delight of the Birds-and readers!-the dilemma is solved when Junior takes off from a branch overlooking a pond.

This ebook includes Read & Listen audio narration.

I am an adult and this is one of my favorite books! Mr. and Mrs. Bird are great parents and know just when to let "Junior" leave the nest. They work day in and day out with seemingly no reward only to learn that "Junior" is a "bird" of a different sort. This story can be used as a metaphor for parenting, adoption, and/or letting go of adult kids. I give it to all of my friends when their children graduate from high school. I had one friend tell me that it was a catharsis, allowing the tears to flow while experiencing great pride in her independent daughter who was "flying from the nest". Get it if you are a parent. Read it to your child then keep it for yourself!

Three of my grandchildren have "read" this book on my NookColor NookBook. They like the story and the fact that they can either read for themselves or have it read to them. The 7 & 8 year olds like to have it read to them as well as the 5 year old. A good book for quiet time when I can't play with them for a moment.
