We love this book. The photos show Hank finding an egg and doing his absolute best to take care of it until he can get it back to it's momma and the safety of it's nest. Handsome, thinks kids will like it "because you can learn the story by looking at the photos". He has a hard time as a literal thinker to always get what the words are saying. But he was able to tell me the story using his own words on each page. At 10 while he can read the newspaper since the age of 5, he has a difficult time interpreting it. Goddess, who can't read well but understands everything loves the book because she thinks kids will love Hank. She wishes we had a "toy bear that looked just like him". She also thinks "the book should come with a bear". Her reason for loving the book is that she "can look at the beautiful pictures and almost hear a story being read to her in her head". She thinks kids will "like the book because they won't need to wait for a parent to read it to them". I love the book because as someone who has children that sometimes have a difficult time returning "day pets" they find outside back to the wilderness, this book shows Hank finding a bird's egg and returning it back to its rightful place. Adorable photos and sweet story without ANY words at all.

This unique wordless picture book tells a tender and beautiful story  of kindness.  Hank, a bear cub, while out in the woods one day, finds an egg on the forest floor.  He looks up into a tree and finds the nest where it belongs. He tries with all his abilities to replace that egg back into its proper home, but to no avail.   After many futile attempts, with the sun setting and the moon rising, Hank finally has to suspend his efforts.  He wanders away and makes himself a shelter for the night, builds a fire, constructs himself a blanket of leaves and lays down with the precious egg to protect it and keep it warm for the night.  Early the next morning he goes back to the spot and tries once again to figure out a way to replace the egg.  He meets another friend of the forest and co-operatively they work together to restore the egg to its rightful home.  A beautiful surprise emerges at the end of the story.  Could it be a reward for Hank's kindness and tender heart?  I think so.  Everyone loves a truly happy ending and this book will not disappoint you in that regard.   The pictures provide so many opportunities for vocabulary building, imagination exercises, and storytelling.  The beautiful artwork, (a series of miniatures and close-focus photography) are wonderful.  This book is recommended for kids ages 3-7.
