"As this wordless story opens, a crane lays an egg and contentedly sits on it. But when a gust of wind from a sudden storm blows the egg from the nest, the heartbroken crane flies away. And then, from high overhead, the bird spots something. Upon closer inspection, it appears to be an egg. And since it seems to be all alone, the crane takes it back to the nest and incubates it. When sounds start coming from the egg and it's time to hatch, what emerges, surprisingly, is a human baby! No matter: the crane is delighted, and showers the child with love. They even go on a high-flying adventure with other bird parents and their young ones-including not only a baby bird, but also a cat, a pig, a rabbit, a fish, and other humans-before returning home to the nest at dusk for a cozy, cuddly sleep. This is one reading of this story. Since this is a wordless book, the images are open to interpretation, and there is lots of “space” that any child or reader's imagination might fill-in in different ways."--
