Amy"s mother was dead so shewas raised by her father and she lived Canada. Amy had never met her father. So she didn't like him. Then she found sixteen eggs. She raised eggs and born bird.

I was moved because this book descrived she grow up. She love Geese. At, first, she wasn’t alive but when she raised Geese, she is so alive.
