Very sweet story! I like the realistic aspect of what to do when you find a stranded baby from the wild. Do you leave it to nature? Do you care for it? Keep it? Give it to a home?

The naming chapter was my favorite. Could really sense the emotion even with the simple text.

I liked where it ended too.
