With this story opening in Hungary, I have a special bias toward liking it. It teaches us about the unique aspects of storks: how they nest, how they behave, how they migrate. There are dramatic moments when we come to wordless double-page spreads in vibrant colors that illustrate the previous section of text. I can imagine a collective gasp from children in a story time at these points. I certainly have a new appreciation for storks after this fine story.
