MY THOUGHTS:

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Helen Frost has worked with photographer, RickLieder on four other collaborations, including Step Gently Out, Sweep Up the Sun, Among a Thousand Fireflies, and Wake Up!

She has other books out as well. Rick Lieder is also a painter and illustrator. This is a team to pay attention to. What a wonderful combination of verse and photo put together to tell a remarkable story about a baby crane’s entrance into the world and life.

It was love at first sight at the cover. How can anyone resist it? Prepare for your heart to melt on the front end pages. Helen Frost's gently lyrical poem from the chick's pov is gorgeously illustrated with absolutely stunning photographs of the eggs, chick, sibling and doting parents on mostly double-page spreads. Perfect.

The rhyming text in this book felt a bit more generic than what I typically expect from this author, but the photographs of the baby sandhill crane finding his way in the early hours of his life definitely make up for it. My kids love birds and all baby animals, so I think this will be a hit for them.

A beautifully illustrated, easy to understand story about a majestic Sandhill Crane couple and their newborns that just have hatched. The parents teach them the way as their sometimes wobbly legs follow their parents here and there.

I loved the story with rhyming verse and the photography with it's many 2-page spreads are gorgeous. Perfect as an Eastern gift or for any occasion.

Beautiful, especially pertinent to Nebraska where the cranes rest during migration.

Beautiful photographs of Sandhill crane chicks and their parents - would have liked to see them grow up ALL the way (colts, adults). One of the chicks narrates its journey (in verse) into the world and its early life with its family. Competent, but not particularly noteworthy text. A factual summary of the Sandhill crane life cycle follows the main event.
