Blue wakes up one winter’s day when a mysterious egg lands in her nest. Blue places egg in a bucket and looks all over New York City for Egg’s mother, but she is unable to find the mother. Blue takes Egg in for an afternoon of wonderful fun making snowbirds and taking trips down the hill on a sled. Winter turns to spring and Egg grows smaller. Blue tries to care for her sick friend and gets a big surprise.
Lindsay Ward’s picture book is filled with cheery artwork. Blue’s expressive little face adds volumes to the heart warming nature of the story. I think this whimsical story of friendship would be great to read aloud during the change of seasons with preschool and young school age children.
