From The Publisher:
The charming Hank Finds an Egg instills a sense of exploration, wonder, creativity, kindness, and self-confidence in the most unique way -- not with words but through the amazing creativity of author Rebecca Dudley. Dudley, an accomplished builder, photographer, and artist, weaves a heartwarming tale with meticulously detailed dioramas, all designed, created, and photographed by her. When Hank walks in the woods and comes across an egg lying on the forest floor, he immediately gets to work trying to return the egg to its nest, getting increasingly more creative to accomplish the task. As the story unfolds, readers young and old will delight in the richness of detail in each picture—the shape of each leaf, the ripples on each tree trunk, the emotions displayed through Hank’s gentle and kind demeanor. Hank Finds an Egg is a wonderful tale that will inspire readers of all ages to believe in themselves and the goodness of others.
Hank Finds an Egg is published by Peter Pauper Press (www.peterpauper.com), whose focus is to create books that provide a strong foundation from which young children can learn, grow, and flourish.
The 411 by Maria, Handsome & Goddess:
The photos show Hank finding an egg and doing his absolute best to take care of it until he can get it back to it's momma and the safety of it's nest.
Handsome, thinks kids will like it "because you can learn the story by looking at the photos".
He has a hard time as a literal thinker to always get what the words are saying. But he was able to tell me the story using his own words on each page. At 10 while he can read the newspaper since the age of 5, he has a difficult time interpreting it.
Goddess, who can't read well but understands everything loves the book because she thinks kids will love Hank. She wishes we had a "toy bear that looked just like him". She also thinks "the book should come with a bear". Her reason for loving the book is that she "can look at the beautiful pictures and almost hear a story being read to her in her head". She thinks kids will "like the book because they won't need to wait for a parent to read it to them".
I love the book because as someone who has children that sometimes have a difficult time returning "day pets" they find outside back to the wilderness, this book shows Hank finding a bird's egg and returning it back to its rightful place. Adorable photos and sweet story without ANY words at all.
