A surprising picture book: The Egg by Geraldo Valério

The first thing that you (or a child) will notice is that this book contains not a single word of text.  The pictures tell the story and convey both what is happening and the emotions of the characters.

This is a tale about becoming a family and how a family may not always look as we expect.  The crane is caring for an egg; the bird is upset when the egg falls out of the nest…a spoiler (the egg survives).  Enjoy the surprise of seeing who hatches and the relationship that ensues.

I like that this book has no text.  Because of this a child and adult can tell the story and talk about it.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
