Hank Finds an Egg
“Storywoods” blog creator Rebecca Dudley uses her expert photography and multi-media diorama art in this beautiful wordless picture book story featuring Hank, a sweet little animal of the woods. While on a walk, Hank finds an egg on the ground beneath a bird’s nest. When he fails in his valiant attempts to return the egg to the nest before nightfall, Hank cares for the egg and keeps it warm until he can try again the next day. This time, he has some help, and makes new friends as a result. Children will enjoy pouring over the delightfully detailed and dreamy pictures, and telling the fanciful story again and again. Teachers and others looking for ideas on using the book in a lesson can find Peter Pauper Press’ Hank Finds an Egg page, which includes a link to a free downloadable Common Core Aligned Teaching Guide.
Hank Finds an Egg is recommended for ages 3-8.
