This book was provided to me through the BookSneeze program in exchange for an honest review. I have mixed feelings on this book.
is analogous to international adoption. It is based on this chicken who
lives in the woods with many other animals. This chicken is very happy
being in the woods even though she has talked to chickens who live in
chicken coops. One day this chicken realizes she has laid an egg. But
because of her living conditions it becomes a burden to take care of
this egg she has laid.
Meanwhile there is a chicken couple in the
chicken house who wants to lay an egg but cannot. They try all sorts of
ways - on their backs, on their heads (pictures included...).
can predict, the chicken who is burdened with the egg gives her egg to
the couple who wants an egg. Very sweet as the chicken struggles with
her love for the egg (and chick to come) but knowing she cannot take
care of it in the woods.
In the midst of this story there is a
redbird who sings and guides them in their decisions. That part was kind
of random and after reading the book three times I decided the redbird
is analogous to God but in a way as to not offend people...
