Baker & Taylor A chick hatched by hens turns out to be an eaglet who must get help from a boy in learning how to fly.
Baker & Taylor After the egg he had given the chickens hatches and the bird within turns out to be an eaglet, the young boy, with the help of the hens and rooster, work together to teach it how to fly and are thrilled when the day finally comes that it takes to the sky and flies away to live the life for which it was destined.
A young eagle learns to soar in Caldecott-winner Ed Young's newest work.
With beautiful, sweeping artwork and spare, lyrical text, Ed Young tells the story of a boy who finds an egg and gives it to a flock of chickens. When the egg hatches not a chick but an eaglet, the hens, the roosters, and the boy all band together to help the young bird fly. In this lovely story about friendship and dedication, the eaglet perseveres and leaves behind the dusty earth for endless pastel skies.
