Take It From Me: Hank Finds an Egg Book and Hummingbird Feeder (Review & Giveaway)

Hank Finds an Egg Book and Hummingbird Feeder (Review & Giveaway)

Reading to my kids is something that I make a goal to do often because I know how important it is. I find that our relationship with one another is strengthened, their academics improve, they learn the basics of how to read a book and they learn patience.
We had the opportunity to review the Story Woods' book called Hank Finds An Egg. This book is exceptional! I was little surprised at first because there are no words through out the book, but it flows so nicely, there is no need for words. Rebecca Dudley's dioramas are meticulously put together and as a photographer myself, I know how much time and effort it takes to get a picture just right. My kids really enjoyed reading this book together and were able to ask a lot of great questions. Through each photo, they were able to predict what was going to happen next. I was very surprised how at the time we spent with this book. Great book!
About the book:
"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 has been warmly received by readers and critics alike, already earning two starred reviews (Publishers Weekly and Booklist), as well as other numerous glowing reviews from The New York Times, School Library Journal, and The New York Observer. 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."
