“Hank Finds an Egg” by Rebecca Dudley
This book has no words, just detailed photos of a bear named Hank who finds an egg and goes on an adventure to find where is came from. The photographs are of a forest scene made with what looks like felt, clay and other materials that can be used in small scale models.
My 7 year old loved reading this book to her little sister. With no words she was able to use her imagination to tell the story the way she sees it. Each time she has “read” it she adds more and more details to the story. I love seeing her be creative with her story telling. My kids love the photos and want a Hank stuffie for their bedroom. Something else I love about this story is it shows Hank struggling with the dilemma to get the egg back to it’s home and how he doesn’t give up and tries different ideas. That is such a positive message for my kids.
I would recommend this book to anyone who works with kids or has kids. It will spur their imagination. We look forward to more books done by Rebecca Dudley.
