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.
Hank finds a book is a sweet story about Hank finding a book and the different steps he takes to try to put the egg back into its nest. The photo images of the background is amazingly beautiful and my kids really love flipping through the book. There are no written words, but the photos clearly convey the plot. This is a book that we will treasure for years.
