The Stone Bird
Eliza finds a stone on the beach. She thinks it is an egg, but her mom tells her it is a stone. Eliza keeps her stone egg in a nest made of socks. One day, she wakes up, and instead of a stone, her egg has turned into a little stone bird. Then another morning, there is a pebble beside her stone bird. Eliza knows her bird has laid an egg. Eliza waits for her pebble to hatch, and eventually Eliza has two stone birds.
The best thing about reading The Stone Bird are the illustrations. The illustrations are beautiful. The illustrations show the emotion in Eliza’s face: happiness, love, and sadness. I like that Eliza believes that her stone is an egg and it is magic that it hatches. Eliza believes that her bird eventually flies away. The Stone Bird would make a great read-aloud or bedtime story.
