In this introduction to one of nature’s most gorgeous birds, young readers will experience the life cycle of the flamingo. First the female lays an egg at the water’s edge. Then she and her mate take turns sitting on the egg to keep it warm. Eventually, a sticky head peeks out! Then the parents feed the wobbly chick and watch him grow…until he’s ready to fly and start his own life as an adult bird. Jonathan London’s spare, poetic text and Kristina Rodanas’s spectacular pencil and watercolor artwork create a wonderful tribute to this beautiful bird. An author’s note at the end of the book provides more information about the life cycle of the flamingo.
