When Blue Met Egg by Lindsay Ward - ESSENTIAL

Ward, Lindsay  When Blue Met Egg  Dial Books for Young Readers, 2012.  $16.99  PICTURE BOOK  Content: G.  

Blue is a cute bird that wakes up one winter morning to find what he thinks is an egg in his nest, but is actually a snowball.  Blue goes around New York trying to find Egg’s mother, but eventually gives up looking and decides to take care of Egg himself.  Egg and Blue have a great winter together and as spring comes, Egg starts getting smaller.  Finally one morning Blue wakes up to find Egg is gone, but in his place is a pretty spring flower.  

The illustrations are very cute and the story is a great lesson on friendship.
