Hattie Peck adores eggs of all kinds. However, she cannot make any of her own. No worries—Hattie has collected eggs from all over the world, hatched them, and raised her blended family of cockatoos, storks, owls, anything from an egg—even reptiles. But now it’s time. They all need to leave her big loving nest. So off the flock goes, on their biggest—and saddest—adventure. Even though, in her heart, Hattie knows it’s best. A poignant story about family and differences, making hard decisions, letting go and inclusion.

A charming story about a hen who adopts all kinds of hatchlings to raise as her own. When the time comes for her large family to leave the nest, she goes above and beyond to see that they make it in the world, but her children have a surprise for her in the end! A nice addition to preschool storytimes about Family, Mother's Day, Eggs, or Birthdays.

Great adventure with an intrepid wanna-be chicken mom. Kids will love Hattie, moms will be inspired by her and you may cry at the end of this one.
