My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a wonderful short read filled with beautiful illustrations. It is symbolic of accepting differences and be inclusive in one’s outlook of life. The author tries to impart this knowledge through a tiny bird, Mama Warbler , who is sitting on a clutch of eggs waiting for them to hatch. She is eagerly awaiting her babies. But then a cuckoo pushes her out of her nest and lays an egg of it’s own. The cuckoo’s egg is large but Mama Warbler accepts the egg as one of her own. When all the eggs the cuckoo chick hatches, it is large, noisy and hungry, and despite the neighbor’s complaints, Mama warbler does’nt mind it at all. But Mama warbler still continue to love the chick after one of her own eggs hatch ? That is the crux of the story. I totally loved the and going to give it to my boys to read !
