A Giant Egg and Fluffy Feathers (Ostrich)

Tap! Tap! Tap! Crack! Using his beak, a baby bird breaks out of an egg that’s nearly the size of a melon. With his spindly legs and long, thin neck, who does this little baby belong to? The little creature breaking out of his egg is an ostrich chick, and one day he will be the biggest bird around – just like his dad! As readers turn the pages, they will discover the ways in which an ostrich chick is similar to and different from its mum and dad. They will learn how the parent birds care for the chick, and they will see how the little bird grows, changes and gets ready for his adult life on the grasslands of Africa.
