Early one Spring, Mommy is busy cleaning and gardening when she finds a bird’s nest on her grill.
She calls her two little boys, Brian and Dameon, to see the nest. Together, over the next few weeks, they watch two baby birds grow strong. Eventually the young birds flew away—but left in the bottom of the nest is one tiny blue egg. What has happened to the egg that did not hatch? What can the two boys and their mother learn about nature from the little egg?
In this children’s story, mommy and her two little boys find a nest on their grill during the spring, and together they learn that life is sometimes unfair and about the cycle of life.
