Content

The little sparrow is so excited that there is an egg in the nest. Mama says that he’ll soon have a little sister or brother! Of course the sparrow has lots of questions: What will happen next? Was I inside an egg once, too? When will my baby sibling hatch? In the following days the sparrow helps Mama and Papa with nest building and other preparations. And then – finally – it is time. His little brother hatches from the egg, and now they are four in the sparrow’s nest!

This story about the arrival of a sibling touches on children’s experiences and feelings, and is told in an especially insightful way. The charming illustrations and the cheerful young sparrow ensure that this story will quickly become a favorite.
