When a strange egg appears in their nest, Mr. and Mrs. Bird kindly take it upon themselves to raise the "baby bird" inside. But when the egg hatches, the Birds are in for a big surprise--"Junior" is the oddest-looking baby bird they've ever seen--with big, longjawsfull of teeth and an appetite to match. In fact, he looks more like a babyalligatorthan a baby bird! Nevertheless, the devoted Birds run themselves ragged feeding Junior until he gets so big, he must leave the nest or it will collapse underneath him.But how can Junior fly without wings? To the delight of the Birds--and readers!--the dilemma is solved when Junior takes off from a branch overlooking a pond.

Good book for working on comprehension, which is explained through the pictures while reading the plot.

My 4.5 year old son was attracted to this book in the library. He loves it so much that now I have to find a permanent copy. The story has taught him about a few types of bugs, and how to recognize sound effect words.
