Tales From Brook Meadow - The Tale of the Fallen Eggs

When Barry the Blue Tit loses the eggs after a windy night, it's good to know there is a meadow full of friends to help out. The two water voles, Wilson and Felicity, first come when they hear Barry's frantic chirp. They swim off to find the mouse twins, Jeremy and Vincent, because they're good at finding things in the meadow. And there's Victor the fox, too, who offers his help. But it's the wily fox who figures out where the eggs must have dropped because Barry's nest hangs over the river bank. So it's up to the water voles to swim, find and retrieve one egg at a time. Even Kye the kingfisher swoops in to help.

Kevin Richardson's Tales From Brook Meadow: The Tale of the Fallen Eggs is a wonderful nature story told with compassion and appreciation for nature, much like Gene Stratton-Porter. Each meadow creature is introduced with care, describing their different attributes. But, first and foremost, is the responsibility each creature bears for one another. This is a story of collaboration, caring, and respect for each other, regardless of their differences. When living creatures of nature can come together to help one another, they share a valuable message to the human world about being a caring creature. The plot develops with precision, accompanied by charming sketches of the natural meadow environment and it's living creatures. This is the first book in a series and I'm sure young readers will be fascinated to read more and learn about the natural world around them.
