Eaglet’s world expands from its beginning inside his warm egg, to his safe and sturdy nest, to his flight through the wide, blue sky. At each stage, Eaglet first appreciates his habitat’s safety and security, and then is prodded on to the next course of development as he grows too big for his shell, becomes too crowded in the nest, and, finally, is ready to follow his parents in his first attempt at flight. The text hypothesizes Eaglet’s reaction to each new stage of growth, and his eventual delight in independence. The brief, lyrical narrative accompanies realistic illustrations of a Bald Eagle family in a mountain aerie. (Ages 5-8)
