Book Review: Hunwick's Egg

We read Elijah a story at bed time every night. He has so many books! We love reading to him and he really seems to enjoy it too. We've recently collected the the mini-books that came for $1.80 with the Telegraph. They are so lovely and I've really loved reading them to Elijah.

Having all of these new books gave me an idea; book reviews!

Tonight I read Hunwick's Egg:

"When a mysterious egg appears outside Hunwick's burrow, no one is certain what to think. And when it doesn't hatch right away, everyone is even more bewildered. Everyone, that is, but Hunwick. For Hunwick understands the egg. It is his friend. And he is the only one who knows its secret."

I often tear up when reading to Elijah. Don't ask me why, I have no clue!  Tonight's story was no different and made me choke up a little. Written by fantastic Australian Author Mem Fox With stunning Australiana styled illustrations by Pamela Lofts, this is a gorgeous book, with the moral of unconditional love. Such an important thing to teach our children.

I will definitely be reading this to Elijah many more times as he gets older and would absolutely recommend it :)
