Hope is a chicken who happens upon an egg. Looking for a place to help raise it, a guardian red bird leads her to a chicken house full of chicken families. There she finds challenges and fear ultimately leading to the most precious gift she could ever hope for. The Rainbow Egg is a beautifully illustrated, delightful fresh look at adoption as a loving gift.
The Rainbow Egg is a gently written tale of adoption. Although I appreciate the author's delicate handling of such a controversial issue, the book is very wordy. I was unsure of the target audience. The illustrations were very natural except for the occasional bursts of rainbow colors throughout. Overall a decent read.
