The Rainbow Egg {Book Review}

The Rainbow Egg
by Linda K. Hendricks, M.D. Illustrated by Linda Hendricks

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.


I review for BookLook Bloggers
Disclosure:  I received this ebook for free in return for my honest opinion.




I received this ebook from BookLook Bloggers. I was able to download it right to my kindleHD. As I started reading this book, It came off as very sweet.. However throughout  this book I feel it only shows one side of adoption. For this to be a children's book,  I feel that this would be very hard to understand for the age range this is geared towards. Why wouldn't Hope, the chicken make a nest in the woods for her egg?  Why wouldn't she stay with the egg once she found the hen house? I feel like this book has some unclear answers for adoption.  The illustrations are very colorful and fun throughout the book. I wouldn't recommend this book to someone that trying to explain the process of adoption.
