5.0 étoiles sur 5Perfectly perfect children's book1 mai 2013
Par Nathan Webster - Publié sur Amazon.com
"Hank Finds an Egg" is a sweet and adorable book built around a series of miniatures and close-focus photography, and is ideal for young children. The wordless narrative works as a short, cute story that will keep the child engaged with the photography and funny characters.
The book shows once again that live-action figures beat out CGI every time. Granted, this isn't a movie, but even a small child will know when they're looking at something 'real' vs. something computer-generated, no matter how supposedly lifelike. I think the real-life depth to the book's characters will keep a child's interest and I believe they'll invest with what they see as a 'real world.'
For adults, the all-picture story might be a little simple, with nothing to read along with. but I think any age can appreciate the strong workmanship that went into each of the book's 'characters.' Children will focus on the fantasy element, while adults will appreciate the effort involved, and can study the pictures for new details each time.
Great children's book, and a unique production that is very uncommon in the computer age.

5.0 étoiles sur 5This is a beautiful story and a beautiful book!3 juin 2013

I was at Book Expo America this past weekend, waiting to watch Neal Gaiman speak, when I had a nice conversation with Rebecca Dudley who was sitting next to the empty chair I had the lucky happenstance of being able to find.
In this conversation, I had the privilege of seeing the book "Hank Finds an Egg."
The story is beautiful. The art work is beautiful. I have seen few books with words that can tell a story with more emotion and completeness than Rebecca Dudley has accomplished with this wonderful book. Hand Finds an Egg teaches a great lesson about the benefits of altruism, and caring for others, even those you have just met. We need more stories like this in the world.
I would recommend this book without hesitation for anyone who loves beautiful art, or for anyone who has a young child.

My Thoughts- This book has no words, just detailed photos of a bear named Hank who finds an egg and goes on an adventure to find where is came from. The photographs are of a forest scene made with what looks like felt, clay and other materials that can be used in small scale models.
My 7 year old loved reading this book to her little sister. With no words she was able to use her imagination to tell the story the way she sees it. Each time she has "read" it she adds more and more details to the story. I love seeing her be creative with her story telling. My kids love the photos and want a Hank stuffie for their bedroom. Something else I love about this story is it shows Hank struggling with the dilemma to get the egg back to it's home and how he doesn't give up and tries different ideas. That is such a positive message for my kids.
I would recommend this book to anyone who works with kids or has kids. It will spur their imagination. We look forward to more books done by Rebecca Dudley.
