A new egg has just arrived, and Little Pip’s parents are so excited! Little Pip doesn’t understand what all the fuss is about—it seems like all anyone cares about is that boring old egg. Still, when danger strikes, Pip learns to help as much as she can. After a long, harsh winter, the egg finally cracks open, and Pip is thrilled to meet her baby brother, Sam, for the very first time! Lyrical text and charming illustrations illuminate this heartwarming exploration of the uncertainties children experience as their families expand.
