Description of this Book

A humorous and insightful picture book, the story shows kids how kiwi parents job-share the hatching of their chicks. Relative to their size, female kiwi produce one of the largest eggs in the world, and, after hatching, they are so exhausted they need to leave and rebuild their strength. This is when the male parent steps in. His important job is to sit on the nest for around 80 days until the chick hatches. With stunning illustrations to match her delightful story, Heather Hunt has produced another classic book about one of our best-loved birds.
