A pair of Herons spend each day singing a sweet song over their eggs. When a strong wind blows the parents far from their nest, their three little eggs are left alone. 


With a tremble and a crack the eggs hatch. “Where’s our Mama? Where’s our Papa?” the little hatchlings ask.


 Although the baby birdies don’t know what their parents look like, they do remember the song that they sang.


“Whoever sings our song will be our Mama and Papa.” 


Bravely, the baby birds set off across the island searching for the ones who can sing their special song. 


A retelling of an old Cuban folktale told with lyrical refrains and stunning illustrations. Children will be delighted to sing along as they accompany the  baby Herons on their journey to find their parents.
