Hello, I'm Here!

By Helen Frost
Illustrated by Rick Lieder

A poetic text and wonderfully intimate photographs follow a newborn sandhill crane as it takes its first steps into the world.

Will my legs hold me? What if I fall? Peek in as a sandhill crane hatchling makes its first wobbly stand and takes its first steps alongside its brother. With their parents close by, they flap their wings and dance before enjoying a buggy treat. Someday they will fly with the majestic cranes overhead, but for now, Mama’s soft feathers beckon. With a lyrical narrative and lovely photo illustrations, this latest venture from an acclaimed creative team makes a perfect new baby gift — and will appeal to bird lovers, too.

  • A new collaboration from the award-winning team of poet Helen Frost and photographer Rick Lieder, geared to an even younger picture book audience.
  • Featuring stunning photographs of a sandhill crane family as they welcome their newest hatchling into the world.
  • The engaging, entertaining poem about a young crane's first day of life is perfectly pitched for toddlers.
