The Miracle by Laurie Cockerell
A full-color children’s book filled with delightful photographs, “The Miracle” tells the sweet story of a young girl who finds a little blue speckled egg in the roots of an old oak tree. A conversation with her mother helps the girl learn about the value and sanctity of life, even before the baby is born. Specially written for children ages 5-10 years. (paperback)

“See the mother bird? She knows something is missing. Even a mother bird knows that her job is to protect and care for her baby. She takes her job very seriously. Before she lays her eggs, she carefully prepares a nest. She chooses the safest spot she can find, protected up high from the wind and other animals. She builds a nest that is cushy and soft – the perfect spot for delicate little eggs.” ……
“But when I was that tiny, how could you love me? Wasn’t I just like a little bubble? I didn’t look like a baby when I was that small, did I?”
