In the middle of the night, Baby Bird rolls over and falls out of her warm, cozy nest. Sleeping Mama Bird is too far away to hear her baby’s cries for help. And poor Baby Bird’s wings are not yet strong enough to fly. What is she to do? Then Baby Bird meets Little Frog. And with a bit of help from her new friend, Baby Bird discovers she can do more than she ever imagined.
