Why fit in when you were born to stand out? When a storm separates a young eagle from his family, he takes up residence with a group of chickens. Poking fun at his crooked beak, the way he flaps his wings, and his white feathered head, the eagle is ashamed and embarrassed. Soon, he discovers even more differences. Unlike the frightened chickens, he does not fear the sly fox. While the chickens are happy to live on the ground, he yearns to fly. Although the rooster insists that he was born to keep his feet on the ground, the sight of two soaring eagles changes everything. From this delightful tale listeners learn to reach out for their full potential and let their spirits fly. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carl Sommer.
