The basic premise of the book Flap Your Wings is that a boy accidentally put an alligator egg in Mr. and Mrs. Bird's empty nest. They decide to hatch it because it is in their nest. When it hatches, they decide to raise it.
"What kind of bird eats so much?" said Mrs. Bird.And that is what it is like to feed a newborn. It never stops, and you just do it.
"It doesn't matter," said Mr. Bird.
"He's still hungry and we have to feed him."
Weeks went by.
Junior never stopped eating.
And he never stopped growing.
