Am I Yours?
by Alex Latimer
Two hundred million years ago, in the age of dinosaurs, a great wind pushed an egg out of its nest. It rolled far down the hill until it landed in the valley. No one stopped to claim the egg, so the dino inside the egg started asking, “Excuse me, please, but am I yours? One by one each dinosaur asked if it had body parts that matched his or her own body parts, long neck, three horns, a crest, etc. Until the sun sets…and they see its profile and they know exactly who the egg belongs to.
This story seems to speak to that part of a child that wants to know it belongs. A lovely story.
