The Jelly Bean Tree by Toni Yuly
This is a simple, cute story for toddlers and preschoolers about a blue giraffe named Jelly Bean. After taking a nap among the trees, Jelly Bean awakens to find that a bird has built a nest and laid eggs on top of her head! The generous and kind-hearted giraffe acts as a tree, standing patiently in the same spot until the eggs hatch. In the meantime, her friends tend to Jelly Bean, bringing her food to eat and flowers to brighten her days. Jelly Bean does such a good job being a tree that when the baby birds hatch and are moved to a real tree, they prefer Jelly Bean’s head! A sweet story of friendship and caring.
