Overview

Kids who like animals will love ANIMAL EGGS! Discover amazing colors and dozens of shapes and sizes—pink, yellow, orange, red, purple eggs, spotted eggs, speckled eggs, see-through eggs, and so many more. Explore dozens of wild and wonderful ways animals protect their eggs: male fish that protect hundreds of eggs in their mouths, female turtles that make elaborate nests on seashores, and female spiders that spin a silk ball around their eggs and carry the ball with them everywhere. Marvel at the surprising places some animals lay their eggs—in fruit, on the bodies of other animals, and even in dog poop!—so the baby animals have food to eat from the minute they hatch. Features a dazzling variety of animals, including snakes, amphibians, insects, spiders, crustaceans, fish, birds, and even mammals, all in four-color photography. Includes glossary and index.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2–5—This engaging book shows the diversity in color, size, and shape of animals' eggs, and explains the laying behaviors of a large number of creatures. Three to four sharply reproduced images from photo archives appear on each spread, and they are clear and informative. The authors' conversational style includes some humorous headers and smoothly written basic bits of information that set each creature apart: reptiles, amphibians, fish, birds, mammals, celaphopods, spiders, and insects. The organizational scheme serves browsers well as a means to whet interest; the eggs are grouped by shapes, sizes, colors, guarders, stealers, shelters, and more. The last section, "Whose Egg Is This?" poses the question above five photographs to see whether readers can identify which animal laid it. The combination of basic information and high-quality photography will enable children to answer correctly.—Nancy Call, Santa Cruz Public Libraries, Aptos, CA

    Filled with Surprises

    My son's school librarian suggested this book book to him last week and he has read it at least a dozen times. He's now a "teacher," surprising me with all sorts of info. I highly recommend it. And his little brother is fascinated with the pictures.
