Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Emily Schuster
It's not just chickens--almost all animals lay eggs, including birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, insects and other invertebrates. In this clever book, we learn that the octopus hangs its eggs in pearl-like strings attached to rocks, and that the spider wraps its eggs in silk. We learn that not all eggs are round--stingrays' eggs look like mermaid's purses. Active fathers, like the seahorse and the Siamese fighting fish, are included as well as two unusual egg-laying mammals, the spiny anteater and the duckbill platypus. Although the biological concepts and detailed drawings are advanced enough to teach even parents a thing or two, the rhymes and bright colors give this book definite kid appeal. Heller even manages to introduce words like "oviporous" and "mammalia" (which she rhymes with "Australia," of course) without seeming too pretentious or inaccessible. 1999 (orig.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-- Bright, colorful illustrations of birds, reptiles, fish, and insects appear in two - page spreads , showing that chickens aren't the only animals that lay eggs. This excellent translation is sure to appeal to beginning readers.
