A beautiful book that really shows and tells about eggs and can be used in school during discussions of birds and/or comparing of animals that hatch from eggs. It gives a fine perspective on different types of eggs and animals that hatch. A great read for one on one time and in a larger group - lends itself to this setting, too.

I discovered this book when I was looking for one for our kindergarten class. We have been studying eggs and what things come from eggs. The pictures were beautiful and gave the children much to look at and compare. It could be simple picture gazing for non-readers or reading for beginners or those learning cursive. We enjoyed the book so much I purchased another for my nieces and nephews for Easter.

What a gorgeous book! And just in time for Easter! From the concise text to the colorful illustrations, this book holds my daughters attenion while teaching us both a thing or two. The naturalistic and realistic approach of the pictures was a refreshing change from the cartoon character filled world that is often pushed on children. We are egggstatic about this eggcellent book!
