Eggby Shelley Gill, Jo-Ellen Bosson
The Hindu people believed that the world was created when a cosmic egg split in two and Brahma made the heavens out of one half and the earth out of the other. That explanation may have been inspired by the observation that many creatures hatch from eggs. In THE EGG, learn about the many different ways creatures produce eggs and how the young emerge from them. Told with as much wit as fact, this egg-citing story will captivate readers of all ages.
Brilliant, precise illustrations with a touch of whimsy show the story of the egg from its earliest days in the deep oceans over three billion years ago, to birds' nests and animals that carry their eggs inside their bodies today. This fascinating book explores the myths and realities of the egg-straordinary egg.
