Eggs, eggs, eggs everyone wants eggs! But do they want the same kinds of eggs? NO! Some prefer scrambled, some like fried, and some even want them raw.
The only thing the hungry customers at this bustling diner seem to have in common is a desire for "TWO EGGS, PLEASE!"
At the heart of this clever new look at similarities and differences by acclaimed author Sarah Weeks and Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator Betsy Lewin is an age-old truth it's what's inside that counts.

Two eggs, please is a look at the many different ways to prepare the very same food, as everyone in a diner orders eggs. This was a clever book. I never though of all the different ways to order eggs. Even though I am not a big fan of eggs, this book really made me want some.
This book is about eggs. Everyone wants it served differently, raw, over-easy, scramble, etc. It all turns out different, but in fact, it is actually all the same.
All sorts of different animals come in ordering two eggs: sunnyside up, boiled, scrambled, etc. They are all different but the same. Very minimal text.
Great illustrations with lots for kids to notice. Rythmic sounding text makes for a great read-alound. Nice message about how were all different in some ways and the same in some ways. Nice look into the NY City diner scene. My four kids (boys and girls) have gotten a lot of mileage out of this one.
