Award-winning artist Sylvia Long has teamed with
up-and-coming author Dianna Aston to create this gorgeous and informative
introduction to eggs. From tiny hummingbird eggs to giant ostrich eggs, oval
ladybug eggs to tubular dogfish eggs, gooey frog eggs to fossilized dinosaur
eggs, it magnificently captures the incredible variety of eggs and celebrates
their beauty and wonder.
The evocative text is sure to inspire lively questions and observations. Yet while poetic in voice and elegant in design, the book introduces children to more than 60 types of eggs and an interesting array of egg facts. Even the endpapers brim with information. A tender and fascinating guide that is equally at home being read to a child on a parent's lap as in a classroom reading circle.
