Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2—Eggs that do not come in stock sizes suited to specially designed cartons at the supermarket (no matter what the kids think) can be fascinating in their infinite variety. For each different kind of ova, Posada presents a clue-filled verse, a teasing fragment of a watercolor collage, and the universal question about what is developing inside the featured egg. A quick flip of the page reveals the answer with a full-blown illustration and an informative paragraph on the featured creature. (Yes, a purist might carp on being told the spider spun her egg case "with her eight long legs" with nary a mention of spinnerets, but spiders do use their legs to distribute the spun silk, so never mind.) The text is brief and to the point, and the charming collages generate Waldo-like searches for a clue to parental identity. Final pages present the eggs in question in their actual sizes and a step-by-step visualization of the miraculous changes inside a duck egg from the 4th to the 26th day. For a tighter focus, think of titles like Martin Jenkins's The Emperor's Egg (1999), Ruth Horowitz's Crab Moon (2000, both Candlewick) or Dianna Aston's luminous An Egg Is Quiet (Chronicle, 2006). Attractive, informative, and fun for the younger set.—Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY

From Booklist

This attractive picture book presents six animals that hatch from eggs: penguins, alligators, ducklings, sea turtles, spiders, and octopuses. Each appears on a pair of double-page spreads. The first spread is a guessing game, telling a little about the animal in two rhymed couplets, showing a close-up of an egg in its natural setting, and asking "Can you guess what is growing inside this egg?" The next spread reveals the answer to the riddle and offers information about the featured animal's physical attributes and behaviors. Distinctive collage-and-watercolor artwork offers eye-catching views of the animals within their habitats. Back matter includes a spread showing the actual sizes of the eggs in the book and another showing a cross-sectional view of a duck developing within an egg. With its playful use of a questions-and-answer structure to engage children, this will be a good read-aloud choice for egg-related science units in the primary grades. Carolyn Phelan

Used this book in a first grade classroom study of eggs, nests and oviparous animals.

Since our oldest (4 year old) is very much into eggs, we bought him this book.

This is a cute 32 page book for ages 4 to 8 years old features simple rhymes that are easy for kids to guess. The illustrations are drawn well and there is plenty of things to use for counting, colors, letters and more.

As an elementary teacher, I love thematic units and this book is an excellent nonfiction book concerning animals that grow inside eggs. The author presents a clue about a certain animal that grows inside an egg, which allows readers to guess what the animal is. Then the author gives factual information about this animal and how the egg is important to that animal. I love to use this book around Easter with my unit on eggs. It is also a great book to help readers see the different species of animals whose young develop and grow in eggs.

Since our oldest (4 year old) is very much into eggs, we bought him this book. He loves it! It is set up in a way he likes. You see the eggs and you can wonder what's inside. A nice riddle is written next to it. On the next page you see what came out of the egg with some information about the animal. Even I learned something! The book has beautiful painted pictures and gives good information in an accessible way. And I must say even our 2 year old wants to read the book of the egg now. He probably does not completely understand the explanation, but he likes to see the pictures of the egg en what comes out of them.

A great book to pair with Eggs 1 2 3! Rhymed sections introduce eggs and ask kids to guess what's growing inside. Then you turn the page to see the answer AND read a prose passage giving more information. I love the mix of rhyme and prose.
