Eggs


EGGS; Marilyn Singer, illustrated by Emma Stevenson; New York: Holiday House, 2008. 32pgs.
Pretty much everything you wanted to know about eggs, in general, you can find out in this lovely picture book: fish eggs, bullfrog eggs, flamingo eggs, praying mantis eggs, potter wasp eggs, and so on, are described as to color, texture, camouflage characteristics, parental proclivities, and setting (where are the nests, and how are they built?). Interesting, accessible text combines with beautiful pictures (this is Stevenson's first book!) to create a sure bet for nature lovers of all ages.
