The Secret of the Egg
An egg is the form that so many creatures are born from, but there are so many different kinds of egg!
Red, white, blue, speckled, squishy, tiny, smooth or as big as a football, eggs can be found in all types of amazing places, from under the sand, in the sea, in a nest in a tree, or balancing on daddy's feet. Finally, when the eggs are ready to hatch, they reveal the secret they have been carefully protecting all this time.
Part of a series of rhyming nonfiction picture books ideal for 3-6s, The Secret of the Egg joins Into The Blue, Animal Surprises and The Word Bird in presenting accurate information about a variety of elements of the natural world in a fun and dynamic format.
Davies' rhymes are fun and bouncy, giving lots of interesting facts that kids are bound to remember. There's a fun little puzzle at the end, too.
