By Dianna Hutts Aston; illustrated by Sylvia Long

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.


Recommended by the publisher for readers ages 5-8 years.  Recommended by Nest owners for ~7 years and up.  These books are rich in content.  We find it a lot of facts and information even for an adult.  However, the facts are balanced by the beautiful illustrations and text.
