About this title


Just in time for Easter and springtime, here is a gorgeously illustrated picture book filled with fascinating facts about eggs. Many creatures, including amphibians, reptiles, insects, birds, and even some mammals, lay eggs. Eggs come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and textures, from jelly-covered bullfrog eggs that float to stringy octopus eggs that hang beneath sea ledges. Animals protect their eggs in special ways too. Seahorse eggs are carried in the father's pouch, while Asian cave swiftlet eggs stay safe in a nest made of spit. As different as they are from one another, all eggs contain a special world, a place where a developing embryo can breathe, grow, and be nourished. Extraordinary facts abound in this intriguingly written and intricately illustrated picture book about the varied appearances, development processes, environments, and survival challenges of eggs.
