Toddler-PreS–This creative board book introduces young readers to bird eggs with different shapes, colors, and designs. Realistic illustrations are in watercolor and pencil, and each page has one large picture. In most cases there are two words underneath. For example, the text “Tiny Egg” is next to an illustration of a very small egg. It is the perfect amount of information to teach very young children about science. Back matter includes illustrations of the 13 different eggs featured and has the name of the bird below. This title introduces STEM concepts in an appealing way for young children. It will whet their appetite to learn more about the world around them. Readers might even see some eggs representing the kind of birds that live in their neighborhood. Adult readers may be inspired to pick up a bird book to learn more.
VERDICT Highly recommended for public and school libraries. This board book will spark curiosity in children and adults, too.
