Egg: Nature’s Perfect Package
It’s about eggs. I never knew sea urchins lay eggs. Tarantulas lay eggs. The elephant bird egg is bigger than an ostrich egg. The kiwi egg is big, and the kiwi bird is small. The gigantoraptor egg is so long and big. The black-spotted sticky frog lays its eggs in the carnivorous pitcher plant. A cowbird sneaks an egg inside a different bird’s nest. The spider wasp immobilizes a spider and puts its egg on it. A mongoose eats an egg by playing football with it first. A moon snail lays eggs in a half circle. The weedy sea dragon lays eggs on the daddy’s tail, and then the egg hatches and hugs his daddy. The daddy emperor penguin keeps the egg warm in his brood patch. I’d carry eggs in my hands. Some babies have egg teeth to crack open the eggshell. “Hiya! I kicked it!” The kiwi gets out of the egg with his feet. There is more animal information in the back. People who like animal eggs will like this book. The pictures are pretty. Some of the animals look real. My favorite picture is the chicken hatchling. I’d like to be in an egg that has lots of room, like the elephant bird egg.
