SUMMARY: This book presents an illustrated egg with facts on a two page spread. Then when you turn the page, you find out the name of the bird and see it illustrated in its natural habitat along with other animals you might see there.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations were created in ink. They are nicely done and colorful. They are a bit too busy, however, especially for the younger readers.

THE GOOD: This was a fun way to present information about birds. You see the egg first with some facts that may help you guess which bird the egg belongs to. And seeing the birds in their very different habitats was enlightening.
THE NOT AS GOOD: The information was presented as one fat paragraph on each page. It looked pretty in its information "cloud," but for younger readers, it would be easier to read if the facts were spread out with bullets next to each fact. The eggs were all presented as the same size even though they vary greatly in real life. It would have been nice to see the eggs shown on the page in actual size.
