Egg Theme Books

Here are the books we used for our Egg Theme.

We also used the book The Egg, a First Discovery Book by Scholastic that I LOVE. It has a 5 star rating as well, for good reason.

It has transparent pages that show the development of the embryo inside the egg. This book also shows how eggs develop in the hen and introduces the different animals that lay eggs. It's not as thorough in that aspect as An Egg is Quiet or Chickens Aren't the Only Ones, but I like this one for an introduction and a discussion about eggs, leading the next day into a more thorough discussion on the different animals that lay eggs.

Our chickies left for the farm this morning. We already miss them. The children got a few last cuddles in and said goodbye.
