These are grade A egg stories good for anytime of year, in other worlds, not an Easter Egg book list. (And don't worry, my puns SHELL now come to an end!) Enjoy…
Follow that egg! Roly-Poly Egg by Kali Stileman is a simple book for tots all about bright, bold, egg chasing fun! With a surprise flap at the end!
Foxy and Egg is just the cutest! Foxy invites the egg in thinking she'll fatten him up and enjoy a delicious breakfast…turns out eggs aren't always as they seem! I love love love the ending of this book!
How about the original Duck & Goose! In their debut story by Tad Hills, our feathered friends have found an egg and each wants to claim it for his own. Despite the quarreling at first, they end up having a ball-- literally-- they find out the egg is actually a ball!
Remember how much my kids like The Cow That Laid an Egg by Andy Cutbill? The chickens who want to help their friend, the cow with unconditional love for an egg, the quirk sweet illustrations! Its a good egg…book!!
In Zinnia and Dot by Lisa Campbell Ernst, we meet two proud mother hens who love nothing more than bragging about their eggs, but when their bragging gets out of hand a weasel jumps into the hen house, snatching all the eggs but one…will they be able to work together and help this little egg hatch?
And then there's Elephant and Piggie at their very best in There Is a Bird On Your Head! by Mo Willems. It's a modern day classic. Birds building a life (including laying and hatching three eggs) on the head of an elephant… it doesn't get better than that.
Last but not least, Green Eggs and Ham!! What egg book list would be complete without this? Do you like it on our list, now I hope you get the just. We like this book here or there! Well, we like it anywhere!
