An Egg Is Quiet

An Egg Is Quiet Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Award-winning artist Sylvia Long has teamed with up-and-coming author Dianna Aston to create this gorgeous and informative introduction to eggs. From tiny hummingbird eggs to giant ostrich eggs, oval ladybug eggs to tubular dogfish eggs, gooey frog eggs to fossilized dinosaur eggs, it magnificently captures the incredible variety of eggs and celebrates their beauty and wonder.

The evocative text is sure to inspire lively questions and observations. Yet while poetic in voice and elegant in design, the book introduces children to more than 60 types of eggs and an interesting array of egg facts. Even the endpapers brim with information. A tender and fascinating guide that is equally at home being read to a child on a parent's lap as in a classroom reading circle.

Synopsis:

Why do you pick up a snail shell and think its beautiful? and#12288;Why does that shape occur in nature over and over again and#8212; in rushing rivers, in a flower bud, even inside your ear? Spirals and#8212; bold and beautiful, are simple but exquisite,and#160; familiar but mysterious — are everywhere.and#160;

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; With simplicity and grace, Krommes and Sidman not only reveal the many spirals in nature — from fiddleheads to elephant tusks, from crashing waves to spiraling galaxies — but also celebrate

the beauty and usefulness of this fascinating shape.
