Chickens Aren't the Only Ones (Ruth Heller's World of Nature) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a concise and lively rhyming text, celebrated author and artist Ruth Heller introduces readers to a remarkably diverse group of egg-laying animals and explains their unique behavior in Chickens Aren't the Only Ones. Rich, memorable spreads depict eggs of every shape and size in brilliant detail, along with the amazing animals that lay them. This original and thoughtful look at nature is sure to delight as naturally as it teaches. Ruth Heller's celebrated World of Nature series also includes Animals Born Alive and Well, The Reason for a Flower, and Plants That Never Ever Bloom.

Review:

"Although the biological concepts and detailed drawings are advanced enough to teach even parents a thing or two, the rhymes and bright colors give this book definite kid appeal." Children's Literature

Review:

"A highly original book, on the improbable subject of eggs...Simple enough for three-year-olds, and complex enough for those considerably older." The New Yorker

Review:

"Bold, bright illustrations complement the informative text...A touch of humor and rhyme leave youngsters with a wealth of information — and an impressive new vocabulary word." The Mailbox

Synopsis:

Ruth Heller's prose and pictures are the perfect means for discovering the variety of oviparous animals and their unique ways of laying eggs.
