Eggs 1, 2, 3 Who Will the Babies Be? Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ten spreads with gatefolds and a culminating dramatic fold-out lead young readers from a single penguin egg to an ostrich's clutch of 10 eggs. Song-like, non-rhyming verse gives clues as to who might hatch. The answer to the repeated refrain, "Who will the babies be?", is found beneath a flap. Besides discovering the animal baby or babies, kids will also pick up a lot of nature terminology and interesting facts about animals, their birthing environments, and habitats.

Review:

"Matte cut-paper collages with wood-grain, paper, fabric, and other textures illustrate this nature-themed counting book. On the left-hand pages, words curve above and below large numbers, mimicking the subject matter: eggs and the hatchlings inside, which include newborn platypus, robins, turtles, and more. 'Nine eggs, round and black, safe in shimmering jelly, floating on the pond. Who will the babies be?' reads one spread. Gatefolds open to the right or upward, revealing the answers: '9 frog tadpoles, breathing with feathery gills and swishing finny tails.' Charming and lovingly designed entertainment. Ages 3 — up. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
