Description

What will peck and poke, and swim, or fly, or wobble out of each egg? Ten spreads with gatefolds and a dramatic fold-out finale lead young readers from a single penguin egg to an ostrich's clutch of ten. Throughout, kids expand their grasp of nature - animals who hatch from eggs, their birthing environments, and what they're like when newly hatched.
