    Another winner by the stellar Kevin Henkes. The story is adorable and the artwork is magnificent, happy and warm. Typical Henkes. Henkes describes Egg as a graphic novel. It is aimed at the youngest readers who will be enchanted by it. 5 bright and shiny stars!

    Pretty damn delightful. It really IS a graphic novel for preschoolers. I think this could really go far in a little kids story time.

    Just looking at the cover you get Kevin Henkes' wonderful sense of caring and compassion. The book opens with 4 eggs, waiting to hatch. Three do with sweet chicks out and about almost immediately say good-bye but wait, one egg remains. The chicks come back, find a surprise and new friends are made. Simple, soft pastel colors, pinks, yellows, blues, greens, simple language repeated 3 or 4 times a page, all add to the success of the story and the joy of the read. I love the page that describes wai

I love the page that describes waiting with 16 images with that one word and the egg......perfect.

    Gorgeous, masterful and absolutely perfect for the toddler-preschool set - and old librarians too. I was bewitched by this one.

    There's not even any real sentences in this book, it is for babies.

    The basic plot is that there are four eggs of different colors. Three of them hatch, but the green egg remains unchanged.

    The birds peck open the egg (which I think is a bad idea - what if the animal inside wasn't ready to come out?) to reveal it is an alligator egg. They fly away, afraid of the alligator, but the baby alligator is

    , so the bird's come back and be its friends. They ride on the alligato

    THE END.

    Kevin Henkes is pretty famous. You might have read some of his other books, like

    Tl;dr - Cute book for very young children - babies.
