Author: Darrin Lunde

Synopsis: Beautiful pictures and sparse text introduce a variety of types of eggs to young children in the format of a guessing game.
Some books I read to my little children are just plain fun. I received an ecopy of Whose Egg is That? and had it on my iPad. While we were at a camp meeting last week, I read this book to my 7- and 3-year-old daughters one evening to help them relax with the familiar activity of reading together. The next day when I put my little girl down for a nap, she wanted me to read it to her again, and then she wanted to read it herself! She did her best to memorize the text so she could “read” it to me. Both of them loved guessing what each egg was!
Seven very different types of eggs are described in this book. First is a two-page spread with a picture of the egg, the question, “Whose egg is that?” and one sentence of information about it. Then, you turn to another two-page spread which gives the answer to the question and another sentence or two about it. Several of the eggs, of course, belong to birds, but almost half are those of other creatures. At the end of the book is a two-page spread of fun facts about eggs in general. I found these quite interesting; there were some facts I didn’t know!
Whose Egg is That? is a delightful way to learn a little bit about science. This is a perfect book for two- and three-year-olds who love repetition and interactive books. The text is simple but informative, and the pictures are beautiful. Any young animal lover will enjoy this book.
I received a review copy of this book from NetGalley, and these are my honest thoughts about it.
