Favorite author/illustrator Ruth Heller, whose many clever nonfiction books make learning science and language concepts easy. Introduces children to egg-laying creatures in this colorful, rhyming extravaganza. Not only birds lay eggs, she explains, but reptiles, amphibians, fish, insects, and various other invertebrates do, too. There are even two mammals in this exclusive club: the spiny anteater and the duckbill platypus. Dispelling the preconception that only moms are responsible for egg welfare, Heller points out such active fathers as the Siamese fighting fish and the seahorse.
