Book Sharing - The Odd Egg
Yes, we love Emily Gravett. Subtle but familiar, even the grown ups will smile at the ending. Duck is sad that he doesn't have an egg, until he finds one...This is my favorite illustration. Duck is knitting in some of the early pictures, and I love LOVE that his "baby" is now wearing the handknits. The word above them, the camera didn't pick up well, is "mama"! :)Morgan has this book ten times in a row if she can get away with it. When the egg hatches, that's her favorite page. She walks around all day reciting, "creak, crack, SNAP!" Love this pre-schooler. Love her loving this book.
