Hello everyone! Today, our book was What Will Hatch?, written by Jennifer Ward and illustrated by Susie Ghahremani. This peek-through book takes a look at all the different creatures that lay and hatch from eggs, called oviparous animals. Each page features an egg and a few short rhyming words to describe the creature inside, with the animal’s reveal on the next page (there is also a small peek-through cutout in the shape of each egg leading to the next page). At the end, there is a nonfiction section that lists the animals and their gestation times inside an egg, which was a nice touch.
This is a nice and straightforward book about egg-laying creatures. The minimal text makes it good for very young readers, and also makes it a great length for baby bookworms like JJ. The folk-art is very cute, simple and colorful for little nature-lovers. Overall, a perfectly nice book. Baby Bookworm approved!
