Beautiful, whimsical, and entertaining, this book of illustrations by Britta Teckentrup shows eggs in all their fragility, complexity, and variety. Is there anything as simple as an egg? Is there anything as complex? In this gorgeous picture book, Britta Teckentrup portrays eggs through the eyes of an artist. From hummingbirds to the extinct elephant bird, illustrations of the avian world’s smallest and largest eggs demonstrate the variety present in nature. Pastel studies explore the rainbow of soft colors and intricate patterns that make eggs of common birds seem incredibly striking. In Teckentrup’s hands, a scattering of broken egg shells become abstract art; a nest of unhatched eggs suggest the possibility and promise of life. Her studies of songbirds and nests are themselves beautifully composed works of color and line. A lovely meditation on the diversity of eggs, this magnificent book offers hours of lingering pleasure, and becomes fertile ground for conversation and imagination.

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that humans are not the only inhabitants of Earth. This visually striking book reminds us that not only do we share an ecosystem with other living things, but that we can also learn much from the behavior and instincts of our animal neighbors. In Pablo Salvaje’s handcrafted, softly colored prints readers encounter a wide range of creatures— from jellyfish and peacocks to polar bears and snakes. With chapters on love, survival, change, habitat, water, and other topics, this book takes readers on a journey across the planet to show how animals, like humans, form bonds, engage in rivalries, adapt their behavior to cope with challenges, and do anything to protect their offspring. A beautiful lesson in compassion, this book carries a universal message that readers young and old will appreciate and return to again and again.
