Featuring more than 20 animals - including a penguin, a tortoise, and even a slug - this book documents the moment of hatching step by step. Learn how birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and invertebrates hatch from their eggs, as well as what happens inside an egg's shell. See the biggest egg in the world hatching, find out which animals have jellylike eggs, and which animals' egg cases are known as 'mermaids' purses'. With expert information and jaw-dropping photography, 'The Egg Book' is the ideal gift for any child with a love of nature and baby animals.
