First the Egg

First the Egg
Seeger, Laura Vaccaro (Author, Illustrator)

WHICH CAME FIRST? The chicken or the egg? Simple die-cuts magically present transformation - from seed to flower, tadpole to frog, caterpillar to butterfly. The acclaimed author of Black? White! Day? Night! and Lemons Are Not Red gives an entirely fresh and memorable presentation to the concepts of transformation and creatiity. Seed becomes flower, paint becomes picture, word becomes story - and the commonplace becomes extraordinary as children look through and turn the pages of this novel and winning book. First the Egg is a 2008 Caldecott Honor Book and a 2007 New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year.

A picture book about transformations.
