EGG is a cute and simple board book that primarily focuses on the illustrations. The story begins with four eggs, each of a different color- pink, yellow, blue, and green. The pink, yellow, and blue eggs hatch and birds come out. The green egg remains. The birds return to listen and then peck-peck-peck on the green egg. Soon, it also hatches, and an alligator arrives. The birds are surprised and fly away. The alligator is alone, sad, and lonely. The birds soon return and are friends with the alligator.

Told in several multipanel pages with simple colors and designs, this book is ideal for the youngest of readers. There are very few words in the book and many are repeated. The story primarily happens in the images. In terms of the images themselves, they are simple but lovely and convey the overall message very well.

What I loved: This simple book turns pages quickly and appeals to the youngest readers who will enjoy the brevity of words and modest images. The story is a sweet one of animals who were eggs together and grow up to be friends. The repetitiveness of the words within the book also appeals to older infants and young toddlers, who will enjoy the overall simplicity. With some extra context of emotions (sad/lonely to friends/happy), this is a great book for young learners.

Final verdict: This minimalistic book is perfect for the youngest readers who turn pages quickly and love looking at pictures. The overall story is adorable and easy to follow, making it a quick and delightful read for parents to share with their little ones. I would recommend for older infants and very young toddlers who are just beginning to get into books.
