Where Do Chicks Come From?
Illustrated by Pam Paparone
HarperCollins Children's Books
Have you ever seen a hen sitting on a nest of eggs? Have you wondered why she is sitting there? That hen is keeping her eggs warm until they are ready to hatch -- into chicks! But before a hen can lay her eggs, many things have to happen. In this simple introduction to the development of a fertilized egg into a chick, young readers are given a glimpse into the secret workings of the egg -- and the growing chick inside.
"Neither flowery nor clinical, Sklansky's straightforward presentation hits just the right note for young children, who will find the details of life inside the egg fascinating."
". . . [C]lear and accurate text . . . . The illustrations are soft and friendly but retain enough realism . . . . This is an enjoyable and informative introduction to scientific information."
