This book was right up my niece's alley. She loves non-fiction books, and she loves nature, so An Egg Is Quiet was something very enjoyable for her. She and I particularly enjoyed that this book showed eggs from birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and even from insects, and she was very impressed with the page that showed the development of a chicken, grasshopper, and salmon embryo. She even took the time to try to educate her little brother about that, but unfortunately, he wasn't in the mood to be educated today. Both children and I enjoyed the first page that showed the eggs of various animals, and the final page that showed pictures of the creatures that hatch out of those eggs. It was fun to try to match the egg to the creature, and it was fun to pick out our favorite eggs and our favorite creatures!
