Describes what happens day-by-day for the three weeks from the time a hen lays an egg until the baby chick hatches.
PreS-Gr 2-Sklansky's clear and accurate text begins with fertilization when the rooster's "sperm joins the growing egg" and concludes with the dry, fluffy baby. She uses the correct terminology to discuss the anatomy of the egg and the purpose of each part. She also explains that the "egg you eat for breakfast" is unfertilized and cannot grow into a chick. As the hen sits on her nest for the 21-day incubation period, the day-to-day development of the embryonic chick is detailed in easy-to-understand paragraphs and full-color drawings. The illustrations are soft and friendly, but retain enough realism for children to understand the subject matter. Suggested activities and a list of stories about chicks are appended. This is an enjoyable and informative introduction to scientific information.-Carolyn Janssen, Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton County, OH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
