Okay, so upon reading Laura Vaccaro Seeger’s “First the Egg”, you may say “That’s it?” Honestly, I had the same thought when I first read this book…until I discovered the fun in it. At the nursery school, my kids learned a lot from this book. It helps them to cognitively understand the sequence of events; for example: “First the tadpole, and then the frog!” After the children became more familiar with the book, I allowed them to answer in unison what would come next.
“First the Egg” made some of my most quietest students yell out loud; this was so pleasant to see. So, this is why I love this book so much–definitely in my top 10 favorites as far as children’s books go.
NIFTY CRAFT ALERT:
Really want to make your kids feel smart? Try photo copying the pages and cut out the featured items. Then, have the children glue them on a piece of construction paper in order. They can decorate the project afterwards with crayons and pom-poms if they want.
