EGG, My Little World

There’s an egg hunt on the way in this little novelty board book for babies and toddlers. A great find for this easter weekend!
We join Bunny and her friends in an exciting Easter egg hunt where there’s lots of lovely patterned and spotty eggs to be found by Lamb, Puppy, Kitten, Pony, and Bluebird. When all the eggs have been found, they’re all put into a pile when one by one, some cracks appear. CHEEP! Little chicks hatch from the eggs, a lovely end to this sweet book.
Each egg has a cut out center to allow little fingers to turn pages and explore the book by themselves. The illustrations are bright and colourful with a cute baby animal on each new page spread. There’s a cheerful rhyming story which works well with the sweet illustrations.
My daughter, who is now 10 months old, enjoyed opening this book up using the egg shaped holes and feeling the area where the other cut out eggs were. Aoife is now at the stage of wanting to open and close books herself and often feels pages, looking for the area that may have different surfaces or patting the animal characters. This held her attention for quite a few minutes by herself.
