~~'Indeed'....an outstanding book....~~
Reviewed in the United States on February 11, 2020
This was written for ages 4 to 8 and grades P to 3. The illustrations are well done and accompany the text. A most interesting story about what eggs do on the weekend when the store is closed. Who knew? Spoilers do follow!
Shel, an egg, for some reason was left behind in the carton when the other 11 went off to play games ...and eventually hide in the store. At the beginning she was content to be by herself as she enjoyed the peace and quiet. But, as time went on, her stress level increased when the others didn't come back at lunch. Decisions, decisions, decisions...Should Shel go or stay?
The younger ones will be able to recognize items sold in the store including potatoes, tomatoes, avocados...a teaching lesson for the parents in the event the children are not familiar with these items.
I really liked that all of the eggs helped each other look for Meg, the missing one...A clue was followed and teamwork helped .... It is always so nice to play with friends, isn't it?
All of the eggs had cute names, too.. thought that was a cute addition to the text. 'Indeed' an outstanding book...
Most highly recommended ...an enjoyable read with lessons throughout the text.
