sweet board book- touching while also bright and interesting for kids

This rather chunky board book (there are other editions) is very sweet! Dora the hen is very proud of her first clutch of eggs. Then, as she visits friends in the barnyard, she wonders if her eggs are so special after all. All the other lively animal babies seem so special, versus her still round eggs. At the end of the book her eggs hatch into adorable chicks, and she feels her babies are the BEST. The only goofy aspect of this book is that, of course, broody hens must stay "setting" on their eggs to keep them warm, with just a brief break each day. It might have been nice to incorporate that into the story, but since this book is for toddlers, few people will care. :) A nice book which teaches that animals have feelings, too. Adorable illustrations parents and children will enjoy.

My daughter loves it!

The pictures are bright and the language simple and repetitive which make this book a favorite with my three-year-old daughter. Initially, we checked it out from the library, (she picked it out) and cried when we had to return it. She still mentions it and I am ordering it for her own library.

Dora's Eggs

This book covers a range of emotions as first-time-mom, Dora, a hen, is disappointed that no other amimal moms want to see her eggs, then saddened to tears when her eggs crack, then delighted and proud as her chicks become everything she could ever want. Delightful illustrations. Wonderful introduction of farm animals to city children.
