Hatching a plan for survival isn’t always easy in the wild. And how animals lay, protect, and even use each other's eggs as a food source help reveal the life cycle of the natural world. Eggs come in all shapes and sizes. The ostrich’s is the largest, but some are so small, you need a microscope to spot them. Animals hide them and disguise them in smart and surprising ways, too. Some abandon their eggs, while others protect them fiercely and carry them wherever they go. There are as many kinds of eggs as there are animals that depend on them, because in the animal kingdom, the fight for survival begins with the simple, but extraordinary, egg.

Steve JenkinsandRobin Page live in Boulder, Colorado. This is the fifteenth book they have written together. Other books they have hatched include the Caldecott Honor Award winnerWhat Do You Do with a Tail Like This?, the New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Book Move!,andCreature Features: 25 Animals Explain Why They Look the Way They Do.Visit their website atwww.stevejenkinsbooks.com.
