Two Speckled Eggs by Jennifer K. Mann -- ADVISABLE

 Mann, Jennifer K. Two Speckled Eggs. PICTURE BOOK. Candlewick Press, 2014. $14.99. Content: G.

Ginger wants to invite every girl in her class to her birthday party...except Lyla Browning. Lyla is weird. She does her own thing, and doesn't talk much, and doesn't seem to care what others think.  But as Ginger's party progresses, she and Lyla discover they're more alike than they could have anticipated. This story of unlikely friendship is a good reminder that, in judging someone by their appearance, you may be missing out on a potential friend.

EL (K-3) -- ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Caryn
