Peep and Egg: I'm Not Hatching by Laura Gehl- ESSENTIAL

Gehl, Laura Peep and Egg: I’m Not Hatching. Illustrated by Joyce Wan. BOARD BOOK. Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2016. $7.99.  

Peep simply can’t wait for her sibling to hatch. “We’re going to have so much fun once you hatch!” “Too Scary,” said Egg. “I’m not hatching.” Peep tempts her sibling with visions of watching the sunrise from the roof of the hen house, splashing in puddles, strolling the pond and say hi to the ducks and much more! But Eggs response is always the same: “I’m not hatching!” Things outside the protective eggshell are too wet, too high, and too loud.  But what happens when Peep gives up and walks away from Egg?  

Read this adorable book and explore sibling friendship as well as farm life.  The illustrations are adorable and inviting.  We really enjoyed this simple and touching book. 

Pre-K- ESSENTIAL.  Reviewer: SL.
