This is another good book for young children when talking about different types of animals and where they come from. I like how it shows all different kinds of animals and not just sea animals or not just farm animals.

If a teacher wants to teach children about animals and how they are born from eggs this is the perfect book for it. It shows the different types of animals that come from eggs and how each creature develops differently. Very informal and follows development in steps.
