Both my toddler and pre-schooler love this book, and I love reading it to them. Simple and clever illustrations teach them sequence of events. There are very few words and the structure of the book allows you to embellish it - hey, they can't read to correct me, right!? So part of the joy in this book is seeing the confidence they have in what's going to come next and them not knowing how Mommy is going to mix it up.

This does not answer the question about whether the chick or egg came first, by the way. The book is called "First the Egg", but if you take off the dust jacket, the cover underneath says "First the Chicken". Way to weasel your way outta that one, Seeger!
