Read in January, 2012

This book was actually one of my very favorite Caldecott winners/honors. I thought not only the concept was really informative and cute for children, but the artistry and creativity using cut-outs was quite enticing as well. I felt like I loved this book just as much as a child would because of the colors and illustrations. On each picture you could see the brushstrokes which was another beautiful touch. The book showcased the age old question: what came first, the chicken or the egg? It begins and closes the book with that question which reveals that we can never know what came first. It also tells the metamorphosis of different things in nature: seed to flower, Caterpillar to butterfly, etc.
