Peep and Egg: I'm Not Hatching

Peep and Egg

Laura Gehl; illustrated by Joyce Wan

Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)


Board book

Egg is not hatching.
No way. No how.
It is too scary out there.
Peep wants Egg to hatch so they can do fun things together, like watch the sunrise, splash in puddles, and play hide-and-seek.
But Egg is not cracking...

Joyce Wan's bright and bold illustrations will have young chickies giggling at Laura Gehl's reassuring tale that takes the not out of I'm not.
