" • 2008 Caldecott Honor Book •I like the concept of this: "First the egg then the chicken, first the tadpole then the frog" etc. I just don't love the art. And I really didn't care for the typography. Black type on a dark background is hard to read, and the kerning was bad. Typography is so important! I think that kids will probably enjoy trying to fill in the blank when reading this aloud ("First the egg then the...") and the cutouts. " said.

Number of Pages-28
Book Format- Hard cover
Reading Level- Age level: Pre-k-2nd grade; GR level: E
Genre- Non fiction
Lit Requirement- Engineered book 2

Summary- This book gives a glimpse into many cycles of life, starting with animals, moving onto plants, then words, then painting, then back to animals.

Response- I think it would be easy for children to get confused as to what they are reading about in this book initially. I would like to think they would enjoy the fact that each page has a hole in it that reveals a piece of what is on the next page. It is a good book for predicting, too.

"This is a great book for beginning readers and would also be great to read to children. This book would be great for young children who are beginning to develop and understanding of the world around them. The book does a great job of showing that thing develop and change over time. Not only do we see an egg, but we also see a seed that becomes a flower, a caterpillar that becomes a butterfly, a word that becomes a story, and more. I give this book a 4/5 simply because I did not love the illustrations. While they were colorful and well done, I did not think that they really added much to the book. Overall, I would still read this to my students and think it is worth a second look." said.

" 4.5 out of 5I couldn't stop reading this book over and over... Simple, beautiful and so clever! " said.

" I really thought the way this book was done was ingenious. It's a cut-out book with various cut-outs meaning one thing on one side of the page, and then after turning the page, the cut-out is something else. A lot of thought went into the creation of this book, and I think it would help small children with understanding shapes and the way things progress from one stage to another (ex. from an egg to a chicken, from a caterpillar to a butterfly, etc.). " said.

" summary: First the egg then the chicken. Then the book continues with seeds, tadpoles, and caterpillars.Curriculum Connection: First...then..., sequence of events, connectionsAudience: pre-k-2Personal Reaction: I loved the simplicity of the book. The cutouts make it fun and make you want to read it again.Visual Appeal: The use of all primary colors with visible brush strokes will appeal to young children. " said.

"First the Egg is a 2008 Caldecott Honor book written for children ages 4 to 6. It is nearly a wordless picture book that is about transformations: "first the egg, then the chicken; first the tadpole, then the frog...first the word, then the story". The illustrations in this book are colorful, yet simple, child-like paintings in hues that capture the environment of the subject. The author puts an interesting twist at the end of the book to reinforce the concept of the the circle of life--the book starts with "first the egg" and ends with "first the chicken". This book will capture the imaginations of our young students and can be used in as a teaching tool to discuss other ideas that follow the concept of first...then." said.

"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. " said.
