Overview

Crack, crack...animal babies are hatched all over the place. Can you figure out who's who? Watercolor and collage illustrations depict close-up scenes of an egg or eggs about to hatch. The text hints at what the eggs contain: "Hidden in a rock cave/ Deep beneath the ocean waves/ Their mother wraps her long arms around/ To keep these eggs safe and sound." The observant young nature lover will find a visual clue of what animal the mother might be. The next spread provides the answer-in this case, it's an octopus. The second spread also provides fascinating facts about the species. The book features a number of species ranging from spiders to penguins to octopuses, and the back matter provides more information about the actual size of various eggs and how they develop.

Posada gives readers a very interesting take on the life cycle book. It starts off with rhyming guessing games for different eggs and animals. At the end there are diagrams of how big the eggs actually are and details about the animals' early life cycles.

The book, "Guess What is Growing Inside This Egg" is a very good science information book. The book has different animals that hatch from an egg. This would be a good resource to use in a science lesson on animals that hatch from eggs. Overall I would suggest this book to any teacher to put in their library.
