In this gorgeous picture book, Britta Teckentrup portrays eggs through the eyes of an artist.  In Teckentrup's hands, a scattering of broken egg shells become abstract art, a nest of unhatched eggs suggest the possibility and promise of life.  Her studies of songbirds and nests are themselves beautifully composed works of colour and line.  A lovely meditation on the diversity of eggs, this magnificent book offers hours of lingering pleasure, and becomes fertile ground for conversation and imagination.
