“There once was an egg named Eggbert. He loved to paint beautiful
Everything seemed to be going well for Eggbert, till one day it is
discovered that he is cracked. Poor Eggbert! Shunned by all his refrigerator
friends, Eggbert sets out on a journey of discovery.
Eggbert's painting skill comes in handy
when he tries to disguise himself. He paints himself to look like the
background of the places he goes. But each time he is discovered by the
residents of that area and is asked to leave. Just when things look there
dimmest for Eggbert, he realizes the world is full of beautiful cracks.
Cracks in the sky and the land make Eggbert feel better about himself, in fact
a little proud of his crack.
preschoolers will be delighted with this fabulous story. Eggbert has a clear
moral that is easy for preschoolers to understand. A wonderful story of
discovery and self acceptance, with a bit of humor thrown in.
The illustrations are exciting
and colorful. Not only will the story hold your preschoolers attention, but
the bright illustrations will capture the eye of imagination.
I recommend this
story for preschool children ages 3 –5.
