Tillie Lays an Egg
Golson, Terry Blonder. 2009. Tillie lays an egg. New York: Scholastic.
Of course, I live in NJ, so take this with a grain of salt, but my eldest daughter related something to me the other day - Her language arts teacher mentioned that, in one of her classes, not one student knew the sound that a donkey makes. How sad that we've become so far removed from the farms and country that feed us. (Doesn't anyone sing "Old MacDonald" anymore?)
Tillie Lays an Egg may be just the book to inspire a preschooler's interest in farm life.
The stunning photography combined with the fun of look-and-find,
"Where has Tillie laid her egg?"
and the attendant humor (Tillie lays her eggs on the kitchen table and the ironing board, among other unlikely places!)
make this book a winner!! Hee Haw!
