A familiar story - waiting for the last egg to hatch, so I expected some surprise ending. However, the title is inviting and original. Rhyming text set in thin black font invites joining in to the action words and building of suspense. Rhyming phrases are spread over 2-3 pages. Beautiful, realistic...

Rhyming text and realistic detailed illustrations of the springtime world enhance this simple tale about the last egg to hatch. Good tie-in with our first graders' science unit on life cycles and hatching chicken eggs.

I definitely feel like reading this book to my belly about now - shake a leg! Come on out!! The rhyming text is fun, and the illustrations are pretty. A little light on substance, but it's still a fun read.

"Meet the pond. Greet the sun. Say hello to everyone!" A mother and her babies wait for the last egg to hatch, cajoling it with enticing descriptions of what is awaiting its arrival. The illustrations are wonderful.

Hard to find something new in the eggs/birds categories but this one - with terrific rhymes, geese, and glorious illustrations of pond/lake life, this one is worth the purchase. Sure to be a hit at story time.

Lovely illustrations and internal rhymes. The varying meter and rhyming structure threw me off a bit.
