I bought this for a project we were doing. It was great. So nice for the children to see what's "insuide" the egg with the transparent pages. Nice feel to pages and brilliant colours.

These books have been an interesting, learning and adorable experience not only to my granddaughter but to me as well. It wakes up lots of inquiries from her.

I loved this book. I am a preschool teacher and I use this book while I am on the Farm Theme. I really liked this book for young children, because it has all the concepts I want them to learn expressed in a simple form, and very interesting format. I didn't give it 5 stars because the book is really small.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a must have collection for every child from 3 to 10 2 Jan. 2015
By Gisela Hausmann - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I own 31 books from this series. Even though I have moved twice since I bought them when my children were little, I kept these books for my future grandchildren; the series is that well designed. All books have transparency pages, which help to illustrate before and after stages, as well as “what’s underneath”. For instance, one page shows a tree standing in its natural surroundings. Once readers flip the transparency page, they can see “inside”; the branches, roots, bugs that make their home in the tree, moles in the ground next to the tree and so on. This system is extremely educational and appeals to children’s natural curiosity.
Though I would recommend the purchase of all books, some of them are better than others. These are what I believe to be the six best books from this series (in order)
1) The Tree
The first page already allows children to “look inside” of a green prickly chestnut; “discover” the beautiful and shiny brown nut as well as the white inside of the protective bur. The book uses the chestnut tree to explain how trees grow, the parts of the tree, how the seasons affect trees, and why trees are an important parts of animals’ habitats. Briefly the book also introduces other types of trees.
2) The Camera
Young readers will be fascinated to learn how pictures were taken in the past. The book shows how a camera works on the inside as well as how pictures were developed in the dark room (complete with red light). Also included – Polaroid pictures, ultrasound and X-ray pictures, video cameras and Panasonic movie cameras, and even how a photo booth works.
3) The Egg
Though this book does not answer the question, which came first, the chicken or the egg, the transparency pages help to explain how the egg is formed inside the hen, and how the chick starts to grow. The book also explains how eggs of different birds and reptiles differ in size and shape.
4) Colors
The book not only introduces the colors but also shows how orange, green, purple, violet, brown and gray are being “mixed”. The transparency pages are a perfect way to illustrate the ‘mixing’ process because young readers can see the “before and after”. The transparency pages illustrate the changes.
5) Underground
Shows anthills, mole tunnels, fox burrows and many more animals’ homes; includes all kinds of habitats – from the beach to the desert
6) The Pyramids
brings the fascinating world of the old Egyptians alive. Depicted are how pyramids were built, and the embalming and burial of a dead pharaoh. Very cool are the illustrations of Howard Carter finding King Tutankhamen’s treasure chamber. Also included - the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Other books from this series which I own:
Light, Vegetables, Airplanes, Weather, All About Time, Fruit, Animals, Bears, Penguins, Boats, The Ladybug, Dinosaurs, The River, Birds, Whales, Cats, The Seashore, The Earth and the Sky, Musical Instruments, Castles, and The Rain Forest.
Additionally, I own the following German editions of what appears to be the same series published by Meyer’s Kleine Bibliothek.
Die Biene (The Honey Bee), Die Stadt (The City), Kleiner Weltatlas (Little World Atlas), and Die Indianer (Native Americans).
Yes, my children and I loved this series so much that we bought and collected these books when vacationing overseas.

5.0 out of 5 stars gteat preschoolers read 22 Aug. 2016
By jimmy r campbell - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I use this book as my first one to this unit to explain the concept of an egg. This book just touches on other animals that also come from eggs, which leads perfectly into my day 2 book, An Egg is Quiet, which is much more thorough in that regard. I had forgotten just how much liked this book and how glad I have it in my library for this theme, which we didn't do last year. I had to write a review. Someone said it is out of print? If that's true, grab one up!
