The Talking Eggs: Hardcover

USD $17.99

This was one of my daughter’s favorite books when she was little. She loved all the details and twists and turns in the story. It is full of unexpected surprises and colorful events. I also loved that it told a fairytale/folk story from a point of view that was not Western European. My daughter’s father is from Sudan and she spent her early childhood in an International community with friends from many different countries so it was always a treat to be able to find books that allowed her to hear stories from different cultures. – Kristie Burns, Earthschooling
