Title: First the Egg

Author: Laura Vaccaro Seeger

KDL Description:


Using simple text and illustrations, shows how animals and objects change, including tadpoles to frogs and seeds to flowers, in a book with cutouts so that certain colors from the previous picture help create the next picture.

Amazon Description:

WHICH CAME FIRST?  The chicken or the egg?  Simple die-cuts magically present transformation—from seed to flower, tadpole to frog, caterpillar to butterfly.
The acclaimed author of  Black? White! Day? Night! and Lemons Are Not Red gives an entirely fresh and  memorable presentation to the concepts of transformation and creatiity.  Seed becomes flower, paint becomes picture, word becomes story—and the commonplace becomes extraordinary as children look through and turn the pages of this novel and winning book.
