Chickens Aren't the Only Ones

Chickens Aren't the Only Ones
Ruth Heller
Grosset & Dunlap, 1981

I know 1981 isn't exactly vintage... or is it!?! OH MY GOD, I'M OLD! Anyway, even though this isn't vintage in the traditional sense of the word, I still think it is an old(ish) book that is awesome, and my son loves the vivid pictures of all the various oviparous animals.

Chickens aren't the only ones. There's no more to discuss. Everyone who lays an egg is oviparous.

The colors are all so bright and vibrant, and the one page with all the different bird eggs is a Kodak dream. So yea, this book is about anything and everything that lays eggs from dinosaur to hummingbird to platypus to fish to bug. A very cool idea with a great execution. Two thumbs up.
