Book Review: Roly-Poly Egg by Kali Stileman

What would spring time be without a new life story? In this charming book by Kali Stileman, Splotch the bird lives high up in a tree. One day she lays a very spotty egg that is perfect in every way. Splotch jumps with excitement, which shakes the branch and sends the egg rolling down onto a variety of animals. Readers follow the dotted line to see where the egg will land next.

Filled with Stileman's vibrant illustrations, Roly-Poly Egg is a delightful story. As a true mother, Splotch knows her spotty egg is perfect in every way. A giraffe, two zebras, a crocodile, an elephant, and some monkeys get a chance to see the roly-poly egg, while readers follow the dotted line marking the egg's journey.

A fun book to read or read aloud, the last page includes a flap that readers can lift for a colorful surprise. Geared toward kids ages 3 to 7 (4 - 8 on Amazon), Roly-Poly Egg will enchant your youngster. I can see this book being read many times over. And at a suggested retail price of only $12.95, it's a great value.

This book would make a great addition to your child's Easter basket.
