Perfect as a baby shower or Easter basket gift, The Happy Egg celebrates the promise and confidence of little birds (and young children) everywhere.

A simple and delightful story for parents and children to enjoy together, now with a refreshed cover design. From the husband-and-wife team who created the timeless classic The Carrot Seed.

The Happy Egg is just right for the youngest of readers, and the storyline lends itself to interactive reading—parents can encourage their children to walk, sing, and fly as the little bird does.

MyShelfAndI More than 1 year ago
A simple and short children’s book that focuses on reminding children that you can only achieve certain things at certain times, but if you wait and grow you will be able to do everything in time. I loved that this was illustrated by the creator of Harold And The Purple Crayon. It made a new (to me) tale feel familiar and welcoming. Overall I loved the simplicity of this story and how it still manages to deliver a powerful and necessary lesson to children of all ages.
