The Wonderful Egg by Dahlov Ipcar

This gorgeously illustrated story, first published in 1958, centers on “one wonderful egg,” and explores what might be inside. An elasmosaurus? A corythosaurus? A pteranodon? Each page provides facts about the creature, which our preschoolers love to learn. We caught a few factual errors — but discussing them is part of the fun. And there’s a pronunciation guide in the back to help with names like Rhanmphorhynchus. (Shwoo.)
