Description

From science teacher Laura Gehl and award-winning illustrator Loris Lora, Who Laid These Eggs? invites children to lift the flaps on every page of this board book to learn about eight animal species and their nests!

In this innovative nonfiction board book, young readers will see eggs in different environments on each spread. They can lift the flaps to discover all of the different animal nests and eggs—and learn a simple fact about each species. Featured creatures include robins, alligators, ostriches, salmon, butterflies, seagulls, snakes, and chickens, plus the kids who gather the eggs from the coop!

About the Author

Laura Gehl is a former science teacher who still loves getting kids excited about science and nature . . . now through her books. Ever since reading about a poop-shooting caterpillar many years ago, she has spent time researching and writing about interesting creatures and their behaviors. Gehl is the author of more than two dozen books for young readers, including Odd Beasts, Odd Birds, Who Dug This Hole?, Happy Llamakkah, and Happy Owl-oween. Gehl lives with her husband and four kids in Chevy Chase, Maryland, where a robin once laid eggs on her windowsill.
Loris Lora is a Latinx illustrator and designer from Southern California who is inspired by her Mexican upbringing, mid-century illustration and design, pop culture, and bright colors. Her nuanced observations of people and nature bring sensitive details and a playful style to compositions. She has illustrated multiple books, including May Your Life Be Deliciosa (winner of the Pura Belpré Illustrator Honor Award), the Eisner-nominated Eventually Everything Connects, and Who Dug This Hole? Lora lives with her partner in their tiny Spanish home in Riverside, California, where they enjoy watching the neighborhood critters explore their growing cacti garden.
