Out of the Egg

Share Me

Out of the Egg is a beautiful book with fantastic woodcut prints and lyrical text that turns the tale of the Little Red Hen upside down.

You think you know the tale of the Little Red Hen. You think you know how it ends. But in this story, everything changes when the hard-working Red Hen lays a perfect white egg. And out of this egg comes a chick with a mind of her own . . .  

This book is timeless.

Its message is about conservation.

It is strikingly illustrated by author/illustrator Tina Matthews. These editions are translated by Kiwa Hammond and Nicole Maynard.
