The Happy Egg
by Ruth Krauss, Crockett Johnson (Illustrator)
Release Date: January 18, 2005
Publisher: HarperCollins
Book Type: Childrens Harcover
Pages: 40

When a little bird is inside an egg, it cannot walk, it cannot sing, and it cannot fly. All it can do is be sat on. But when the time is just right: "Pop!" -- out it comes. And then a little bird can do almost anything!
With the same insightful simplicity of their classic The Carrot Seed, Ruth Krauss and Crockett Johnson celebrate the promise and confidence of little birds (and young children) everywhere.

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.
