An Extraordinary Egg tells the story about three friends who are frogs and find an egg. They think it's a chicken egg, so the animal coming out of the egg must be a chicken (although you can see on the pictures that it's an alligator). At the end of the book one of the frogs brings the "chicken" back to his mother who calls him "little alligator". The frogs find this very funny and can't stop laughing about it. This story could be used to teach children about eggs, what is inside an egg and which animals lay eggs.

A frog named Jessica finds an egg and brings it home to show to her family of frogs. They decide it is the egg of a chicken, and befriend it. Then one day they find out that "chicken's" mother is searching for him, and when they take him home the mother calls him an alligator and all the frogs laugh hysterically. Younger audiences would find this mix up funny.

I like that the pictures help kids understand the humor in the alligator's egg being mistaken for a chicken's egg. I feel that this humor is age-appropriate for readers of the age that could read this book independently. I also like the way the theme of friendship is explored. The outcast frog, whose discoveries seem unappreciated by her friends, has the ability to make them laugh at the end of the book, and it even turns out that they are the ones who don't know that they are mistaken.

I liked this book because of the language that is used. Throughout the book, the author uses words such as wonder, extraordinary, mound, triumphantly, astonished, amazement, raspy and frightened. The language can help students to increase their vocabulary. One thing I wasn't impressed with about this book was the size of the font as well as the amount of text on each page. The premise of the story is set for a younger audience who would not be able to read this book on their own. The main idea of the story is that curiosity can often be a good thing.

This would be a fun story to read to students. I think it would help them understand that sometimes people are wrong about what they say and do not even know it, just like the frogs were wrong about the alligator. I also think it would be a fun book to have students work on their critical thinking skills to see if and when they would notice that the "chicken" is really an alligator. I really liked this story.
