Penguins, snails, lobsters, insects and humans all reproduce from eggs, which come in every size, shape and color, laid singly and in clusters. Some, like fishes' and hens' eggs, hatch outside the mother's body. Most mammals' eggs are kept within the mother's body; sea horses' are hatched in the father's body. Penguins carefully protect a single egg, while other animals produce vast numbers of eggs and immediately abandon them.

This book is filled with details and surprises about the development of baby animals. It contains solid information about human reproduction.

Accurate sketches and diagrams highlight a wealth of facts and observations by a respected naturalist and writer.
