Ds whether helpful or sarcastic it was all good natured Every few pages are some great Did You Know facts for kids are who ready for a little math and scienceFind The Donkey Egg at Westminster Public Library today The Donkey Egg is told in the style of a folktale Fox tries to outsmart Bear by selling Bear a large green egg a donkey egg Hare Bear s neighbor stops by to check on him Why is he sitting on the donkey egg reading to it and playing games with the egg It is no surprise that the large green egg accidentally starts rolling down the hill as the story develops Throughout the story the author references a variety of fables and folktales There are facts about time and speed throughout the book Missed is the opportunity to include a fact page related to legends countries and folktales Nevertheless the story is funny It should make children laughespecially when the green egg cracks open In the end who do ou think A weak seuel to the excellent Tops Bottoms The story drags on and on and is largely composed of filler rather than substance I have no idea why the author felt it necessary to include sidebars with pointless factoids about a minute an hour a day a week and a month These just interrupt the story and clutter the pagesThe other problem I have is that this is a traditional folk tale some say Korean some say Hungarian but nowhere is this attributed or acknowledged That old trickster Fox has sold Bear a suspicious green egg He promised that if Bear sat on the egg and kept it warm a baby donkey would hatch and Bear woul. Uld rather sleep all day than work on his farm and Fox knows just the kind of help he needs a donkey When Fox tricks Bear into buying a donkey egg Bear can't wait for it to hatch so he can.

D have a helper for his farm This is a very clever book that manages to both entertain AND educate I have totally and absolutely enjoyed everything about Janet Stevens and and her sister Susan Stevens Crummel s brilliant The Donkey Egg which might I guess be considered a seuel to Janet Stevens Caldecott Honour winning Tops and Bottoms but is in my opinion also totally a stand alone type of story that just happens to feature the same Bear and Hare characters as in Tops and Bottoms I love how the authors continuously and seamlessly integrate and incorporate interesting and enlightening science and math factoids into their story and how oh so sly and Bear has lost motivation His farm is in disrepair Fox comes along and sells bear on a watermelon as a donkey egg Bear is convinced this egg will hatch into a donkey and it will help him with his farm Hare is a neighbor that sees bear being silly with this eggwatermelon The ending is a making lemonade out of lemons situation I won t spoil The twist at the end is goodThere are boxes along the way that seem a little out of place and jarring that give how many seconds in a minute and how many minutes in an hour and so on up until a ear It s informative but it feels a little out of place in the storyThe nephew had fun with the story He thought the bear sitting on the egg was hilarious or playing hide and seek with the egg It cracked him up He uoted Ron Weasley about the bear thinking the watermelon was a donkey egg He said How thick can a get Right from the movie He gave this 3 stars. Meet his new friend But donkeys don't come from eggs And when the egg finally opens Bear gets a fruity surprise Luckily Bear doesn't have to face disappointment alone Hare is there to hel.
