Raychelle Reviews: Meg the Egg by Rita Antoinette Borg

Meg the Egg by Rita Antoinette Borg is a delightful little story about love and bravery. Meg is a baby chick who is afraid to hatch from her shell because the sounds of the outside world are frightening to her. Once she realizes that her mother is in danger, Meg springs into action. She puts herself in harm's way to save her mother's life.

Meg the Egg is wonderfully-illustrated with animated drawings and warm colors that help to keep the reader engaged. It's use of onomatopoeia makes for an effective teaching tool.

Young readers may find Howls to be a frightening character, but he helps the reader to connect with Meg's feelings of fear, panic, and determination. It took tremendous amounts of courage to rescue her mother-especially at the risk of perishing. Meg the Egg has a hopeful message that will teach children what unconditional love really is.
