先有蛋 First the Egg

  • $12.90


Which came first? The egg or the chicken? First, the egg, then the chicken. First, the tadpole, then the frog. First, the seed, then the flower.

This simple but beautifully illustrated book introduces children to the concept of what comes first and what comes next. Cause and effect. Life cycles. Creation. And how all stories first came from the building blocks of words. 

Raved by preschool teachers for gorgeous paintings!
