An eggcellent Time

Posted on August 11, 2015 by Gibbs Smith


Hello, Birdlits! Professor Hawkins here.

Today we are going to talk about the birds cleverly introduced into BabyLit’s Wuthering Heights. The illustrator hid a nest of birds in the tree. Your little ones will enjoy looking from illustration to illustration to see the nest empty, the nest filled with eggs, the mother sitting on her eggs, and the little chicks first in the nest and then on the ground below as they head out into the world.

DoodleLit has taken advantage of this fun art and incorporated it into an “eggcellent” doodle prompt for kids. In DoodleLit, you are given a page of outlined eggs and invited to decorate them with pens, markers, crayons, and glitter. Go wild! Research actual bird egg colors (there are more than you think)! Cut out your colored eggs and give them to your friends. No need to wait until Easter. Eggs should be celebrated every day of the year!

As an OAFS (Official Appointed Fowl Spokesman), I feel it important to acknowledge that DoodleLit has greatly honored birds in general by dedicating these fine pages to appreciating the beauty of the egg.

So until next time, don’t crack up!

Sincerely, Professor Hawkins
