Oliver and His Egg by Paul Schmid is sweet. Oliver thinks he has an egg and it will hatch and he and his new friend will have all kinds of adventures. But then one of his friends mentions that it is really a rock. Instead of Oliver feeling deflated and disappointed, Oliver's imagination goes wilder. I love the energy of this book and that Oliver makes lemonade from lemons. That's a great spirit of adventure he has. The art is created with pastel pencil and digitally colored. I'll use this with children from preschool to third grade.
