    I was born and raised in the suburbs of Cincinnati, Ohio, a beautiful city built, like Rome, on seven hills wooded hills of oak, walnut, and maple where I and my childhood imagination ran wild I enjoy throwing myself into situations which give me an opportunity to explore and grow I joined the Peace Corps in my late twenties and went to live in Cameroon in western Africa for almost four years It was there I first realized I wanted to write for children.

  • I love this book because I have than a few know it all kids who always think they have everything figured out, and when I read it to them, if they predicted right or wrong their classmates spoke up and said, Predicting is a good strategy, but I don t think you re doing it to improve your reading Please don t spoil the story We also discussed it s similarities to the cumulative books we ve read lately and that the Caldecott folks seem to love a good cumulative story Joseph Had a Little Overcoat, [...]

  • This story was a big hit with Toddler Monkey, because it coincidentally features one of her new favorite words except though she likes to say except of instead of except if, as in, Everyone loves spinach, except of me The book reads as a kind of exploration of the imagination What could possibly come out of an egg What might this snake also look like The book also includes a dinosaur and fossils, which are a topic of great fascination right now What happened to the dinosaurs What is the fossil T [...]

  • Really like the way he takes an illustration and situation you think you understand and turns it into something else, which happens at the beginning you think it s a baby bird, except if it s a snake, then you think it s a snake, except if it s a lizard Not so thrilled with the except if s that arent possible lizard turning into a dinosaur The ending is a predictable, but it s nice It works.Curriculum Connection This would be great to inspire creative writing drawing projects in Middle School.

  • In this imaginative picture book, readers are asked to imagine the possibilities if things that are expected turn out not to be what they expect The text and illustrations begin with an egg that might turn into a baby bird and then end with a bird in a nest It s all great fun and prompts a lot of pondering of the things that are possible if we don t limit ourselves to what is already expected The simple watercolor and oil illustrations suit the text well and are likely to prompt some interesting [...]

  • I really enjoyed this book and the concept of it, and planned to use it at my Egg Preschool DiscoveryTime though it would also be great for a Toddler storytime didn t arrive in time unfortunately It s all about an egg hatching and the possibilities about what could be hatching from it For example, it could be a bird except if it is a baby snake, etc etc My son loved this book Recommended for ages 2 6, 4 stars.


  • I was drawn to this title as having excellent potential for a preschool audience to keep them guessing and gasping my girls literally gasped I will definitely incorporate this book into a storytime as soon as I have a gig An egg hatchesd appears to be one thingexcept if s not It is fun to encourage children to stretch their imaginations and see the possibilities that things may not be as they initially appear.


  • In the beginning, there is an egg Which may become a baby bird, except if it becomes a baby snake instead Except if the baby snake is really truly a dinosaur In this young, clever, and whimsical picture book in the spirit of Not a Box and First the Egg, an egg is not just an egg, but a symbol of the potential a child s imagination holds As each image melds smoothly, but unexpectedly, into the next, readers are invited to stretch the limits of their imagination.


  • This is a fantastic book for getting children thinking about possibilities An egg will hatch into a bird, except if it hatches into something else A lizard is a lizard, except if it s a dinosaur, and a dinosaur is a dinosaur, except if it s a fossil Brilliant for thinking, talking and reflecting on the IB concepts of Form and Change.


  • Cute little story kept the kids and me guessing Always fun when there is a bit of repetition the kids start to recognize the words except if and read along and then it s just fun how it ends exactly how you would have expected it to start but then it would have been a much shorter book


  • Published 2011picture bookAn egg is not a baby bird but it will be come one except if it becomes a baby snake Cute little book about how things may not be exactly as they seem This would probably be fun in storytime with all of the twists and turns it takes But in the end we come back to the egg which will not necessarily become a baby bird except if it does.


  • Toddler s might not understand the except if concept yet but they will enjoy the bright colors and the flow of the story told by the pictures Preschooler that always ask what if will delight in this book about an egg that hatches that might be a chicken, except if it is a snake, that will slither, except if it is a lizard it will walk and so on Great for a storytime focusing on imagination.


  • This would make a fun read aloud, except if your kids were noisy, which could be fun, except if they get confused But then the illustrations might help clarify them, except if you have a LOT of kids Unless you are good at sharing picture books Sorry the book makes me want to write think like it, except if it might annoy people.


  • Love this book I think kids can really get into a good cause and effect book Also, this book is a good alternative if you re sick of bunnies in your spring time storytime or you don t want to learn 100 o saurus names for a dinosaur storytime Cute, shorter than a Give a Mouse book with a better result for preschoolers.


  • Show a kid an egg in a nest and he will probably assume it is a bird s egg Averbeck s book takes first assumptions like that and shows how they aren t necessarily true Interesting, but better executed in Mac Barnett s Guess Again.


  • This books is an example of a perfectly constructed picturebook There is surprise and whimsy, a narrative and humor It is perfectly circular with a hint of evolution all backed by simple, yet artfully rendered oil and watercolor illustrations.Magnificent.


  • AN EGG IS NOT A BABY BIRD, BUT WILL BECOME ONE EXCEPT IF Its a very short read,so theres not much you can say about this book without giving anything away The book goes throughout different things possibly being something else Its super cute and helps children keep their imagination flowing This book would be best in science classrooms or when talking about transformations This book was super cute and would definitely recommend
