From the publisher

Small, Speckled Egg is the first book in our Start Small, Think Big series that sets young readers on a journey of discovery, beginning from the small and familiar to new areas of knowledge where you really have to think big!

From the moment a child opens the textured cover with the peep-through hole, they will be transported to the Arctic. What will hatch from the speckled egg?

The cute fluffy chick that emerges will grow into one of the most remarkable creatures on the planet – an Arctic tern. Learn why it is extraordinary by seeing her grow up quickly, learning to fly and feed on the wing. At two months old, she is ready to embark on her record-breaking migration from the top of the world to the bottom and back again – a journey she does every year of her life. Her story is told clearly and carefully in a way that builds understanding, and it ends with the 50 fluffy chicks she has in their lifetime.

To make this book truly special, there is a big fold-out at the back, with a world mapa picture lifecycle, and an I-Spy game to take children back into in the book to find the polar animals.
