Sarah Weeks' thoughtful story will engross even the youngest readers with its gentle reminder of the brotherhood of all men. Set in a midnight diner among a colorful mix of animal customers, Two Eggs, Please! prods readers to think about the things that make us different and the things that make us the same. As our 15-page guide makes clear, Betsy Lewin's charming illustrations help drive home the story's themes and provide lots of opportunities for discussions with very young readers. This title makes a great first book for parents and teachers just starting out in the Teaching the Classics program.
