Daniel finds an egg. What kind of animal will this mystery egg hatch? Imaginations run wild as the kids in Daniel's class guess what sort of surprise the egg has in store. Teachers comment that this is an excellent book to practice prediction, since Daniel's friends are actually predicting which animal may hatch from the surprising egg. Of course they are also enjoying it as a book to talk about animals who hatch from eggs. Some teachers have paired this book with another of Alma Flor's books Who's Hatching Here? / ¿Quién nacerá aquí?
