Egg + The Happy Egg


Last weekend I made my first ever stop at Books of Wonder in New York. And what I said on my Instagram Stories that day is still true: that place is my dream house. Have you been?

Here are a couple of the books I walked out with, unintentionally yet perfectly themed. Both celebrate the magic and surprise of something so fragile and small and not-yet-flying. Both are brilliant for the preschool set and the grownups who remember.

Both are absolutely perfect.

Is there anyone better than Ruth Krauss? If so, maybe it’s Kevin Henkes.

PS: My book-egg is about to hatch! If you are local to LA, please join me for a launch party at Once Upon a Time. I would love to see you!

    I just commented on another blog about remembering books from my childhood and The Happy Egg is one of those books! I have a whole set of neural synapses devoted to that book; I could probably describe every page. And Kevin Henkes! Between this and Waiting, I’m thinking that he must have something long-wished for about to come to fruition. Love, love, love.
