Picture Book Puzzler: Egg-cellent Guess!

Spring is finally here and Easter is around the corner. We love thinking about flowers blooming, baby animals being born and eggs hatching. There's such a wonderful mystery about eggs (When will it hatch? What will be inside?) that makes it a great topic for many, many picture books. I've collected a few favorite classics featuring eggs and have put an image from each below. Can you name the book? Put your guesses in the comments below and I'll be back at the end of teh week with the answers.
