Except If by Jim Averbeck is a simple yet whimsical tale told in one long run on sentence. It is the story of an egg that challenges what a preschooler knows to be true and questions what might be instead. The story begins with an egg that you think could hatch a baby bird EXCEPT IF it is a baby snake EXCEPT IF it is a lizard EXCEPT IF it is a dinosaur and on the tale goes till we end up back with an egg. It is a great chance to talk with little ones about how what they think might be certain can also be so much more or something else altogether. This story can come off the page and into the reader’s everyday life when you ponder… EXCEPT IF. See this book listed in our catalog
