“What Hatches from an Egg?”- Level G

“What Hatches from an Egg?” is a perfect way to introduce young readers to the skill of making predictions! The repeated question invites children to use picture clues and information in the text to predict the oviparous outcome. I’ve determined the Fountas & Pinnell Reading Level for this title to be Level G based on the characteristics I’ve noted below. It would be most appropriate for ages 6 – 7 and first grade readers. (Of course, PreK through first graders love this book!)

Some longer texts with repeating and complex patterns

Some unusual formats, such as questions followed by answers or letters
