Big Brother Egg is a very cute story originally written by a Japanese author, Tadashi Akiyama, in 2001, that has since been translated into Chinese.
Big Brother Egg is a chicken who doesn't want to come out from his egg shell, because he secretly wishes that he never has to grow up. As long as he remains inside his shell, mommy and daddy will continue to love and cuddle him like a baby.
He is extremely careful with his shell, as he walks around the farm. He runs away from "dangerous characters" (like the crow who offers to help break his shell), and avoids spots he deems too dangerous (like the rock that he almost trips over).
One fine morning however, to his horror, he woke up and found out...
A hilarious read you can share with your child. This is a great book for parents to let their children know that, no matter they what they become, even when they are no longer babies, they will always be mommy & daddy little darlings.
