Two Speckled Eggs by Jennifer K. Mann
Ginger is excited about her birthday party. Her mother insists she cannot exclude anyone from the invitations, but Ginger thinks Lyla Browning is weird.
This is a great story about friendship. During the party games and the cake, Ginger begins to get a new perspective on Lyla, and when she opens Lyla’s present she discovers a tiny handmade bird’s nest with two chocolate malted-milk eggs. Lyla’s gift is unique, as is Lyla.
Jennifer K. Mann’s author notes on the flap of the book say that she came up with the idea for the story from two photographs from her seventh birthday party. Do you remember your seventh birthday? This book may stir some memories!
