The book is about a little girl that goes to visit her Grandpa in Texas, she is excited and looking forward to being with him. Every day they eat eggs and she tells him the the is funny because he saves the shells which he replies is for fun. Every day he tells her this and that she will have to wait and see what the shells are for and he continued to add them to the previous egg shells he got earlier from the week. At the end of the story he uses them to have a party which looks as colorful confetti.

Personal Reaction:

It was a very short story with hardly any words which honestly weren't needed if a child in turn wanted to tell the story. Just looking at the pictures they can easily tell what is going on follow the story line on their own.

Extension Ideas:

1) Read this story around Easter time and dye eggs in all different colors and save the shells for a party like in the book
2) Have the kids draw a picture of the state of Texas and their best colorful egg
