Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.

Now, the most important thing about egg-sitting is to stop your egg from getting cold.

That means it has to be kept off the ice and out of the wind.

And what better way to do that than to rest it on your feet and tuck it right up under your tummy?

Which is just what the father penguin does.

           -- Martin Jenkins, The Emperor's Egg (Candlewick, 1999)
