NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 22

P. Zonka Lays an Egg by Julie Paschkis. March 2015.

From Amazon: "Extraordinary hen P. Zonka spends her time taking in the beauty around her: the shiny green of the grass, the buttery yellows of the dandelions, the deep blue of the sky. The other hens can't understand why she never lays eggs like they do. Finally, P. Zonka gives in and lays an egg. To everyone's delight, she produces a wondrous egg that contains all the colors and designs that she has stored in her creative imagination."

My thoughts: I love the folk-ish illustrations in this book and the simple storyline. Though it was released last spring, just in time for Easter-egg-decorating, it's sure to brighten your day any time of year. I'll admit I was confused by the title -- a chicken named P. Zonka?? -- but a paragraph on the last page describes a "pysanka" and it all makes sense now.

Recommended Age: 3-7 years
