#FreeBookFriday: P. ZONKA LAYS AN EGG by Julie Paschkis

We took January off from #FreeBookFriday to give ourselves the chance to stop and smell the roses. Then we remembered—just in time for February—that there aren't too many roses around in winter.

This got us thinking about all of the things we're looking forward to about the warmer months ahead: Hiking (without the parka!), going to Braves games, picking strawberries, and spending rainy days curled up with a good book.


Everything about spring feels new and fresh and hopeful, doesn't it?

The world emerges, full of color, from the dreary, monochromatic winter, and we can't help but wonder at the beauty around us. That feeling is exactly what P. ZONKA LAYS AN EGG, today's #FreeBookFriday, is all about. We could tell you more...or we could let the [STARRED!] reviews speak for themselves. Enter to win your copy below!
