An egg-citing, fun-filled picture book awaits readers as author Rhonda Washington publishes The Egg through Xlibris. In this book, she vividly illustrates that the versatile oval-shaped sensation can be more than just crack-crack-crack, it also helps plants, promotes happiness, and balances on its end.
The Egg brings together a delightful hodgepodge of the biological, culinary, and traditional characteristics that define the hard-shelled oval structure to produce a creative egg facts book. Readers will find out just how versatile the egg can be through the many traditions it appears in, including games, knock-knock jokes, and art. The book underscores the egg as the biological beginning of various animals, and includes interesting trivia like what happens when an egg is soaked in vinegar for a week and the seasonal requirements that enable an egg to balance on its end. Washington also includes a special quest that lasts throughout the book.
Informative in all its creativity, The Egg is an eggs-quisite addition that will nurture a child’s growing stockpile of knowledge and enhance any library collection.
The Egg will be featured in the 2010 BookExpo America Book Exhibit in New York, NY, which will run May 25-27, 2010. Readers who wish to learn more about this book can log on to Xlibris.com.
