In the center of the nest lay one perfect egg, the color of a spring sky. The father robin sat on a branch nearby, guarding his family. Tressa spotted raccoon tracks below and a blue jay eyeing the nest. “Gran, how are we going to keep the egg safe?”

I don't usually add children's books to my list but this is one I definitely want to add to an Easter collection for my kids. Beautiful illustrations and a wonderful Easter message.
