This story isabout some children finding Easter eggs. Little Katy is happy that she finds some eggs. She finds some eggs her Grandma had painted when she was young. All of the children get excited and want to paint eggs. They create an egg tree that people come to see from miles around. Since Easter was never a huge thing for my family it was surprising that there was such a big emphasis on the easter eggs and magic bunnies and such. The story teaches a lot about the history of this tradition.

This book had some beautiful watercolors. It alternates between illustrations in a few colors and illustrations in pink, black and grayS tones alternate with pictures that include those, plus yellow, green and brown. It is a good story but it is very wordy so it would be difficult for younger children to read.
