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?” “We’ll have to leave that one to the Creator,” Gran said. Robins have built a nest on the window ledge at Grandmother’s house! Tressa is thrilled—and concerned. What will happen to the sky-blue egg laid by the mother robin? As more eggs appear, Tressa witnesses the daily drama of the robins’ nest and learns how God cares for all creatures. Besides watching the birds, there are Easter eggs to color. And there is a very special story to hear—a tale of long ago about one small bird with a very big heart. How did the robin get its red breast? Tressa is about to find out as Gran tells her the story of the Easter robin. Brought to life with colorful, tender illustrations, The Story of the Easter Robin will captivate and teach your child about compassion and faith.
During a chilly spring, Tressa is concerned about a robin's eggs, but her grandmother assures her that God will protect them. In a scene that readers might find unsettling in the context of the preceding, the two blow the gooey insides out of chicken eggs to make oschter-foggel (Easter birds). Tressa's grandmother then shares the Pennsylvania Dutch story of how the robin got its red breast pulling a thorn from Jesus' forehead. A textured alternative to fluffier Easter fare. Ages 4 7.
