Katherine Milhous

“Katy and Carl went egg hunting through Grandmom’s house on Easter morning. Before going up to the attic, Katy was unable to locate anything. And she found a unique batch of eggs there.

When Grandmom was a young girl, she painted them. And at this point, she hung them from an egg-shaped tree’s branches. A particularly unusual Easter custom was thus established.

Children will undoubtedly be motivated to create their very own Egg Trees after reading this Caldecott Medal-winning tale of a Pennsylvania Dutch Easter.”
