The Egg Tree

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.”
