Overview

A Ukrainian Celebration of New Life in Christ Children love coloring Easter eggs,
and here’s a story to explain one of the origins of this tradition. In early nineteenth-century Ukraine, Christians celebrated Easter by exchanging colorful, hand-decorated pysanky eggs—but with Papa away at the war and Mama struggling to make ends
meet, Anya’s family was too poor to buy eggs to decorate one year. That is, until Anya discovered an abandoned nest of goose eggs and began planning an Easter surprise for
her family. But God had an even better surprise in store, and when the eggs unexpectedly began to hatch, Anya learned what the Easter story teaches:
spring brings gifts of myriad new beginnings, just as the risen Christ gave the gift of new life to us all. Each Traditions of Faith book features a story of how significant Christian traditions emerged in cultures around the world, with a note about the origin and history of the tradition, and offers ideas and activities each family can adopt as its own.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Nineteenth-century Ukraine is the rustic setting for a picture-book tale of Easter and its attendant new beginnings. As the holiday approaches, young Anya prays that her father will return from the war and that her family's struggling farm will prosper. At the same time, she laments the fact that she will have no eggs to decorate as traditional painted pysanky eggs this year. But Anya stumbles on good fortune when a fox catches a mother goose that leaves behind a nest of four eggs. Though Anya secretly rejoices that she will have pysanky Easter gifts to give after all, the goose's treasure ensures that Anya's prayers are answered in a number of other surprising ways. In this latest entry in the Traditions of Faith from Around the World series, Kroll introduces, via the everyday life of a child, the key aspects of this Christian celebration as it is cherished by another culture. Comport's (Brave Margaret) mixed-media compositions, featuring lots of springy pinks and greens, make readers feel like they are peeking into a pastel scrapbook from another time. Notes on the history of the egg painting tradition and suggestions for crafts and activities are included. Intricate pysanky-style painting adorns the endpages. Ages 4-8. (Mar.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
