Illustrated by Alice Lindstrom
Eggs decorated with leaves, lace, or even string.
Wrap them up in a cloth and dip them into colourful dye.
Unwrap for a beautiful surprise.
Decorated eggs are found all over the world in many different countries. They are a wonderful celebration of family, culture, and tradition.
Complete with a stencil incorporated into the design, this book will encourage children to create their own beautiful eggs.
A large-format board book for Easter that celebrates traditions of egg-decorating from around the world with exquisite cut-paper illustrations.
This book is a great resource for teachers, parents and care givers and is much better treat for your pre-schooler than chocolates at Easter 😊. This board book is easy for little hands to hold and use, the bright, colourful designs are mesmerising… and the narrative is a simple and engaging way to introduce your little ones to the tradition of egg decorating – the book provides examples from around the world.
And what I love best (after the fact this is a perfect Easter gift) is the template at the back that allows your child to draw their own eggs and colour, paint, stamp, glue and decorate to their hearts content. Within minutes of showing this to my grandson we were drawing eggs and gathering up crayons to start decorating. A book that entertains and encourages creativity – what a great find! Published today – check it out.
What a great idea for a shared project, Carol! And I’ll bet the illustrations are gorgeous. I like it, too, that the book shows how people in different places decorate eggs – an interesting way to teach little ones about other places. I’ll bet you and your grandson had a lovely time with this!
Margot it’s great fun – I love this creative play.
