A Ukrainian Easter celebration involves exchanging colorful, hand-decorated psanky
eggs--but this year, with Papa away at the war and Mama struggling to make ends meet, Anya's family is too poor to buy eggs to decorate. That is, until Anya discovers an abandoned nest of goose eggs, and begins planning an Easter surprise for her family. But God has an even better surprise in store, and Anya soon learns 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. Recommended for ages 4 to 8.
