The Legend of the Easter Robin 
Dandi Daley Mackall
In the center of the nest lay one perfect egg, the color of a spring sky. The father robin sat on a branch nearby, guarding his family. Tressa spotted raccoon tracks below and a blue jay eyeing the nest. “Gran, how are we going to keep the egg safe?” “We’ll have to leave that one to the Creator,” Gran said. Robins have built a nest on the window ledge at Grandmother’s house! Tressa is thrilled―and concerned. What will happen to the sky-blue egg laid by the mother robin? As more eggs appear, Tressa witnesses the daily drama of the robins’ nest and learns how God cares for all creatures. Besides watching the birds, there are Easter eggs to color. And there is a very special story to hear―a tale of long ago about one small bird with a very big heart. How did the robin get its red breast? Tressa is about to find out as Gran tells her the story of the Easter robin. Brought to life with colorful, tender illustrations, The Legend of the Easter Robin will captivate and teach your child about compassion and faith.

In my opinion:

This was a very sweet and loving story about a young girl named Tressa who learned a lesson from her gran about the legend of the Easter robin. It definitely was a story filled with compassion and faith. We need to have faith in God to take care of those around us as well as its creatures. I think it is important to look through the eyes of a child as they are learning and growing. Children have love in their hearts as we can see from Tressa’s example. She learned an important lesson from her gran and also learned about an old Pennsylvania Dutch tradition called oschter-foggel. I’m definitely going to introduce this new tradition to my children. It will be a fun activity to do right before Easter.

The illustrations were beautiful and filled each page perfectly. I always appreciate the time the illustrators take to bring the story to life. I definitely recommend The legend of the Easter Robin.
