This cute little book is a coloring book that tells the story.  It is a very Ukrainian story, peopled with a Dyid and Baba (grandfather and grandmother) and a host of village animals: a chicken, a cat, a dog, a goat, a pig, and a cow.  The chicken lays magical eggs–pysanky–and anyone who holds them becomes immediately happy. Everyone, animals included, is wearing Ukrainian costumes.

It is a sweet story, with lots of lovely pages to color, both characters and pysanky.  Based on the drawings, this book would be intended for children with fine motor skills, (older elementary school).
