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.

Tressa is about to find out as Gran tells her the story of the Easter robin.Brought to life with colorful, tender illustrations, The Story of the Easter Robin will captivate and teach your child about compassion and faith.

Her novel My Boyfriends’ Dogs is now a Hallmark Movie. Dandi writes from rural Ohio, where she lives with her family, including horses, dogs, cats, and an occasional squirrel, deer, or raccoon.
Two stories fold into one as this contemporary tale reaches back to the first Easter. Tressa is worried about the robin’s eggs outside her window. And even though Gran tells her to trust the one who watches robins and sparrows, Tressa knows everything from weather to raccoons could mean trouble. To get her mind off the eggs outside, Gran brings Tressa inside to make Easter eggs the Pennsylvania Dutch way: blowing out the insides, dyeing them, and fashioning paper into wings, heads, and tails for the egg bodies. It is while they are working that Gran tells Tressa a story. At the time of the Crucifixion, it was the small brown robin that pulled a thorn from Jesus’ crown to spare him pain; the blood from the wound gave the bird its red breast. The next day, the baby robins have hatched, and Tressa knows whom to thank for their safety. Drawing from Pennsylvania Dutch tradition, this warm story incorporates intergenerational affection, religious faith, and the appeal of legends. Sturdy artwork brings all the elements together.
