If you haven't been to The King's English or The Printed Garden  I suggest you visit. You are in for a treat.

Pysanky Promise

A story about family traditions and the art of Ukrainian Easter eggs.

When Alena learns her grandmother's hands have grown too shaky to make pysanky (Ukrainian Easter eggs), she learns the art herself, hoping to heal her grandmother's heart. The book explains the method for making pysanky, as well as a bit about the history, symbolism and tradition behind the craft.

 I loved this book. It has something for all ages.  The pictures are bright and wonderful for small children. The pre-teen ages will love the history and stories about monsters. Teenagers will enjoy the symbolism of the colors and images.  Adults will understand the easy instructions of making Pysanky. Because making Pysanky can bring a family together with gifts to each other or friends it is the perfect book for the Easter season or any time of the year.
