A FREE Rechenka’s Eggs Activity + Learning Guide
One of our favorite Easter books is Rechenka’s Eggs written and illustrated by Patricia Polacco. The sweet story is about Babushka who is known for her exquisite hand-painted eggs. It’s rich with layers of learning to uncover about Ukrainian and Russian Easter traditions.
Unfortunately, you could miss these wonderful learning opportunities if you don’t know where to look! To help, we’ve created a simple activity and learning guide to go with the story.
You can explore and enjoy this sweet Easter folk tale on a deeper level with simple, intentional learning when you download our FREE printable: Rechenka’s Eggs Book Guide.
The Guide includes:
