The Golden Egg Book

Margaret Wise Brown 1947
illustrated by Leonard Weisgard

Yesterday we colored eggs. Pink, yellow, blue, and even some we marbleized.  We tried dying in onion skins and purple cabbage with beautiful results. 

I always see this book on the display table at the bookstore around Eastertime.  I guess it's considered a classic. In this little story a bunny finds an egg and wonders what's inside of it. (Charlotte guessed the elephant!)  It turns out to be a cute duck who becomes his friend.  I especially like how it has rich full page vintage illustrations.
