Description - The Easter Egg by Jan Brett

Every year the Easter Rabbit arrives to pick up the eggs that the rabbits have been busy decorating. The rabbit who makes most beautiful gets to help hide the eggs on Easter morning. This year Hoppi is old enough to decorate an egg, and more than anything he wants to win. But everywhere he looks, he sees dazzling eggs from Miss Flora, Aunt Sassyfrass and others. Discouraged, Hoppi goes into the woods to think. Instead he finds a robin's egg that has fallen from its nest and a frantic Mother Robin flying overhead. Unselfishly, Hoppi takes over and keeps it warm and dry, day and night, until it is ready hatch. Hoppi's kindness doesn't go unnoticed by The Easter Rabbit who picks out the blue shell of the robin's egg as the most special egg that year.

Author Biography - Jan Brett

With over forty million books in print, Jan Brett is one of the nation's foremost author illustrators of children's books. Jan lives in a seacoast town in Massachusetts, close to where she grew up. During the summer her family moves to a home in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts.As a child, Jan Brett decided to be an illustrator and spent many hours reading and drawing. She says, "I remember the special quiet of rainy days when I felt that I could enter the pages of my beautiful picture books. Now I try to recreate that feeling of believing that the imaginary place I'm drawing really exists. The detail in my work helps to convince me, and I hope others as well, that such places might be real." As a student at the Boston Museum School, she spent hours in the Museum of Fine Arts. "It was overwhelming to see the room-size landscapes and towering stone sculptures, and then moments later to refocus on delicately embroidered kimonos and ancient porcelain," she says. "I'm delighted and surprised when fragments of these beautiful images come back to me in my painting." Travel is also a constant inspiration. Together with her husband, Joe Hearne, who is a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Jan visits many different countries where she researches the architecture and costumes that appear in her work. "From cave paintings to Norwegian sleighs, to Japanese gardens, I study the traditions of the many countries I visit and use them as a starting point for my children's books."
