Author and illustration, Alice Lindstrom, has produced this exquisite book, Beautiful Eggs and we’ve loved reading it this weekend. Beautiful Eggs celebrates egg decorating around the world. From beeswax drawing in Ukraine, using colourful straws in the Czech Republic to using washi paper in Japan. There is even an egg stencil at the back of the book which you can use to create your own beautiful eggs.
Alice has accompanied her writings with bold and bright coloured illustration all from cut paper. It’s an utterly exquisite book.
To accompany the book the publisher, Scribble Books has developed a set of teaching notes with more delightful activities to do with your children. You can find it here.
Beautiful Eggs is available from all good bookstores and from the Book Depository online.
