Rechenka's Eggs - By Patricia Polacco
This is the beautiful story of Babushka, an elderly lady living near the town of Moskva, who one day finds a goose that has been shot by hunters. Babushka takes care of the goose until it is better, and Rechenka repays her with something wonderful. Some Russian words are included, increasing the reader's foreign vocabulary. Everything in the illustrations is bright and colorful except for the faces of the people, which always remain pencil sketched and not filled in.
