In, The Easter Egg, Hoppi's friends and neighbors are all working on creating eggs for an Easter contest. Each friend he visits is making a different kind of egg. It is fun to see the different ways Hoppi's friends are making eggs. Some are predictable like the egg made of chocolate, but others are surprising, like an egg made of wood and a mechanical egg that has moving parts. Hoppi wants to make an egg to enter in the contest, but he gets sidetracked by kindness and becomes an Easter hero instead...at least mama Robin thinks so! You can listen to Hoppi's story right now!
After listening to the story, talk about some of the things that happened in it.
