Notes from Melody and Emily’s mom:
This is a sweet story of how some robins protect their young before they hatch. The girl in the story learn to trust in God’s compassion for his creation as she awaits the arrival of the baby birds in the nest outside the window. Gran knew enough to be faithful in God’s plans. While they wait, she teaches Tressa how to make Easter birds (oschter-foggel) and tells Tressa of a legend of how the robin became red-breasted because of its compassion for someone in pain.
