Everyone in Mariam's family is busy preparing for the Easter celebration. Mariam wants to help, but she is too little, or is she? See how she surprises everyone in her village.

This book is a celebration of Armenian culture and the traditions associated with Easter. Margaret Wasielewski's pastel drawings beautifully depict the Armenians of the Ottoman Empire in the early 1900s. At Easter, they dressed in colorful costumes and paraded through their villages. They visited with friends and neighbors, feasted on elaborate dishes such as pilaf, shish kebab, cheoreg, and paklavah. Competition rallied in egg-fighting contests. The winner was the person holding an uncracked egg at the end of the day.
