K-3 RL 2.7
lives on a small farm in Russia. One of
Masha's chores is to collect the eggs. She
loves the feel of the smooth shells and her mother
encourages her to learn to paint the eggs.
Masha quickly learns how to paint the eggs and
really enjoys doing it. One day when Masha is
in the forest, she meets a lovely Firebird.
The Firebird is afraid that the evil Baba Yaga will
steal the four eggs that represent the world and
will be able to rule the world. The Firebird
asks Masha to paint the eggs so Bab Yaga can't find
them. The first egg represents Earth.
Masha does such a fine job, the Firebird asks her
to paint the next egg. When she is finished
with the last egg, something awful happens.
Masha's mother accidently sells the egg to Baba
Yaga. Will Masha be able to get the egg
back? Find out in MASHA AND THE FIREBIRD by
