Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-- Easter delights--egg-dyeing and hunting, blooming potted bulbs, new clothes, the Bunny, and goody-filled baskets--as well as a centerfold of newborn animals and newly hatched birds--are winningly depicted in flat perspectives and a warm palette. A cheery farm family of young parents and four children celebrates the holiday in this board book, useful for identification of secular Easter symbols. It's better illustrated than similar fare, and doesn't attempt any theogical explanations. --Patricia Pearl, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Images of Easter and Spring! April 17 2007
By Healthy By Nature - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a sturdy, durable board book that contains simple yet lovely illustrations of seasonal novelties such as baby animals born in Spring, Easter lilies and bonnets, the Easter Bunny bringing baskets, and the whole family coloring eggs together and participating in an Easter egg hunt on the farm. It takes a quiet, simple, secular approach to presenting Easter and Spring concepts, and, therefore, it is perfectly appropriate for any young child. The emphasis of this book is more on illustration than on text or storyline which is fine because it elicits conversation and the opportunity to teach an infant/toddler about the images depicted. My son just had his second Easter and he still enjoys the illustrations -- specifically finding and pointing out all the eggs and bunnies throughout the book. The only complaint I have is that I wish this book was longer! It positively oozes old-fashioned charm and is sure to please both children and parents alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely book April 21 2009
By KSDK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
This was a lovely little book for an infant/toddler to introduce them to the Easter customs. It does not touch on the real meaning of Easter, but I don't know that it is easy for a child this young to understand anyway. Simple, bright pastel colored drawings.

By Carrie O'Neill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
Our 3.5 month old son really looked at this book...which is saying a lot at that age! We recommend it as a good book for the very littlest "reader."

I bought this book for my 12 month old daughter. It really is a lovely simple book with beautiful pictures and simple words. She will happily sit and look at the book herself. A nice easter gift for any child.
