Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K–Ann Estelle wants a hat full of ribbons and flowers that would make her the Queen of Easter at the neighborhood parade. Instead, her mother buys her a plain straw hat. Disappointed, the child leaves it outside on the porch. Days later, when her family discovers a robins nest inside it, Ann Estelle seizes the opportunity to trim last years hat, decorating it with a nest and three blue candy eggs. The secular nature of an Easter parade is juxtaposed with the hatching of the robins eggs, making this a book that simply celebrates spring. The highly defined line drawings are filled with vibrant color and warmth. A border of Easter eggs runs across the top of each page, while the bottom border changes motifs–hats, birds, flowers, and hatching eggs. A card-stock paper-doll cutout of Ann Estelle is included.–Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI

Cute Kids Book! May 26 2006
By L Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Ann Estelle has always wanted a beautiful hat for Easter covered with ribbons and flowers. Instead, her mother gets her a traditional, classic hat with only one blue ribbon. Try as she might, Ann Estelle simply cannot like the hat so she thinks nothing of leaving it on her front porch one afternoon. A few days later, her mother discovers the hat, but with a surprise. There is a robin inside! The hat turns into a beautiful Easter surprise for Ann Estelle, and she discovers that having the best Easter hat doesn't always have to do with how many ribbons or flowers adorn it.

I rarely review children's books, but picked this book up on a whim as I am a huge fan of Mary Engelbreit. I love her colorful, fun illustrations! This book was cute, had adorable pictures, and a great storyline. I read it to my 5-year-old son, and he enjoyed the story even though it was about a girl. This book is a beautiful, fun read.

Enjoy!

Sweet book for Spring May 27 2014

As usual, the illustrations in this Mary Engelbreit story are wonderfully creative and detailed. The story is simple and fun, all about Ann Estelle and her quest for the perfect Easter Bonnet. It would be fun to read the book and then decorate an Easter hat with a little girl you love. I am happy to add this to my holiday collection.
