Lovely Images of Easter and Spring! Apr 18, 2007
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.
