PreS–It is Easter on the farm, and all the animals are on the lookout for the elusive Easter Bunny with a basket of candy and eggs. But with so many animals around, the Easter Bunny is difficult to find! One creature after the next is featured on the pages, but despite wearing colorful bunny ears, none of them is exactly right. Small children and their caregivers will adore this Easter board book. Written in rhyming lines, each couplet describes the noise a farm animal makes, while leaving the final word hanging. This invites conversation and deduction on the part of the reader to determine which animal sound is coming next. Friendly, cartoon-like illustrations give each of the animals an approachable quality, and these visuals aid in the deduction of the answer. The images are the focus, drawing in young readers both with the vibrant, spring-like colors and with the details found on each page. Together, the playful font of the text and the cheerful illustrations make this story a delight to share.
VERDICT This rhyming board book is a charming addition to Easter collections for very young children.
