PreS-Gr 1-Written in rhyming couplets, this counting book brings back the kids from 10 Trick-or-Treaters (2005) and 10 Trim-the-Tree'ers (2010, both Knopf). It opens with a fluffy white Easter bunny waking to hide a basket of eggs. The 10 eager children search high and low, inside and out. Baby is the first to find an egg. "Baby crawls across the floor./What is that by the mouse door?" As each child meets with success, the eggs are tallied in a right-hand sidebar of the spread. The children track down all of the eggs in time to attend the Easter parade in their festive holiday hats. Flat cartoon illustrations feature grinning, round-faced children and a palette of pastel pinks, yellows, greens, and blues. For a more vibrant celebration of this Easter tradition, Jan Brett's The Easter Egg (Putnam, 2010) and Michael Garland's The Great Easter Egg Hunt (Dutton, 2005) are better selections.-Linda L.

The creators of 10 Trick-or-Treaters (2005) and 10 Trim-the-Tree�ers (2010) tackle Easter in this simple, appealing counting book. �Baby crawls across the floor. / What is that by the mouse door?� One egg, of course, getting its own spot on a block of white on the verso page. As the book continues in simple rhyme, more children join the hunt, eventually finding 10 eggs. Davick�s candy-colored pictures have plenty of charm as kids of mixed ethnicities run through the house and gambol on the lawn. This will get children excited about Easter, the advent of spring, and perhaps even counting. Preschool. --Ilene Cooper
