Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Softly smudged colored-pencil illustrations in an array of Easter egg hues warm this affectionate holiday tale. On Easter morning, after receiving a basket from her parents, Little Bunny is eager to surprise her family with the three baskets she has made herself and hidden outdoors. A hunt pursues, clues are given and the baskets are finally spied up in a tree. Then at bedtime, it's Little Bunny's turn for a surprise when Baby Brother leaves an Easter treat under her pillow. Modesitt and Spowart (Mama, If You Had a Wish) keep the action simple?the prose hews to a solid structure, and the artwork depends on a minimal use of line. The tenderness of the text shows up in the art, in Spowart's radiant blending of colors; her shading technique gives the bunnies a soft and inviting look. An endnote offers instructions for decorating eggs with paint and glitter. Just right for tucking into an Easter basket. Ages 2-6.

From School Library Journal

PreS?An unpretentious and simple display of family love. On Easter morning, Little Bunny and her family search for their baskets, which are hidden both inside and outside the house. Simple pencil drawings done in traditional Easter colors?pinks, lavenders, greens, and yellows?complement the sugary text. The uncluttered layout will appeal to the toddler and preschool set. Directions on how to make an Easter basket complete the package. Preschoolers will enjoy this brief but suspenseful story.?Olga R. Barnes, Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County, NC

Format: Hardcover
The synopses of this book accurately describe the story line and pictures but I have to add that this story captures the sweetness of the love that can exist in a family so beautifully. The love between the siblings is particularly charming.

I love this book because of the sweet family message that it gives. Little Bunny is greatly looking forward to Easter, but not just because of the Easter basket she'll receive. This year, little Bunny has secretly prepared Easter baskets of her own, for her mother, father, and baby brother. So after she has the fun of finding her own Easter basket, she has even more fun giving clues to her family, to help them find her gift. And at the end of the day, there is one more surprise, and this one is for Little Bunny from her baby brother! This loving little story is illustrated with soft pastels, and warmly celebrates the joy of giving.
