Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This is the first book in my Night Before series - the one that started it all! 
I wrote this story because I love Easter, and when I was a kid, waiting for the Easter Bunny to come was just as exciting as waiting for Santa Claus. So I wrote a bedtime story for those kids like me.

About the Author

More About the Author

Natasha Wing was born in Connecticut and now lives in Fort Collins, Colorado. After graduating from Arizona State University she then worked in advertising for a number of years. It wasn't until 1991 that she decided to write children's books. Luckily she sold her first book within six months and has been writing children's books and articles ever since. Some of her books have even ended up on bestseller lists, including the wildly popular The Night Before series.

"I'm curious about many things- people, holidays, underdogs, little known historic figures - and translate my excitement for a topic into books for kids to enjoy. Story ideas are popping into my head all the time, so you never know what my next book will be. But that's what's so fun about writing."

Easy to read and holds a child's attention.

Written in the same style as The Night Before Christmas, this is a book that kids will love to have read to them and will enjoy reading.

We have the Halloween version of this book that my son loves so I decided to buy this one for Easter this year in his basket.

A charming Easter tale sure to delight young and old alike. Children will love looking for the eggs hidden in the pictures and listening to the rhythmic language; adults will smile at the new and original twists on this Easter time take-off of the well-loved Twas the Night Before Christmas. The perfect Easter basket gift!

My son received this as an Easter Gift for his first Easter, and we are still reading it three Easters later. He loves to hear it, and I love to read it to him. This makes a great addition to your Easter Basket!

I ordered this book for my grandson for Easter. I also have "The Night Before Thanksgiving". Since my 5-year old grandson liked that one so much, I decided to order the Easter version. The "story" is similar to "The Night Before Christmas".

This is a great preschool read-aloud book. I had a difficult time finding an age appropriate and fun book to read to a preschool class. This book was perfect.

Initially, I was surprised to see this book was similar to the Night Before Christmas, but after reading it several times to a delighted 2 1/2 year old, am very happy I made the purchase. It is an easy read, and not really like the other book referred to above. The pictures are nice and colorful, without being too overwhelming - the author and artist did a good job with this one. Also, there is an entire series regarding other special days, including The Night Before Preschool, which I intend to purchase soon.
