Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2 - An elderly couple's petite white rabbit observes, assists, then eventually takes over the task of weaving baskets, coloring eggs, concocting candy, and delivering the gifts to village children. When the man and woman become too old to continue their labors, the bunny moves the operation to the woods, where he works inside a hollow tree, assisted by other rabbit friends. Tegen's text teems with sensory details: the eggs were "...the color of daffodils and of soft new leaves and of robins' eggs and of violets." Lambert's watercolors make merry with spring's pastels, providing detailed images of the cozy cottage kitchen as well as the rabbit den. However, some children may be concerned when the rabbit preserves the tasks' secrecy by leaving the humans when they are too frail to carry on. Nevertheless, this visually splendid story with folktale rhythms makes a good choice for holiday sharing. - Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 1. The story of the Easter Bunny is revealed in this eye-opening exploration of the legendary rabbit's propensity for annual springtime egg coloration and basket distribution. It wasn't always the Easter Bunny who dyed eggs and wove baskets for the children--it was a round old couple who lived in a snug little house. Their pet white rabbit, however, always watched their preparations closely. One Easter morning, the old couple sleeps in, so the rabbit takes over. In time, the children discover they have the Easter Bunny to thank for their gifts. His secret identity cracked, the bunny leaves the old couple to set up shop in the shadow-filled wood, with the help of plenty of furry friends. This charming tale is so matter-of-factly told, readers will be wanting the truth about the Tooth Fairy next. Lambert's cozy paintings of Easter-time in a small English village are as lovely and inviting as a sugar egg. Karin Snelson

I really love a good childeren's book and what I really love is to find out how the author came about creating /telling their story. Well, this story has an interesting background in that the author wrote it because he son wondered about the Easter Bunny, where did he come from and how did he get the job of being the Easter Bunny and with all those questions became this very book! This is a really cute story of the Easter Bunny's early years.

There is a family of a little round older couple who have a white bunny and during the winter months the couple make baskets, chocolate eggs and dye and decorate eggs for the children in the town. Every year the little bunny watches and begins to help out... eventually to take over the "family business" completely because his parents had grown much older and his secret of where the Easter bunny lived was getting out among the children in his town. So, with great big waves from his family the Easter Bunny leaves home and find a nice hollow tree where he and some of his friends make the baskets, chocolates and eggs.

I think this is a very cute book, the illustrations are soft and beautiful. The story is one that once read will become a family tradition to read the night or week before the Easter Bunny comes to visit your home just like the T'was the Night Before Christmas! Enjoy!!!

This book is not "the true" Easter story by any means, but it will please people who are looking for an Easter story that focuses less on "getting" (as many popular character Easter stories do)and more on the spirit of doing for others. A good story to share with a group of children, suited for ages 3 - 8.

Beautiful illustrations in a story that focuses on giving and helping others rather than on the religious aspects of the holiday make this a good choice as a read aloud for a primary classroom in a public school.

This is a wonderful book to add to your collection, and my kids and I highly recommend it. A sweet story about an old couple and their pet rabbit , and how they worked hard to make Easter a happy occasion for all the little boys and girls. Until one day the old couple did not get out of bed, and the little pet rabbit finished their chores and delivered the beautiful Easter baskets to all the children in the village. The children really understand this book, and enjoyed Easter so much more this year.

The Easter Bunny left my son this book last year and we've read it countless times in the year since. The artwork is wonderful, the story concise yet thorough, and the characters endearing. It's a story you will never get tired of reading and your kids will never tire of hearing!

I ordered this for my twin grandsons, aged 6. The tell me when they think a book is "too baby" now. (They are absolutely growing up too quickly for me. :( ) When I read this to them, they enjoyed every page and wanted it read again. That's a compliment that isn't easy to come by! ;)

It was awesome! The Easter Bunny and his crew were magical. They made so many cool eggs. I am so happy to know how the Easter Bunny got started.
