Baby Touch and Feel Easter Bunny
on April 23, 2011
ISBN 0312505809 - Manufactured in China. Age range not stated but "BABY Touch and Feel" seems like a clue. Board book with touch-able insets, 12 pages. Marked "Paper used is from sustainable forests." Published by St. Martin's Press in 2009. "This product has been tested and conforms to the U.S. safety standard of ASTM F963 07" No author or photographer mentioned on the book.
Cute little baby animals - a bunny, a fawn, a raccoon, a hedgehog, a lamb and ducklings - are introduced in short rhymes. The photos have small textured insets that are touch-able.
I'm sorry, but the people behind this title should be ashamed of themselves, and they should be held responsible for false advertising. Other than the word "Easter" on the cover, this book has AB-SO-LUTE-LY nothing to do with Easter. The bunny? It's a bunny. It's not bringing anyone any baskets or hiding any eggs or even bringing you some message about a previously dead guy come back to life. Nope, it's just a bunny. And it's a really CUTE bunny - but it ain't the Easter bunny.
Can you tell I'm mad? I'm mad. I bought this thing a little while ago and put it aside for tomorrow (tomorrow being Easter). Tonight, I picked it up to leaf through it and there it was. Evidence that I've been had, tricked, hoodwinked, lied to. This is like pulling the foil off a Cadbury Egg and finding that it's an actual egg, future child of Henrietta and Hank Cadbury. Or breakfast. But not a yummy, sugar-laden chocolate ball full of yummy, sugar-laden goop. If that happens tomorrow, I will probably have some sort of convulsion.
Buy this book for the touch and feel aspect - that's a good thing that kids should be exposed to - but don't waste your money thinking you're getting something Easter-y because you're NOT.
