You know Easter is near, but "you're not always sure when it is coming even though you go to Sunday school." In fact, "it is only when Good Friday comes, and you have hot cross buns for tea, that you know for certain Easter will be the day after tomorrow." A little girl prepares for Easter by asking the chickens to lay her plenty of Easter eggs and dreaming "the loveliest dreams" of a wee fawn that makes her light as thistledown and takes her on a journey past shiny-coated rabbits, lambs frolicking among buttercups, and stardusted daffodils.
Beloved artist Tasha Tudor, creator of the Caldecott Honor book 1 Is One and more than 90 other picture books, looks through the eyes of a child at a favorite springtime holiday. With her trademark delicate watercolors and honey-sweet text, Tudor revisits her childhood memories and dreams of Easter. This 1941 classic pays tribute to the celebration of renewal while transporting readers to a gentle, joyful era.

From Publishers Weekly
Tasha Tudor's 1941 A Tale for Easter is handsomely reissued in a seven-inch-square format. Sentimental yet child-friendly, the book uses a second-person narration to evoke the pleasures of Easter as experienced in a long-ago rural idyll. "On Saturday you go and ask the chickens to lay you plenty of Easter eggs," writes Tudor; a watercolor decoration of a plump hen on its nest faces a page showing an angelic girl in bonnet, frock, apron and pantaloons slightly bent over in conversation with three chickens. The girl dreams of a "wee fawn," "rabbits smoothing their sleek coats" and lambs cavorting among buttercups. ( Feb.)
