    A Favorite

    My 2 year-old daughter absolutely LOVES this book. We have numerous Easter books, but this book is ALWAYS pulled out. I can't read Easter books without also reading this one. The lift-the-flap pages are nicely done with gorgeous full-page pictures. It incorporates spring as well as Easter. My daughter loves looking for the robin on each page as well as the rabbit. This is an excellent book!

    Easter Peek-a-Boo with Corduroy and His Friends

    The book is based on the Corduroy character created by Don Freeman. The 'bear's share' of the royalties go to the Don and Lydia Freeman Research Fund to support psychological research concerning children affected by cancer. Somewhere between 9 and 24 months, most children become fascinated with playing peek-a-boo. Books with flaps fit in with that favorite game. They provide the 'magic' of making something appear for your child, and as such are wonderful ways to create indelible learning experiences. This book has dozens of flaps for your child to peer behind. Usually, an animal is revealed. Some of the camouflage devices include plants, flowers, rocks, toys, doors, a hay stack, and food. The story has two themes. The first revolves around playing outdoors with friends during the spring as the weather improves. 'Spring has sprung, Corduroy!' The second theme concerns preparing for and participating in an Easter egg hunt. This book is a good background for preparing your child for her or his first hunt! At this age, children are usually not especially interested in other children so I liked the feature of the book emphasizing the fun of doing things with friends. This includes going to get the supplies, dying the eggs, and hunting for them. The eggs are left to be hidden by the Easter Bunny. The sentences are short and simple. This makes it easier for your child to memorize the story. As that process occurs, you can point to a word and ask your child to say the word. After a few misses, your child will begin to recognize one word from another. You can point to the words as you read them when you see that your child is starting to pay attention to the printing. The bright, clear illustrations also provide for focus-getting attention from young children. The story also provides lots of humor in the form of little surprises behind the flaps. The laughter that follows will help reinforce the learning here. You should also ask your child what he or she would like to do about Easter eggs. Depending on the emotional responses you get, you can plan for how to celebrate this Easter with your child. I recommend paper eggs until your child is past the 'squeezing everything' stage. Some of the best fun of being a parent is preparing for Easter egg hunts. Don't miss it if you celebrate Easter! 'Happy Easter, Corduroy!' And a very happy Easter to you and your family, too!
