The Easter Chickby Geraldine Elschner, Alexandra Junge (Illustrator)
Hilda the hen fusses lovingly over her beautiful egg. But weeks go by and her baby still doesn't hatch. Then one day, a tiny voice coming from inside the egg asks, "Mother, when is Easter?"Hilda doesn't know for sure. But Hilda's little chick wants to hatch on Easter Sunday, so Hilda makes it her mission to find the answer. A doting mother and her determined baby - with some advice from a wise owl - create an Easter dream come true in this delightful holiday story. Adding to the fun is an Easter bunny hunt, with rabbits hidden in many of the pictures for sharp-eyed youngsters to find.
