Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Mother Mouse bedecked in her Easter bonnet takes her three children dressed in jackets and ties outside for an egg hunt. The two older ones begin to search right away but the youngest gets sidetracked. He thoroughly enjoys picking flowers ("Sniff! Whiff!/ Spring! Fling!"), rolling in the mud, swinging on a branch, and boating on a leaf. When Mother Mouse gathers her three boys, the youngest is upset because he is the only one with no eggs. He runs away but happens upon an egg that cracks and reveals "An Easter friend." Cushman's illustrations in springtime colors extend a spare but energetic text that is full of action words. The expressive faces of the little mice will engage the reader. There are a number of imaginative touches in the interior of the house, such as the pencil that serves as a curtain rod and the postage stamp that is a picture on the wall. A nice little holiday story with a reassuring premise for young listeners. 2003, Clarion,

The Easter mice are excited about the egg hunt. They are hopping and running around to find as many eggs as possible. Each mouse runs and finds an egg. One is found behind a tulip, one behind a daffodil. Some are spotted and some are striped. While hunting for eggs, the mice are having fun playing and running in a mud puddle, swinging with a lady bug, racing a robin, and playing leapfrog. When mama mouse stops and counts all the eggs, she discovers one of the little mice has not found an egg. The little mouse leaves feeling sad and accidentally stumbles down a hill, bumping into an Easter egg. This yellow egg does not look like the other eggs. However, this egg is the best egg because of the surprise the mice get when it cracks open and they meet a new friend. Children who celebrate Easter will treasure the colorful illustrations that enhance the story. Teachers can use this delightful story in their classroom to assist students learning how to read with this level 1 reader. This book is part of the “Holiday Mice” series. Reviewer: Cathi I. White; Ages 5 to 7.

I was so upset when my daughter opened this book and everything was split between pages and doubled and most of it made no sense at all. I could not believe barnes and noble is charging ten dollars for this piece of junk....complete waste of money and not worth even one dollar...save your money for a better easter book. And just so you know this is the first review I have ever done that was in regards to a bad book.
