Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A delightful addition for holiday shelves." School Library Journal
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- In her sixth holiday book for young children, Watson depicts the activities of her now-familiar family as they make traditional preparations for Easter. Hot-cross buns are baked, an egg tree is set up, eggs are gathered and decorated, and the Easter bunny's arrival is anticipated. The family walks to church all dressed up, just as the whole world seems to be. Grandma and Grandpa join the family for dinner and games in the afternoon, but the best Easter surprise of all is the birth of five kittens, found behind the couch. The simple text, within a rectangle on most pages, is complemented by traditional rhymes or poems set apart in decorated squares of colors, adding interest and balance. Illustrations of ink and pastel shades are bustling with activity and details of large family life in a small village. A delightful addition for holiday shelves. --Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE
