Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sheilah Egan
When Little Bunny smells "sunshine and warm breezes and clear flowing water," he asks beaver about it. Beaver answers that it "smells like Easter." Then Little Bunny needs to know "What is Easter?" Beaver announces that it is a basket and that he would make one for Little Bunny if he could have some help gathering branches to make his lodge bigger. So it goes throughout this simple and sweet explanation that Easter is "new life." As Little Bunny seeks explanations, each animal he meets gives him another part of the answer in exchange for a little help from the questing bunny. The reader begins to understand that each of the animals (beaver, mouse, woodchuck, and bird) needs help to provide for the impending birth of a new generation of life. Little Bunny ends up giving the bird the basket filled with new grass and berries to use for a nest. Having sacrificed his new found treasures, Little Bunny is still wondering about Easter when he is introduced to the animals' offspring—new life is the answer he has been seeking. Without religiosity, this is an homage to spring and new beginnings. The soft watercolors are a sweet enhancement to the gentle story line. The message of needing and offering help and then receiving insight is one that all children could take to heart. This book will serve well to introduce spring and to discuss, for those so inclined, the meaning of Easter on a religious level. Reviewer: Sheilah Egan

    *Whimsical. *Delightful. *Adorable. Bunny is trying to figure out what Easter is and thinks he has found the answer several times, then realizes there maybe more to Easter than he thought. *Great storyline and color illustrations for youth in the picture book age group. *Nice for explaining Easter as connected to the arrival of Spring. This picture book will work well during read-aloud time or for reading before a nap or at bedtime, since it is easy-to-read and understand for the picture book age group.
