Owen is delighted! His Easter basket is full of sweet treats. Jelly beans, gumdrops, buttercream eggs, a big chocolate bunny, and a little marshmallow chick. He happily gobbles each treat one by one and chews with a mouth full of yumminess. Standing tall in his purple plaid pants and baby-blue shirt, Owen proudly proclaims each sweet "my favorite." When Owen reaches for the last Easter treat, he takes a moment to really look at it. The marshmallow chick is the same color as his favorite yellow blanket. Instead of gobbling the sweet confection, Owen happily plays with the chick all day. At bedtime, he places it on his toy shelf and kisses it goodnight, saying, "My favorite."
The renowned Kevin Henkes fills this charming board book with springtime pastels, simple text, and much love. Watching Owen celebrate the splendor of his delicious treats is pure joy. Henkes excels at creating adorable illustrations with no fuss. Owen's sheer delight in his treats will inspire genuine smiles. His sincere affection for the sugary chick is a delightful surprise -- and another sweet stroke of genius from the talented Henkes. (Amy Barkat)
