Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Easter is a time of flowers, fancy clothes, bunny ears, chocolate bunnies, and Easter baskets. Unfortunately, the author does not tie these various delights together in any way and the book is clumsy. Each double- page spread has four lines of rhyming text with a bright color photograph to illustrate the words. In a few instances the rhymes are awkward and they refer to events or things that really would not appeal to many children. How many little boys like to get dressed up in a suit or like to be told that they "sure look cute"? 2002, Cartwheel Books,
