Children's LiteratureThat cute little puppy Spot and his friend Helen the hippo take their Easter baskets and hunt for eggs both outside and inside the house. Readers will lift the flaps to see where the eggs are hidden. Glimpses of the Easter Bunny can be found on each page as Spot and Helen search. The vivid colors of the springtime setting and Spot's Mom arranging cut daffodils will appeal to toddlers. Hill maintains lots of white space on each page so young readers can focus on Spot. Spot's curious preschool behavior and his thoughtfulness at the end make this appropriate for its audience The flaps in this paperback edition are not as thick as the board book and will require a gentle approach. Similar in set up to the other lift-the-flap books about Spot and his adventures, this will appeal to current Spot fans and will help gain new ones. 2004 (orig 1988), Puffin Books/ Penguin Young Readers, Ages 2 to 5.
