This board book features Spot and his friend, Helen the Hippo, as they go on a lift-the-flap easter egg hunt. The text is playful and engaging, with lots of questions that our little one gets to answer as she lifts each flap. I love how some of the flaps show them finding hidden eggs, while others show something different, like a mouse with its cheese. It’s a fun introduction to the world of Spot (and his 100+ books!), and to the goals and fun of finding decorated eggs on Easter morning.

The darling images of the famous story of David and Goliath are a highlight of this charming board book. It tells the story simply, accurately, and clearly. The illustrations are so cute! I love the muted yet colorful palette, the 2D look, and the darling little details like the caterpillar watching agape as David reaches for a stone while Goliath draws his spear. This is a charming retelling of this foundational story.

Before a baby develops object permanence, what could be more fun than playing peekaboo with them? Here, our little one gets to play peekaboo with the Very Hungry Caterpillar! Here, there are colorful Easter baskets that fit the fun, cutout pages of the board book. The text is playful and fun, and the illustrations “hide” a mini version of the caterpillar alongside Carle’s colorful cutouts for our little one to discover. The book is a great introduction to Easter treats, toys, and baskets, with a fun interactive aspect, too.

This is an engaging and fun-to-read board book about an easter egg hunt and different things you can do with your chocolate eggs, like throwing “your eggs around and make a licky sticky mess!” The illustrations are fun, with the idiosyncratic style used in the illustrations in Dahl’s “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and other books. The book features silly, invented words, like the style of Dr. Seuss. There are five two-page spreads, two lift-up flaps, and a cutout hole to reveal the eggs found on the next page.

This is a brief, yet delightful, board book featuring colorful, updated illustrations of Peter Rabbit and friends, where we go on a different sort of Easter morning hunt, beyond just Easter eggs. On each two-page-spread, a different character comes across various baby bunnies, ducklings, lambs, and more. The final page has a lift up flap — with a pop-up revealing Peter eating a radish. I love the illustrations, fun writing, and colorful way that it highlights how spring is a time for rebirth, tied to all the baby animals we see on each page. For those of us distant from agrarian life, this may be a part of Easter that is lost to our children. This charming book (which comes with a deluxe/larger cover) helps bring those happy occasions to the fore. It’s also a fun way to introduce our little ones to Beatrix Potter’s beloved stories and creatures.

This is a fun — and funny — book based around a dialog from the reader/narrator and bunny who insists that he is NOT the Easter bunny. On each two-page spread, the narrator asks an increasingly frustrated (not easter) bunny why the things he’s doing seems so suspiciously easter-y. Each page features this cheeky dialog, alongside clear, outlined illustrations that seem a little inspired by Hello Kitty, but with a bit more sass. Yet, as the extended story continues, we discover that sometimes when a bunny looks like a “duck,” quacks like a duck, and swims like a duck… Well, you get the idea. And my kids really enjoy reading and rereading the playful dialog in this well-written book!

This comical book is a truly delightful introduction to the (now, nine book long series of) Grumpy Monkey books, featuring the histrionic Jim Panzee who, in this story, is confused about the other jungle animals telling him he has “spring fever” — which turns out not to be an illness — while they ask him to calm down (to no avail). The dialog is clever and fun, and the illustrations are so engaging and cute yet funny, that the book’s fun is far greater than the sum of its parts. The story introduces the different secular, yet heart-warming elements of an Easter celebration.

Our daughter, at the ripe old age of three, once told me that, although I often told her how cute she was, would disagree, saying (loudly), “I’m not cute! Cute means little, and I’m big!” Here, this darling book features a cute little bunny who protests that she’s more than just cute, showing how she can also be brave, and helpful, and clever. It’s not until a cute little chick comes along that they work out how to be their best without worrying too much what others think. And what’s wrong with being cute, anyway? The illustrations are absolutely charming and the story is one that every little one can relate to (including my little ones).
