This is a fun story on the traditions and celebrations of Easter. A bunny determined to be the one to deliver all baskets with eggs to children each year. What started as an old couple with help from a bunny, ended up being “the Easter Bunny”, delivering every year. The illustrations are fun to follow and goof support to the text. ( )

In a little town a round old couple passes the time by making Easter eggs. Their little white rabbit watches intently as the eggs are hollowed out and dyed. Then the couple makes chocolate eggs and weaves baskets to place them in. When spring arrives and everyone says "Happy Easter," the old couple delivers the filled baskets to the village children.

The little rabbit watches this every year, but one year the old couple fall asleep with work still to be done. The little white rabbit steps in by weaving baskets and delivering them to the children. Little by little the rabbit takes on more responsibility. Soon he becomes known to the children as The Easter Bunny. With the legend of the Easter Bunny growing, the little white rabbit realizes that he must find a new a new secret location to work from. With his rabbit friends to help, the little white rabbit continues bringing baskets of joy to children everywhere.

The Bottom Line: Author Katherine Tegen wrote this original story to answer her son's questions about the Easter bunny and his interesting job. This charming and heartwarming tale will answer your child's questions too. Illustrator Sally Anne Lambert's soft pastel toned watercolors are a treat as well. This picture book is recommended for kids ages 3 and up. The book's themes of kindness, giving, and teamwork make this the perfect bedtime story for springtime.

This is one of the best Easter books we have ever checked out and I plan to use it again, for years to come. I tagged it as religious, but it makes no mention of the Christian beliefs pertaining to Easter. There is a church shown on just about every page, and the message of kindness is in line with the teachings of Jesus, so more religious families can certainly apply it, and those who aren't religious won't feel attacked with propaganda at the same time.
