A very cute book on a Easter tradition of hiding eggs.
  gregresch | May 30, 2016 |
Ollie is hopping. While Gossie, Gertie, BooBoo, and Peedie are gathering and dyeing eggs for Easter, Ollie is hopping. Ollie wants colorful eggs too, but he doesn't have time to gather or dye them. He's hopping, and he has a plan. When Gossie, Gertie, BooBoo, and Peedie look for the eggs, they can't find them. Ollie's friends search and hunt for the eggs until the trail leads them back to Ollie, who has a surprise for them.

The Bottom Line: This gentle story about friends is perfect for bedtime reading. It's short and sweet. The simple story and watercolor illustrations in soft pastel colors will appeal to little ones ages 2 - 5.

I love all of Dunrea's Ollie books and this one is no exception. The darling illustrations are spot-on in their expressions and so hard to resist. It amazes me how very simple the illustrations and words are, but how much meaning and emotion are on each page. In this volume, my favorite illustrations are of the varied ways Ollie moves his friends' eggs: with nose, feet and rump. I want to collect the entire series. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618532439, Hardcover)

Gossie, Gertie, BooBoo, and Peedie are all dyeing Easter eggs. Ollie wants Easter eggs too and he has a plan on how he'll get them! Humor and vibrant ink-and-watercolor illustrations fill Olivier Dunrea's holiday follow-up to Merry Christmas, Ollie. Dunrea again gets the preschooler emotions exactly right, capturing a range of holiday-inspired feelings, from Ollie's wiggly impatience to be included to the pure joy of the older goslings discovering that Ollie has arranged the best Easter egg hunt of all.

Includes sheet of colorful stickers!

Ollie watches the other goslings dye and hide eggs for the Easter hunt, but no one can find the eggs when Ollie decides that they are all for him.
