Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chester the Easter Bunny decorates six Easter eggs.  He chooses the colors of the rainbow: red, green, yellow, orange, purple, and blue.  He then hides them for all his friends to find.  On Easter, his friends discover his beautiful eggs and they all celebrate the special day together. 

This cheerful book reinforces color identification and counting, and celebrates the Easter holiday.

Review:

"Smythe follows Snowbear's Christmas Countdown with an Easter-themed introduction to color, as Chester the rabbit decorates and hides six eggs for his friends. Chester embellishes each egg according to its planned hiding spot: a red egg is made to look like a bird and hidden in a nest, while an orange egg is adorned with daisies and hearts to match the tea set in which it's hidden. All the patterning and the detailed indoor and outdoor scenes allow Smythe's cut-paper artwork to shine; Chester is 'tickled pink' when a rainbow highlights his eggs after they are found, and readers should feel much the same. Ages 2 — 5." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
