We were in The Raven Book Store and saw a new children's book by one of our favorite author/illustrators, Jan Brett—The Easter Egg. If you aren't familiar with her books, you need to check them out. Every one of her stories is a keepsake!
From the author's website:
Time for rabbits to decorate eggs for the Easter Rabbit. This year Hoppi is old enough to join in, and if he can just make the winning egg, he will be the one to help the Easter Rabbit on Easter. But Hoppi hasn't decided what kind of egg to make. And as he hops along and sees one fantastic egg after another, he begins to wonder how he can compete.
Hoppi goes into the woods to think about his egg, and just when he figures out that he only has to make the best egg he can, his plans take a most unexpected turn.
Jan Brett's lovable bunny hero and her remarkable Easter Rabbit will enchant readers as the pore over exquisite illustrations filled with dazzling eggs and their gifted makers - Flora Bunny, Aunt Sassyfrass, Hans Vanderabbit and others.
An unforgettable Easter story for all ages!
