✰✰✰ Children everywhere expect the Easter Bunny to deliver brightly painted eggs every year on Easter Sunday. But one year the Easter Bunny overslept. Upon waking he wondered what to do with all the colored eggs. As the months went by, the Easter Bunny tried delivering the eggs on Mother’s Day, the Fourth of July, and Halloween. None of the children were interested. The poor bunny was very discouraged by the time Christmas arrived. Fortunately, Santa always knows the best way to set things right again.
The Bottom Line: This classic children’s book has been enjoyed and shared by several generations since it was first published in 1957. As the Easter Bunny tries again and again to deliver the eggs, children will learn the importance of never giving up. It’s also a great story for kids who tend to oversleep. The charming, retro illustrations will interest kids and adults alike. Recommended for kids in grades K – 3.
