In Davick and the late Schulman's third holiday counting title, 10 impish children hunt for eggs inside and outside a purple house that could pass for Barbie's starter home ("Pam looks in the tulip pots,/ Finds an egg with polka dots"). Schulman has fun with her rhymed couplets ("And now for something really delicious,/ A big chocolate egg for sweet Aloysius"), and readers can count the eggs that accumulate on the right side of each spread. An energetic Easter morning read. Ages 3–8. (Feb.)
