Bunny's Easter Egg
Anne Mortimer, . . HarperCollins/Tegen, $12.99 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-06-136664-2
Though she has one egg left, Bunny is too tired to hide it, so she puts it in her basket. When it starts to crack, she leaps out: “I can't sleep here. It's far too busy.” À la Goldilocks, no matter where she tries to sleep, it's never just right: nestling with a porcupine is “too painful” and a boat “too wet!” Finally, she returns to her basket to find a new friend—a yellow duck that has hatched. Finely textured, realistic flowers and animals lend the story a classic Easter feel. Ages 4–7.
