How Do You Know It's Easter?

Dian Curtis Regan. Little Simon, $7.99 (0pp) ISBN 978-0-689-86155-0

Numerous Easter riddles await readers in the novelty book How Do You Know It's Easter? A Springtime Lift-the-Flap Book by Dian Curtis Regan, illus. by Fumi Kosaka. After reading hints on each page (""We grow tall in the spring to color the world. Gather our blooms for your room! What are we?"") and spying visual clues, children can lift gatefold flaps that reveal the answer. Not all of the answers will be intuitive to young readers, however (such as the answer to the above, ""Lilies, daisies, and daffodils""). Kosaka's textured, pastel illustrations bring subdued charm to the text.
