Easter Babies: A Springtime Counting Book
Joy N. Hulme, , illus. by Dan Andreasen. . Sterling, $12.95 (24pp) ISBN 978-1-4027-6352-6
This Easter counting book features cheery pictures of baby animals on a farm. One newborn foal stands “on wobbly legs,” while a nest of five baby birds screech with “wide open bills,” and nine newborn kittens curl up on a pile of hay. There's a sweet, old-fashioned feel to Andreasen's paintings, as 11 children search for Easter eggs in a park—“racing, chasing, swinging”—and a final scene shows church bells ringing across a quaint village. Ages 3–up.
