Easter Baskets Filled With Reading Fun
The Night Before Easter
Fun Read aloud for the Easter Holiday
Natasha Wing's The Night Before Easter will be a delight for your child to find in their Easter basket this year. It is the perfect size for those baskets and is a great choice for filling a basket with fun reading along with candy. Parents are always looking for something to replace all of that Easter candy and small books meet that need.
The Night Before Easter is written in a form similar to another holiday favorite for the Christmas holidays. Young children will quickly recognize the similarity to The Night Before Christmas. The Easter bunny replaces Santa and a wheelbarrow full of Easter eggs and goodies replace the sleigh. The text is written in similar rhymes. Visions of jelly beans replace the sugarplums. The Easter bunny's antics with yard tools will have young children laughing. A berry replaces Santa's cherry on the Easter bunny's nose. The Easter bunny goes about the task of hiding beautiful eggs for the egg hunt. Finally, all is done and the early morning rooster crows, letting the Easter Bunny know that it is time to disappear until next year.
Kathy Cour contributes her talent as an illustrator with her delightful art work for The Night Before Easter. This fun holiday story was published by Grosset & Dunlap, a division of Penguin Random House. It is recommended for ages 3-7 and has an ISBN of 978-1-5247-9285-5.
Happy Easter to all!
