Delightful Easter Picture Book for the Holiday


The Easter Bunny Gets a New Friend

Holiday books are always fun and Deborah Underwood's Here Comes The Easter Cat is a delightful picture book and story that young children will enjoy. The cat is in a bad mood because everyone loves the Easter Bunny. The cat would like some love too. Someone suggests that the cat become the Easter Cat and deliver all of the chocolate bunnies and eggs to the children for this holiday this year. He wonders how he will get around to all of the homes for Easter. The Easter Bunny hops, but the cat has another idea. Young readers will be amused at the choice that the cat makes in order to get around to all of the homes in time for Easter. The cat knows that the Easter Bunny has nice clothes. Cat decides to choose a sparkly outfit for Easter delivery of all the chocolate candy and eggs. This is hard work and it might be time for a nap or seven! Do you think the Easter Bunny ever gets tired? The Easter Bunny appears to present Cat with his eggs. The bunny looks very tired. Cat has a surprise for the Easter Bunny and the Easter Bunny has a new friend that is very helpful.

Claudia Rueda's charming illustrations add to this fun read-aloud picture book for the holiday. Each page has a short text that young readers will find easy to read.

Here Comes The Easter Cat was published by Dial Books for Young Readers, a division of Penguin Young Readers Group. It is recommended for ages 3-7 and has an ISBN of 978-0-8037-3939-0.

Bring Here Comes The Easter Cat to the Classroom for Holiday Reading Fun

Picture books for holidays are always fun to use in an early childhood classroom. Holiday picture books are some of my favorite tools to use with young children when introducing holiday concepts. Easter is a popular holiday for young children and picture books depicting the holiday activities with the Easter Bunny are fun read-alouds. Here Comes The Easter Cat also presents an opportunity for children to have a lesson in helping our friends.

*Read Here Comes The Easter Cat in a story time session.

*Engage children in a discussion of the reason that Cat wants to be the Easter bunny.

*Create a class writing activity to present the opportunity for children to draw or write ideas for what they want the Easter Bunny to bring this year.

*Create a math activity for young children by creating a class graph of favorite Easter candy. Chocolate bunnies, jelly beans, and the popular Peeps can be used as sections for the graph. Graph the favorites and have the children read the math graph to discover the class favorite.

*Many early childhood teachers dye Easter eggs with their class for the holiday. Children will enjoy this activity after reading Here Comes The Easter Cat. Dyeing eggs is a fun way to enhance the reading experience.

*Create an art center for children to draw or paint pictures of Easter eggs. Place markers, crayons, collage tissue paper, and drawing paper in the art center for children to create eggs.

*Teachers might like to have an egg hunt with the class for the holiday celebration.

*Add a cooking activity as an activity to enhance the reading session. Have boiled eggs as a snack. Eggs can be boiled in the classroom using a hot plate and children can prepare the eggs to eat after boiling the eggs.

*Engage children in a discussion of how the cat helped the Easter bunny. Introduce the concept of friendship when friends help friends.
