What It Is
Chester the Easter Bunny decorates his eggs in the colors of the rainbow. He then hides them for all of his friends to find, but he chooses tricky spots. For example, he decorates the red egg to look like a baby robin and puts it in a nest with other baby birds. On Easter morning, his friends discover their colorful eggs and bring them together for a rainbow of color.
Is It Fun?
Dyeing Easter eggs is not only a fun activity, but also a great tool for teaching colors to very young children. That’s exactly what Chester’s Colorful Easter Eggs is all about. This new release is a perfect way to celebrate Easter and the coming of spring. Chester is the quintessential Easter Bunny and the collage-style art seemingly makes the illustrations pop off the page.
Who It’s For
The publisher recommends this new book for ages two to five years, but even a one-year-old would like it. And, the pages are a heavy paper so they are less apt to tear.
What To Be Aware Of
Lot’s of repeated readings!
