Book Sharing Monday - Easter

While we're desperately waiting for spring to arrive here in the Northeast, I have two spring-y books to share today: The Bunny Who Found Easter by Charlotte Zolotow and Helen Craig and Jan Brett's The Easter Egg.

There's something about Charlotte Zolotow's writing that is captivating to me.  There's definitely a poetic quality to her words, and her books have a gentle feel to them.  The Bunny Who Found Easter pairs the author's lovely story with illustrations by Helen Craig (Angelina Ballerina).

I was thrilled to find that Jan Brett has an Easter tale.  This author's books never fail to delight me on a visual level, and this one has a particularly creative storyline, as well.  Jan Brett has a website filled with excellent resources.  I highly recommend taking a look.

Book Sharing Monday is hosted by Canadian Home Learning.  Alex has a post about a spring book today, too!

Cute! We are desperately waiting too! The sun is here, but not the temperatures :(

I have been a Jan Brett fan for years. I was not aware she had an Easter book. I will have to find it.

Alex, it's sunny here, too, but I think the wind is coming from your direction or even farther North! {shiver} {shiver}

Bailey, The Easter Egg came out just last spring. I think it was on my radar but didn't ping for some reason. I'm so happy to find it, too!

I hadn't seen the Jan Brett book! I'll be looking for that one. Thanks for sharing!
