PreS-- Easter delights--egg-dyeing and hunting, blooming potted bulbs, new clothes, the Bunny, and goody-filled baskets--as well as a centerfold of newborn animals and newly hatched birds--are winningly depicted in flat perspectives and a warm palette. A cheery farm family of young parents and four children celebrates the holiday in this board book, useful for identification of secular Easter symbols. It's better illustrated than similar fare, and doesn't attempt any theogical explanations. --Patricia Pearl, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
