KIRKUS REVIEW

Bunny is tired after a long night distributing Easter eggs. Too tired to hide her last, plain egg, she curls up with it in her basket. A “crackling sound” and a bump drives her to a less busy nest, but the birds’ cheeping makes that one too loud, and hedgehog in the next is too prickly and so on. A predictable layout featuring text on a mostly white page opposite a full-bleed illustration of the activity underscores the repetition; young children will have no trouble keeping up with this one—and when Bunny returns to her original nest, they won’t be surprised by what she finds there, either. Spring flowers bloom in every composition, and the cute-as-a-bunny Bunny appeals. Still, there’s not much that will endure here—it’s as sweet as a chocolate egg and will last about as long. (Picture book. 2-5)
