Bloomsbury Children's Books, 2018. ISBN 9781408889749
(Age: 2-5) Recommended. Lift the flap book. Themes: Easter, Counting, Egg hunt. The Easter bunnies are off on an egg hunt, determined to find all the eggs. There are ten of them hidden under flaps, but there are other surprises on the way.
Children will love to chant along with the refrain that is repeated throughout the book:
We're going on an egg hunt.
We're going to find them all.
We're REALLY excited . . .
HOORAY for Easter Day!

Lifting the flaps reveals the eggs, and children can count along as they find them. There is another refrain for children to join in
Oh, no - . . .
Can't go over them.
Can't go under them.
Can't go around them.

The bunnies are very cute and readers will delight in seeing all the farmyard animals that they come across in their search for the eggs.
This is a fun board book, sturdy in construction and a great read aloud in preparation for an Easter egg hunt.
