Book Review: The Night Before Easter by Natasha Wing

Image
When Natasha Wing was a little girl she wanted to be a teacher. Just like most little girls she lined up her stuffed animals and would teach them the alphabet and how to count. In High School she wanted to be a tennis player. Then in college she thought that digging dinosaur bones would be a great job. When after college she started to work at her own small public relations agency that she decided she really wanted to write children's books. She sold her first manuscript Hippity Hop, Frog on Top in 1992. She enjoys being her own boss and coming up with ideas on her own is why she decided to keep writing. The Night Before Easter by Natasha Wing is about the Easter Bunny in a delightful spin on Clement C. Moore's beloved poem. It will sure send families hoping to the bookstore for an Easter treat.  My family really enjoys the Twas the Night books by many authors. Natasha Wing did not leave us hanging with this take on the books for Easter. You get to watch the Easter Bunny hide…

Book Review: The Story of the Easter Bunny by Katherine Tegen

Katherine Tegen has been writing since she was ten years old. She has always enjoyed holidays and magic. She is the author of the New York bestseller The Story of the Easter Bunny. She lives in New York City. The Story of the Easter Bunny by Katherine Tegan is about about the true story of the Easter Bunny. A white rabbit watches and helps an old couple make chocolate and paint Easter eggs. As each year the white rabbit helps out even more and becomes the Easter Bunny.  My kids loved this story as it talks about the Easter Bunny. We read this book every year. We love how much detail is in each illustration of the books. The illustrations bring the book to life in the eyes of children. My kids loved that the bunny first starts with helping very little before he becomes the Easter Bunny. It talks about giving more then receiving gifts which is a huge plus in the eyes of a mom who wants her children to be grateful more. Hope you enjoy this book this year.
