What’s the deal with all the eggs? With her trademark visual humor and comic timing, Helen Yoon takes a look at a puzzling holiday tradition.

Look, an egg! An egg left by a bunny! What does that mean? It means it’s time to celebrate . . . Easter! Or is it time to celebrate breakfast? In Helen Yoon’s scenario, a difference of opinion arises between excitable pups, and the egg bearer (and ultimate squabble settler) is, naturally, an enormous, Zen-like bear wearing tiny bunny ears. As the bear demonstrates, whether it’s decorating eggs or eating them, Easter is kind of . . . delicious! Helen Yoon’s fresh and hilarious take on the Easter holiday—part of a quirky new series of picture books—is a delightful blend of bumbling affection and slack-jawed wonder.

When a group of animal friends discover an egg, they argue about want to do with it. Some want to paint it for Easter while the others want to eat it for breakfast. On any other day, an egg would make the perfect breakfast, but not on Easter. Eggs are made for painting on this holiday, not eating. Thankfully, someone else saves the day and shows them a third option.

IS THIS... EASTER is a dialogue driven children's book that is bound to bring laughter to both parents and their children. It celebrates Easter with a lot of humor you usually don't see. I love how in the end, they both get what they want. It's a compromise I never saw coming. The illustrations are pretty basic which actually adds more humor and I love how most of the details are small.


Final Verdict: This unique children's book would make the perfect Easter gift for children aged four and up. I admit I even laughed out loud while reading it.

Is This Easter? is a fun book just in time for the holiday. When an egg is set out by the strangest Easter Bunny, the ones who find it cannot decide whether to paint it or eat it. The resolution is unexpected and the character's reactions provide a funny twist to the ending. Overall, this is a quirky Easter-themed book that Preschool-Elementary children will enjoy. For a discussion opportunity, the reader can join the debate of how they would have handled the situation.
