Countdown to Easter: Day 1

Laura Numeroff and Mouse return with another wonderful book for young readers!

Review copy provided courtesy of publisher.

Mouse's friend, Bunny surprises Mouse by hiding Easter eggs through Mouse's house on Easter day. Mouse takes great delight in exploring the house further as he discovers more and more eggs throughout!

The book is ideal for young readers due to the simplicity of the story and text. It also has two educational aspects to it, counting and colors, allowing young children interact with the story by helping name the colors and count the Easter eggs alongside Mouse.

Learning/Reading Activity:
  • Have your child(ren) help "color" the Easter eggs that Bunny leaves hidden for Mouse. Use this as a listening activity to practice letters and counting skills. The download can be found here.
