K and I read this before bed and he seemed to really enjoy it. It is almost like the book Twas The Night Before Christmas as it has the same type of tune but instead of Christmas it is Easter! We read as the Easter bunny comes to visit and what he leaves behind. Adorable read right before Easter that I think kids of all ages would enjoy.  The pictures went right along with the story being told and K enjoyed it. He asked if he would get as much candy this Easter as what was in the book. Had to remind him that was a lot of candy for one person to have.

This book is a clever take-off on The Night Before Christmas. It is a satisfying story with clever words. It is important for children to be familiar with The Night Before Christmas in order to fully appreciate it. The illustrations are good and match the text well. Our young grand children enjoyed reading it and our youngest grand daughters wanted to hear it read again.

I bought this book for my 4 year old grandson, I had also purchased the Night before Christmas last Christmas. He enjoys all books this was not one he asked to have read to him over and over like he does some books. I thought it was cute just because of the remake of an old favorite.
