It’s Easter! Join Mom and her little Pookie as they prepare for the sweetest of holidays. Pookie’s mom arranges an Easter play date with their friend, Bean, where they hop around like bunnies and decorate eggs. At the end of the day, Pookie dreams of the Easter Bunny and, of course, chocolate!
We have egg paints! And crayons!
And stickers galore!
You can decorate eggs
till there aren’t any more.
Praise for Happy Easter, Little Pookie
"Pookie’s friend Bean, a gray puppy, comes over for Easter fun that includes lots of bouncing around and egg decorating. After Bean goes home, Pookie gets excited about the Easter Bunny’s arrival and goes to sleep dreaming of a large chocolate egg. Like the other Pookie books before it, this one is told in rhyme from the perspective of a loving grown-up addressing the little pig, which keeps the pace moving and makes for a great read-aloud. Bean and Pookie are realistically—and endearingly—childlike, from Pookie’s pronunciation of yellow as “lellow!” to the joyful mess they make while decorating eggs. There are plenty of sweet and festive touches, such as the bunny ears that Bean and Pookie (and Pookie’s teddy) wear and the daffodils painted on the end of Pookie’s bed...For fans of Boynton and little Pookie, this Easter tale is exactly as expected: a touch of playfulness, a relatable story, and comfort in the familiar."
