Just in time for Easter, I’ve decided to review The Golden Egg, written by A. J. Wood and illustrated by Maggie Kneen. It was published in 2000 by Chronicle Books. The reason I like this sweet, enchantingly illustrated picture book is because of the extra special surprises that are hidden underneath the flaps on each page. I’ll give you a hint, they’re egg-stra special! The story is really very simple, told in rhyme, and it tells the tale of some animal friends that set off to find a golden egg. This is a nice one to share with your youngest children who are learning their colors. It’s perfect for Easter time or any time of the year.
Have A Happy Easter Everyone!
