Easter on the Farm

Beaming Bks. (Countryside Holidays: Bk. 4). Mar. 2024. 32p. Tr $17.99. ISBN 9781506487700.
K-Gr 3–A girl describes Easter on her aunt and uncle’s farm, where they meet the newborn animals, cut pussy willows, ready the garden, attend church, and more. Each event is shared in simple detail, giving the book a gentle feel that makes it perfect for cuddled-up sharing. Hunt’s realistic illustrations are detailed and feel like springtime; however, there is not much diversity in the characters. The end of the book includes directions for a few Easter activities that readers can do, such as dyeing eggs and creating an Easter tree.
VERDICT This quiet story is a suggested purchase for those who already have a following for Alsdurf’s other holiday books, or who are in need of a simple, cozy Easter title.
