Toddler-PreS–Boynton shares another endearing tale of Little Pookie told through the eyes of an adoring mother. This installment is about preparations for the sweet holiday of Easter in the beautiful spring weather. Mom sets up a playdate for Little Pookie and bunny friend, Bean. Keeping with the traditions of the holiday, the bunnies—Pookie and Bean, both wearing rabbit ears—hop around together and then spend the day decorating Easter eggs. As quickly as it started, the playdate is over, and Pookie and Bean bid each other farewell. Mom prepares Pookie for the arrival of the Easter Bunny and the fun of the hunt in the morning; but first, Pookie must sleep. Dreams of chocolate eggs dance in Pookie’s head as the book comes to an end. Simple rhyming text allows for an easy read-aloud with young children. “And now, silly rabbits, your playdate is done. Thank you for coming! We hope you had fun!” The soft pastel colors place readers in spring.
VERDICT Recommended for general purchase for board book collections, as Pookie is a recognizable character who will delight the youngest audiences.
