But their good intentions are misunderstood, until they discover just the right way to pay for the hat that Eula's had her eye on. A loving family story woven from the author's childhood.

The Night Before Easter
by Natasha Wing
"Twas the night before Easter, just before dawn,
Not a creature was stirring out on the lawn."

It's Not Easy Being a Bunny
by Marilyn Sadler
Sick of being a bunny, P. J. Funnybunny takes off to become a bear. Hibernation gets dull, so he tries being a bird. And so it goes, with beavers, pigs, possums, and skunks -- till P. J. realizes that bunnyhood is for him. The short, repeating text is ideal for beginners and the bright, humorous cartoons will get immediate attention (School Library Journal)


The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes
by Dubose Heyward
The country bunny attains the exalted position of Easter Bunny in spite of her responsibilities as the mother of twenty-one children. "A gem of a fantasy in which kindness and cleverness win out over size and brawn," wrote Learning Magazine.
