- Summary: Spot is a little dog, which experiences Easter for his first time. The Easter Bunny has hidden some eggs for Spot to find. Spot’s friend Helen joins in and the search becomes a counting game an many things can be discovered. It is a „lift the flap – book“.
- Review: I love the books with the funny little spot. This one is wonderful for Easter, for little children learning to count or for pupils in school, to teach them the subject Easter and make them to remember how to count. As always the pictures are beautiful and many pieces can be discovered because it is a „lift the flap – book“. So it is perfekt for little kids or those who like to discover things. I can recommend it to adults and teachers.
Jonathan Allen – The Gingerbread Bunny
- Publisher: Corgi Children (Verlag an der Este)
- number of pages: 20
- Part of a series: No
One day on Easter a Little Old Woman and a Little Old Man bake a Gingerbread Bunny. For cooling down they put him near the window. But the Bunny doesn´t want to be eaten and runs away. Step by step person after person starts following him. Will he manage to be free at the end or will he been eaten?
The book is wonderful, especially for the time oft Easter, when I bought and first read it. I love the story, the pictures and most off all the way in which it is designed as a flap book. It was fun to open the little doors an discover what is inside. Next year on Easter I will surely read it to my children and maybe let them play the story. In my opinion it is wonderful for a role-play not only because the text and content is so easy to remember, but also because it has so many different characters. Because of all that I recommend it to all people and hope you will remember it next year when Easter comes again.
