In this bright and lively rhyme, the letters of the alphabet race each other to the top of the coconut tree. When X, Y and Z finally scramble up the trunk, however, the weight is too much, and down they all tumble in a colorful chaotic heap: “Chicka Chicka . . . BOOM! BOOM!

EASTER STORIES

One spring morning, the Easter Bunny skips merrily along to deliver his colorful, hand-painted eggs. But the children tell him that it’s Mother’s Day, which can only mean one thing: HE SLEPT THROUGH EASTER! Nobody wants eggs on Mother’s Day, or on the Fourth of July — and especially not on Halloween. Children will sympathize with the little bunny’s plight and cheer when Santa finds the perfect gift to help!
Originally published in 1957, The Easter Bunny that Overslept now returns with a fresh look, promising to delight new generations of children. What a wonderful tale to share at Easter, Mother’s Day, Christmas … or at any time at all!

In this charming Easter story, Peter Rabbit and his friends are looking for ducklings. Classic Beatrix Potter characters combine with beautiful, contemporary styling to make this little board book (with a 3-D Peter Rabbit applique!) a must for every child’s Easter!
