If you’re looking for something that’s a little Easter themed, but not exclusive to the season of chocolate Eggs, there’s a fab new book out that fans of Where’s Waldo style books will just love. Where’s The Easter Bunny? – Around the World by Louis Shea is a superb ‘around the world’ themed book with over 500 things to spot.
What’s the Story – Where’s The Easter Bunny? – Around the World
The cheeky foxy makes up a story about how, long before the Easter Bunny, chocolates where liberally shared out every day by the Easter Fox. According to Foxy’s story, a mean bunny came along and stole the equipment, making himself the Easter Bunny, and keeping all the chocolate for himself, only giving it away one day of the year, when he was stuffed full. Foxy tells them they have to take back the chocolate factory from the Bunny, and they agree to help. At the last minute, they realise that Foxy has been tricking them, and they want to return all the chocolate making equipment to the factory, but alas, Foxy has run off with it. The animals travel from London to Australia, USA to China, France to Kenya, Easter Island and just in time, back to the Easter Egg Factory.
On each page there are 8 items to find – the same 8 items on all the pages – but then each country also has things to find – 10 of this, 9 of that, 8 of the other and so on, so that alongside the 8 regular items, there are 55 other items to find on each page. It will keep your child busy for ages!
What we think of Where’s The Easter Bunny? – Around the World
“I love this book. I love that it has a story, and it also has stuff you can actually do. The picutures are really nice, and I love them because there’s a bunny.” – Aviya (6)
I think this is a brilliant interactive book. It’s something a child can do on their own, but it’s also something that’s fun to do together. I particularly love that you can dip in and out, and don’t have to dedicate an entire evening to working through the entire book, every time. That means that the book offers something new every time you pick it up.
