It is almost Easter and the bunny rabbits are working to complete their eggs for the Easter Bunny to hide. Every year the rabbits worked hard to make the best, most beautiful egg. If the Easter Bunny chooses their egg then they get to help him hide eggs on Easter morning. This is Hoppi’s first year competing to win the coveted prize. He visits all his neighbors to observe them and get some ideas. Hoppi stops in the forest to think about what he will do when a bright blue robin’s egg falls from a tree into a nearby clump of moss. The egg is not damaged but there is no way to get the egg back up to the mother robin. Hopi decides that he must keep the egg warm until it hatches. He takes very good care of this egg. Time passes and he continues to care for the egg. Finally, it is the day the Easter Bunny will arrive. He comes in a magnificent carriage pulled by very plump hens. He looks over all the eggs. . .. has Hoppi missed out?. . . you will have to read the book to find out!
This is another delightful book from renowned author/artist Jan Brett. In traditional Brett artwork, the story is told framed in Springtime flora.
