The Easter Chick

We rated this book:


When Hilda realizes the soft voice is coming from inside her egg, the one she’s been nurturing, she’s simply astonished. The unhatched fledgling desperately wants to know when Easter will be, which sends Hilda on a mission of discovery. She’s heard many wonderful things about the holiday and wants more than anything to be born on this special day. The wise old owl reveals the secrets of determining the date on which this sacred celebration will fall, and with patience, Hilda and her unborn chick watch for the signs in the night sky. The following Sunday morning, a delightful surprise cones.

The Easter Chick is a cherishable holiday tale about motherhood, anticipation, and sentimental value. It’s targeted toward children ages five to nine and is ideal for those reading at a second- and third-grade level.

The author and illustrator are a talented European duo who add the qualities of originality and complementary style to the text. The illustrations are detailed and distinctive, marked with contrast and allure. The well-defined ridges in the tree trucks and the barn door, the rough texture of the hen’s fur, these minute nuances bring the story to life.
