About the Author:

Dori Chaconas was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The second child in a family of seven, Dori fell into the role of storyteller, nursery rhyme singer, and general entertainer for her siblings. She claims she learned about story pacing early. If the story action lagged, her fidgety audience would either scatter or start a poking war.

She has been married to Nick, her high school sweetheart, for 50 years. Everyone says the romance will last. They raised four daughters, and are now enjoying three grandsons-especially Grandpa, having been outnumbered by women all those years.

When their daughters were young, Dori wrote for them. She published three picture books and more than fifty stories in children's magazines. In the 70's, her interest turned to yarn embroidery design and she sold designs to major needlework companies and national magazines.

In 1997, Dori started writing stories again, partly to keep her grandsons from fidgeting or starting poking wars. Her stories reflect the warmth of family life. Dori gives credit to her parents for giving her a strong sense of family, and to her children and grandchildren for keeping it alive.
 

Margie Moore is a published illustrator of children's books. Some of the published credits of Margie Moore include:Bear of My Heart, A Horse's Tale: A Colonial Williamsburg Adventure, Looking for Easter, andA Gull's Story, Part 3 - Colors at the Shore.

From Booklist:

Chaconas tries something a little tricky: she introduces the spirit of Easter without religious association and without the Easter Bunny. True, this stars a rabbit, but Little Bunny is just a brown, furry fellow living in a meadow, enticed by the smells of fresh air and flowing water. Beaver says that those smells are the scent of Easter and that Easter is a basket. So, Bunny gathers twigs and reeds and makes a basket. Woodchuck says Easter is fresh grass; Mouse says it’s sweet berries. Bunny generously gives the now-filled basket to Robin, who needs a place for her eggs. Retreating to his cave, Bunny resigns himself to having given Easter away. Then, Wren takes Bunny to see Easter—baby robins, woodchucks, mice, and beavers. Easter? Easter is new life . . . Easter is all around us today. Although some may object to the missing Christian aspects, the loving feel of this certainly says Easter more than decorated eggs. The simply drawn woodland animals washed with watercolors will attract little ones. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Ilene Cooper
