From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2This new interpretation of the Easter Bunny story opens in the Garden of Gethsemane, where Rabbit encounters Jesus praying and weeping. Splashed by a tear, Rabbits heart becomes filled with love and pity. Hurriedly, he searches for a special gift to raise Jesuss spirits. With the help of some hens and Owl, he colors 12 eggs and places them in a flower-decked basket. Suddenly the purple egg is cracked to form a cross. Searching for Jesus in Jerusalem, Rabbit learns from Crow the dreadful news of the Crucifixion, rushes to the empty tomb, and cries himself to sleep in a nest of dogwood branches. He is awakened by a brilliant light and a voice praising him for receiving Jesuss love. Then he is instructed to distribute the eggs to children as a reminder of Gods gift of eternal life. The large full- and double-page illustrations are a mix of coloring book-style animal figures and realistic human beings and architectural details in soft shades with a crayon-like texture. A gentle and expressively written story.Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
