School Library Journal - 03/01/2022 K-Gr 2—The Bear family is excited to welcome the Easter holiday. But they quickly discover that there are no eggs, treats, or goodies to be found anywhere. The Easter Bunny did not come. Papa Bear makes a comical effort to replace the Easter Bunny, but a series of silly spreads reveals that their best course of action is to find the real one. They soon find the bunny enjoying some rest and, with the assistance of some helpers, convince him to return to his holiday duties. Each spread contains one to four short sentences, with illustrations that echo the artwork from the original books providing visual clues to the text. For instance, one spread shows the Bear family surrounded by Easter baskets, Easter eggs, and sweet treats, while the accompanying text reads, "The bears love Easter eggs! They love Easter goodies!" VERDICT While there is nothing new or groundbreaking to be found here, this is a solid choice for new and emerging readers. Recommended as an additional purchase or wherever the series is popular.—Olivia Gorecke - Copyright 2022 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
