When Davy's big brother Dan tells the Rabbit family about the Easter Bunny who brings presents and colored eggs to human children, the Rabbit children immediately decide to go find him and ask him to bring them gifts too.
They search high and low, but the Easter Bunny is nowhere to be found.
Disappointed, Davy's brothers and sisters head for home, but not Davy.
He has an idea.
Will Davy's secret plan to make a Happy Easter for his family succeed, or has he forgotten something? Children will empathize with Davy when his well-meaning plans go awry, and will share his surprise and delight at the unexpected outcome of this sunny story-the eighth in the popular Davy series.
From School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—Weninger delivers another warm and endearing Davy tale, sure to delight young readers.
Having never received a present from the Easter Bunny, Davy and his siblings are surprised to learn that the famed rabbit is rumored to live right in their very wood, so the bunnies set off on a quest to find this elusive gift giver.
After a disappointing day of searching, Davy takes matters into his own hands.
Painting, weaving, and creating all day, he makes presents for each of his siblings and sneaks out in the early morn to hide his creations.
He faces a conundrum, however, when everyone wants to know why he hasn't received any presents.
Davy's willingness to give of himself and his eagerness to please his family is refreshing and reinforces the idea that giving can be even more rewarding than receiving.
Each full-page illustration is bright and cheerfully painted, perfect for a story set in early spring.
The size of the pictures makes this a great read-aloud, and the large font is easy for newly independent readers to follow.—Amy Shepherd, St.
