Oh, I could write a sonnet
About your Easter bonnet,
And of the girl I'm taking to
The Easter Parade

celebrated composer Irving Berlin wrote "Easter Parade" over sixty years ago. Now his timeless song comes to life in this delightfully sunny picture book.

Lisa McCue's warm, friendly art tells the simple story of a father and daughter bunny who set off for the Easter parade. Once on the avenue, they join throngs of other animals in a magical New York setting filled to the brim with flowers, balloons, and, of course, Easter bonnets!

This book is the perfect way for the youngest readers to celebrate a beloved spring holiday. The music and lyrics to the original song are also included as a special bonus.
