Inspire both excitement and reverence for the Easter holiday in this colorful picture book

Brightly illustrated in beautiful spring colors, P. K. Hallinan takes the reader from the early discovery of an Easter basket through a quick search for eggs. Then it’s time to jump into brand-new Easter outfits and join the neighbors for church. After church, it’s back outside for games and then home to reflect on the wonderful day. Each joyful activity is brimming with the heart-stirring warmth associated with all of P. K. Hallinan’s children’s books.

As always, Hallinan is careful to make fitting transitions from reverie to reverence—he delicately encourages respect for the Easter message, subtly exploring the hope that this favorite holiday brings. Parents have come to expect their children to identify with P. K. Hallinan’s lovable, familiar characters, and they may once again in this delightful look at Easter through a child’s eyes.

P. K. Hallinan combines the joyful spirit of the holiday with the good-natured excitement of a child’s Easter morning in How to Celebrate Easter!
