Summary

Summary

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.

Booklist Review

Ages 3-7. In Weninger's Happy Easter, Davy! Davy rabbit's endearing family has never heard of the Easter Bunny. The family has met a lot of rabbits in the woods, but never one that brings gifts and hides eggs. The rabbit children decide to search for the intriguing bunny, but they can't find him. Davy, sensing their disappointment, comes up with a plan: he paints rocks (he wouldn't want to use real bird eggs) to make presents for each member of the family. The surprise ending shows that sometimes-unexpected rewards come to those with a generous spirit. In Weigelt's The Easter Bunny's Baby, someone has delivered a giant egg to the Easter Bunny. When the Easter Bunny hears it make a noise, he decides he'd better find a bird to sit on it. When the egg hatches, a loveable baby ostrich latches onto the Easter Bunny and sticks like glue until its real parents are found. The artwork in both books is warm and appealing, and the books' large format, with many full-page and double-spread pictures, will be great for using with small groups. A good pair for a holiday story hour. --Shelley Townsend-Hudson


Publisher's Weekly Review

The rabbit hero of What Have You Done, Davy? and five other volumes, celebrates the holiday in Happy Easter, Davy! by Brigitte Weninger, illus. by Eve Tharlet. Hearing that "human children" get gifts from a rabbit calling himself the Easter Bunny, Davy and siblings set out to find the glad-handed fellow to ask for some presents, too. When they can't find him, Davy decides to take on the Easter Bunny's role and surprise his siblings with homemade toys so guess who gives Davy his Easter present? (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

School Library Journal Review

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. Anne's Episcopal School, Middleton, DE (c) Copyright 2013.
