Summary

Summary

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.

Booklist Review

PreS^-Gr. 1. The popular song, written more than 60 years ago, gets new life for a new audience in this sprightly book featuring a bunny dad and his daughter. The text is the words of the song. The artwork, which brings to mind such adjectives as cute and adorable, begins as Father Rabbit escorts his young daughter, in her big, flowery bonnet, out to the avenue, where all the animals are dressed in their finest. McCue tries to inject some action into the rather sedate "story" by showing the girl's hat blowing off and her father dashing down the street to catch it. A photographer takes their picture, and they wind up in the "rotogravure," a moment that is neatly inserted in its proper place in the lyrics. The song, words and music, is appended. This is not an essential purchase, but the stuffed animal^-like characters are instantly appealing, and children will have fun singing the familiar refrain. --Ilene Cooper


Publisher's Weekly Review

In what PW called "a twist on tradition," McCue depicts a father who sings the praises of his daughter and her bonnet ("Oh, I could write a sonnet/ About your Easter bonnet") as they prepare to promenade. Complete lyrics and piano score with guitar chords close the cheerful volume. All ages. (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-On a windy spring day, a father rabbit escorts his daughter, wearing her new hand-decorated bonnet, to the animals' "Easter Parade." All of the woodland folks in their hats are parading along "Fifth Avenue" in front of elegant tree-trunk stores, such as "Tiffury & Co." and "Bird Orf Goodman." Each creature that the father and daughter encounter adds something to her bonnet (flowers, a pinwheel, a feather), until the wind snatches it from her head and her dad has to chase it. With delightful whimsicality, the appealing and colorful illustrations tell this story to the words of the classic song. Words and music are appended. The book adds to a rather sparse selection of simple secular books on Easter for the very young, and would be a good addition to a spring storytime.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA (c) Copyright 2010.
