Hidden eggs and silly surprises await in this interactive Easter board book for toddlers and babies.

The Easter egg hunt is on! With this bright and colorful hands-on toddler board book, the Easter tradition of the egg hunt comes to life in a playful, interactive way. Young children will turn the wheel to hide brightly colored Easter eggs inside baskets, under flowers, behind rocks, and even in hands. After the egg is hidden, it's time to guess where it is! Lift the flap for the reveal in this game-in-a-book, then play again (and again) for hours of eggs-citing fun!

Mixing in a bit of hide-and-seek, this is an book which will have kids hunting for eggs again and again.

Taking on the fun of Easter egg hunting, these pages challenge young readers to go on a search to find them where ever they can. Two doors are found on each page—in the most unexpected places—where an egg, or none, or maybe two are waiting to be discovered. But it's not as simple as opening a door and finding a bright egg. The wheels on the side of he page turn the eggs, making what's behind each door a surprise every time.

The illustrations are lovingly done and invite with Spring feelings. The 'door's are incorporated nicely, making it fun to discover each one. And the characters...such as mice and birds...add an extra drop of cuteness to the mix. There is a short phrase on each page, such as 'guess which hand', but this pales in comparison to the searching fun.

It's a cute idea which made me and my kids smile. The wheel is simple to operate and the doors are fun to peek behind. The idea of having the eggs change, is quite clever and insures an extra play factor. It's a sweet book for Easter that young listeners are sure to enjoy.

And here she is...
