The Lovereading4Kids comment

This very appealing board book puts a cheeky spin on the favourite We’re Going on a Bear Hunt rhyme. A family of rabbits set off on an egg hunt, finding them hidden all around the farm and nearby fields (you’ll have to lift the special flaps to see them). Often their search is interrupted – ‘Oh no – chicks! Can’t go over them, can’t go over them, got to go through them …’ and there’s a final surprise when the bunnies have to run from the wolf but all ends happily, with Easter eggs for tea. It’s lots of fun to read aloud and the illustrations are very charming. A tasty treat for Easter but with lots to recommend it all year round. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

We're Going on an Egg Hunt by Laura Hughes

Join the Easter Bunnies as they set off on an exciting lift-the-flap Easter egg hunt. With ten eggs to find and count, this board book is great fun. But watch out for the obstacles along the way - lambs, chicks, bees and ducks - and there's even a wolfish surprise, so do take care.

Based on the traditional `We're Going on a Lion Hunt' rhyme, the delightful illustrations and read-aloud story will make this board book a huge springtime hit with all fans of search-and-find and lift-the-flap books. We're going on an egg hunt. We're going to find them all. We're REALLY excited. Hooray for Easter Day!

You might also like the We're Going on an Egg Hunt Activity Book with lots of fun things to do to keep young children busy over the Easter holidays. To give you a taste of this book there's a lovely activity pack to download and some beautifully drawn bunting to decorate your Easter party!
