A family of mice dressed in their fancy Easter garb are ready to enjoy a beautiful spring day hunting for colorful Easter eggs. But, one mouse gets a little sidetracked and spends his time sniffing flowers, playing in a mud puddle and splashing in a stream. When everyone gathers to count how many eggs they’ve found the playful mouse didn’t have a single egg. In a panic, he ran to find one and he did. It was a plain egg with a pleasant surprise inside. Can you guess what it could be?

Author Bethany Roberts has created a delightful Easter tale with lots of fun bouncing words. Illustrator Doug Cushman’s colorful illustrations are bright and cheery. Parents and teachers can discuss the Easter holiday, egg hunting and staying on task.
