The Backward Easter Egg Hunt picture and board books by Meadow Rue Merrill are engaging illustrated books for children one to four and four to seven years old.
Six-year-old Molly can’t wait for Aunt Jenny’s famous, annual Easter egg hunt at Lantern Hill Farm. But something’s different this year. Instead of hiding eggs filled with prizes, Aunt Jenny passes out empty Easter eggs! With a specially prepared rhyming list, the children embark on a scavenger hunt to fill the empty eggs with items that remind them that Jesus died on a cross and rose again. Molly and the other children learn that Easter is about how much God loves us!
Holidays are an opportunity for celebration and a time to create family traditions and memories. Yet often the emphasis shifts from the reason for the holiday to making the children the center of the celebration. The Lantern Hill Farm series of picture books and board books is designed to provide parents and grandparents entertaining stories with easy-to-recreate family activities that allow the child to be part of the holiday but not the center of it.
