Bunster, an Easter Story is a board book targeting pre-k through early elementary children. It’s a cute story that has an Easter theme but could actually fit any time of year. I felt that the Easter concept was pretty light, so I think this could get read a bit more than just in the spring.
In the story, Bunster is getting ready for an Easter Egg Hunt, so he is collecting eggs on the farm to hide. In the end, the eggs hatch, and there are adorable little ducks!
The only thing that I have an issue within this book is the font. It’s cursive, and it’s really elegant. It doesn’t fit a board book, and I think it’s distracting for the adult reader. While board books are read by adults, as children begin to learn letters and sight words, board books are a great way for them to recognize the things they are learning. I would love to see any future printings of this book be changed to a non-cursive font.
