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!

This is a fun, silly book that will make any of your littles giggle! It reminded me of reading Where the Sidewalk ends when I was a child! The stories range from brushing your teeth in the morning to going to bed at night…and everything in-between!

I really enjoyed that these poems were grounded in realistic situations that every kid has encountered. Boo-boos, bedtime, nose picking, and so much more! It’s a relatable book of poetry that definitely had my kiddo laughing!
