The Best Easter Eggs Ever

The Best Easter Eggs Ever

by Jerry Smath Illustrated by Jerry Smath
This charming Easter tale from talented author-illustrator Jerry Smath tells the story of Easter Bunny, his three helpers--Willa, Bella, and Jellybean--and an adventure-filled egg painting contest.

Easter Bunny has always painted all the Easter Eggs himself, but this year his eyes are tired! So he holds an Easter Egg Painting Contest among his helpers to find the best new design. Inspired by a lighthouse at the seashore, Willa Bunny paints bold red stripes on her egg. Jellybean Bunny paints pretty spring flowers on his egg in the country. But Bella Bunny gets lost in the woods, trying to follow drifting clouds. When night arrives, stars appear--giving Bella the idea to paint golden stars on her egg. And who's the winner of the contest? All three little bunnies!
