Emma's Easter is one of the many nonfiction books by Lisa Bullard. This picture book is about Emma, the main character, and her family celebrating Easter. Throughout the story, Emma is trying to find a particular egg with her name on it (ex. she looked in a hat, in her yard, and even in her dog bowl.) As a literacy teacher, I would use this story to teach capitalization of words. For example, the first word of a sentence should be capitalized, the names of countries, and people's name (ex. the ...more

I liked that the book made it interesting to learn facts about Easter. The illustrations are very colorful and stand out. The context is simple and easy to understand. I also liked how it had an example of an interracial couple because students can relate. I also liked how the book had a table of contents, a glossary, and was divided by short chapters. Which introduces children to these things that they will encounter when reaching harder levels of reading. I also liked the resources that it had ...more

This narrative is about Easter told from the perspective of a little girl, Emma. She goes throughout the book looking for Easter eggs. She is interested in a particular one with her name written on it. She goes through the rituals her family takes part in related to Easter like going to church and Easter egg hunts.. As a teacher I would use this text to relate to some students who participate in Easter celebrations. I could also use this to inform others, who do not know, what Easter is about. I ...more

This was a cute Easter book. The illustrations show how people in the U. S. A. celebrate Easter. The family in this book, are of different races. You can click on the print to enlarge them. There are boxes that give information about how Easter came to this country from Germany, and other facts about Easter. We learn about the different special breads, that are eaten by different ethnic groups at Easter.This is a good little children's book.
