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.
