This is definitely old-fashioned ("you may find a basket of ducklings beside your porridge on Easter morning") but that's part of the charm. The storytelling is just so-so, though a few phrases are lovely like "finding the stardust on the daffodils with your eyes closed" or the idea of dreaming of a beautiful fawn that will carry you to meet all sorts of darling Easter-time animals like ducklings and bunnies. The illustrations, however, are classic Tasha Tudor and I adore them.

The illustrations in this book are very sweet, but the story is old fashioned so my kids didn't relate at all and were rather bored by it.
I (still) love her stuff.

I love these books from Tasha Tudor, they make me think of childhood. On my wishlist, wondering what the difference will be with the 2013 rerelease edition.
Tasha Tudor's gorgeous little drawings tell the story of Easter. Really cute for little ones.

very old fashioned. a vintage copy of this would be very cute for an Easter basket.
Very old fashioned but I loved it.
