About the book
The first Easter tells the story of the part animals played making Easter, a festival that brings joy to both children and adults. The giving and receiving of those special eggs custom made for each of us. The smell of freshly baked cakes, pies, and cinnamon hot cross buns.
Have you ever wondered how a rabbit was chosen to carry the eggs? Or whether anyone else was involved in this celebration. Well this book answers those questions and more.
