The Easter Egg Express by Susannah McFarlane

Scholastic, 2014. ISBN 9781742831695.
The Easter Egg Express tells the story of Ellie and Erin, the Easter bilbies in charge of delivering Easter Eggs. They are quite excited until they realise just how many eggs they must deliver! What will they do?
The Easter Egg Express is a small picture book with accompanying text. I love the repeated use of words starting with 'e' making it a great book to discuss all the different sounds the letter 'e' makes. It could be too small for a classroom setting but would be a great story to read with your child or to have an older child read to a younger one. The pictures are bright and colourful and I love the Australian theme - echidnas, emus, bilbies, koalas and kangaroos celebrating Easter together.
