Winnie the Pooh: Springtime with Roo
Each year, Rabbit plays Easter Bunny, but this year, he’s decided it’s “Spring Cleaning Day,” and he orders everyone to hop to it: scrubbing, dusting, and mopping. All his pals are disappointed – especially little Roo – until Rabbit learns that putting others first and showing friends how much you care turns every day into a precious gift. This one is appropriate regardless of religious beliefs. ($9.99 on Amazon.com| $8.88 on Amazon.ca)
The First Easter Rabbit
Narrated by Burl Ives, this title is to Easter what Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is to Christmas. Glinda has scarlet fever, so her cuddly toy rabbit Stuffy and all her other possessions have to be destroyed. But a flower fairy magically brings Stuffy to life, and she tells him that he will be the first Easter rabbit. She sends him on a difficult journey to Easter Valley, an enchanted realm where it’s always springtime, where the bunny hopes to bring the first-ever basket of Easter goodies to children. But a cold-hearted ice creature named Zero refuses to permit such happiness. If he has his way, he’ll freeze out Easter celebrations forever! ($5.00 on Amazon.com| $14.98 on Amazon.ca)
Here Comes Peter Cottontail
Peter Cottontail wants to be the chief Easter Bunny, and everyone in April Valley agrees…except for Evil Irontail. Peter must deliver more eggs than this arch-rival to earn the top spot…and save Easter for children everywhere! Hop along with Peter and his friend Seymore S. Sassafrass as they race through time to overcome Irontail’s terrible plans and restore the magic of Easter Sunday. ($12.88 on Amazon.com| $5.64 on Amazon.ca)
The Easter Bunny Is Comin’ to Town
The Mailman decides to stop another deluge of letters by answering questions about the Easter Bunny: Sunny, a baby rabbit found and adopted by Kidville (a town of only kids–even a kid mailman). And when Sunny goes delivering eggs to the nearby town (which he has to dye to fool Gadzooks, the mean bear on the mountain), he discovers that there are no kids in the town, and that the rightful (kid) ruler is being suppressed by his aunt. But the young king likes Sunny’s dyed eggs and jelly beans. So Kidsville, with the help of an old train engine, makes a few plans (and a decoy chocolate rabbit) to distribute them. This is a fun classic money the whole family will enjoy! ($7.77 on Amazon.com| $10.33 on Amazon.ca)
