Pick a perfect egg with care – choose a white one nestled there. Lay in cartons, row by row. Pay the farmer. Off you go!

There’s excitement in the air as a little girl and her mother carefully collect speckled eggs at the farm. These are no ordinary eggs – they will be dyed, decorated, bejeweled and nestled in a basket. And then, when Sunday morning arrives, the little girl will wear her best bunny ears and head out to meet friends and neighbours. It’s time to search for eggs of a different kind, filled with chocolate, toys and sweeties… It’s time for a spectacular, springtime egg hunt!

This happy and gloriously illustrated Easter read-aloud captures all the excitement of the season, and is from the creators of the perennially popular Pick a Pine Tree and Pick a Pumpkin.

Review by Stacey

Pick a Perfect Egg is part of a collection of stories including Pick a Perfect Pine Tree and Pick a Perfect Pumpkin. This time the book is set at Easter.

We meet a little girl who is picking eggs at the farm with her mother to decorate for Easter. With their colourful designs and glitter-filled shells, the eggs are ready for the Easter Egg Hunt where lots of children come together to search for eggs. Including those filled with toys and chocolate ones too.

The book is written in a rhyming style that works most of the time. I wasn’t very keen on a few of the pages where the black text was written on top of a dark blue section as this made it hard to see, but other pages were fine to read.

I loved that the author detailed how to decorate the eggs and especially how they could use plants to give the egg shells colour too.

The illustrations are beautiful and fill the pages. They capture the words perfectly and showcase the children enjoying themselves whether decorating or searching for eggs.

Overall, this is a lovely, sweet, children’s picture book that would be the perfect read for Easter.
