From Our Editors

Kevin Henkes, who recently told us about Sheila Rae's Peppermint Stick, has a sweet new story for Easter. In Owen's Marshmallow Chick, our adorable mouse hero finds a basket full of delectable treats on Easter morning -- jellybeans, gumdrops, butter cream eggs, a big chocolate bunny and a little marshmallow chick. Each treat is proclaimed to be Owen's "favorite" and is devoured with gusto. But when Owen arrives at the marshmallow chick, he decides to play with it rather than eat it up. Young children will enjoy this neat and simple board book, recognizing that they, too, have many "favorites" that aren't necessarily for eating! Ages 2-7.
