reviews & honors:
Named to 21 Best Easter Books for Kids by Childhood 101
“Fliess has an ear for rhyme and a heart for young audiences. . . . Illustrator Simona Sanfilippo saturates each spread with the exuberant colors of spring, suggesting action and momentum with broad sweeping strokes and lightly interprets the excitement and energy of the characters. I enjoyed reading this holiday picture book and can imagine plenty of young folks who will respond eagerly to the story and to the suggested activities.”—Unpacking the POWER of Picture Books
"Do your kids love Easter egg hunts as much as mine? The fun doesn’t stop at Easter either. The demand for egg hunts lasts at least a month. This cute book about making an Easter Bunny nest is the perfect match!...I don’t always love Easter Books, but this one is super cute. It’s simple, engaging, and even includes a history of the how Easter nests became common. I also really love the nod to real life, helping caregivers have discussions about how rabbits don’t really lay eggs." @houstonlibraryfinds
"This brand new release book is all about some kids who get the genius idea of using glitter to track the Easter bunny in an effort to find the eggs easier. Brilliant right? Plus, who wouldn’t love to follow a sparkly glitter trail?! It is an instant favorite in our home and next year we may have to have some #beyondthebook fun inspired by it. (They even included a few ideas in the back!)" @book.nerd.mommy
"Filled with flowing rhymes, bright colors, and inspiration for a fun holiday activity, HOW TO TRACK AN EASTER BUNNY is one of our new favorite books for Easter! Did you know that one of the original versions of the Easter Bunny originated in Germany where children would build nests for this special springtime bunny to lay colorful eggs? An author’s note in the back of the book fills readers in on this fascinating history while the storyline follows a group of diverse children as they build their own nest for the Easter Bunny. I love books that inspire my children to be creative and I can’t wait for them to make their own nest for the Easter Bunny later this week! Don’t miss HOW TO TRACK AN EASTER BUNNY" @librarymombooks
"How To Track An Easter Bunny is an adorable book! Sue Fliess has the kids in the story following steps to create nests that will hope catch the Easter bunny. With Simona Sanfilippo’s energetic and colorful illustrations, the reader is eager to create these nests and hope that this will be the year they can catch the quick bunny! What is also wonderful about this book is Sue gives us some Easter history around the nests, in the back of the book. Also in the back she’s added STEM activities for the readers to try!
Cute, fun and my 4.5 loved! This will be a hit for all ages!" @storymamas
How to Track an Easter Bunny

To find all the Easter Bunny’s hidden treasures, all you need to do is track her as she hides them the night before Easter!
Legend has it that the only way to find all the hidden Easter eggs is to track an Easter Bunny’s every move. . . . But be careful: Easter Bunnies hop fast! To find one, you’ll need to be clever in crafting a tricky nest. So, grab some nest supplies, glitter, and glue, and get prepared for your sly holiday visitor!
On the night before Easter, the Easter Bunny will show up to hide her eggs and then disappear as quickly as she came. However, if you’re careful and clever and quick, you can set up a bunny nest that will let you track the Easter Bunny, and then you’ll be sure to find all her hidden treasures, no matter where they might be!
Sue Fliess’s poetic read-aloud text and Simona Sanfilippo’s vibrant, whimsical illustrations will provide much fun for young readers eager to track the Easter Bunny and find her hidden eggs!
