Orson Rabbit’s parents, who paint Easter eggs, follow Orson on his amazing journey in search of his own artistic style.
I like this book because of the wonderful warm and intricate paintings by this author /illustrator, but also because of the wonderful Montessori-style lesson in ‘following the child’.
