Oh my, this was one of my absolute favorite books as a child, too. And I continue to love it as an adult. I read it to my boys when they were younger but I am sure it did not have the same effect as on them as it did on me! Maybe if the Easter bunny would have stuffed some gold item into their baskets...?
So excited to see this post! Adore this book from my childhood, as well. It is being passed on to my daughter and son now. : )
