THE EASTER BUNNY'S ASSISTANT SUMMARY

This book is all about the Easter Bunny and his assistant, Skunk. The two characters are here to teach readers how to decorate Easter eggs. Throughout the book, the Easter Bunny narrates the different steps for decorating an egg. Skunk is just so excited that he can’t help but cause a stink in the room. The Easter Bunny asks him to control himself, but Skunk can’t do it and the Easter Bunny removes him from the room.

Easter Bunny continues with his instructions while Skunk knocks on the window from outside. Eventually, Easter Bunny asks readers if they think he should let Skunk back in and help him hide the eggs. When the two return together, readers can see that the Easter Bunny has decided to wear a clothespin on his nose. Students will laugh out loud while reading this short but very entertaining story.
