Kid’s Book Review – Last One in Is a Rotten Egg

26 Mar

This is what we are reading as a part of our Easter activities!

A wonderful book! It’s an absolute great read with the theme of an Easter egg hunt.  Most importantly, it teaches kids about sharing.

Review From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—In this 10th book about Gilbert, the young opossum and his sister are excited about their cousin’s visit. They soon realize, however, that having Wally around isn’t as much fun as they had imagined. He is so competitive that he turns everything into a contest. “Last one in is a rotten egg” is his favorite phrase, which he yells while running to beat the others at whatever activity is taking place, even getting to the lunch table first. The children attend an Easter egg hunt and Wally fills his basket quickly while Gilbert takes the time to help his little sister search for eggs. Lola spots the golden egg, which signifies a prize, but neither she nor Gilbert can reach it high in a tree. Wally takes it from its perch but instead of giving it to Lola, keeps it for himself. In the end, Lola wins her prize, Wally learns to share, and the three become friends. Pastel, cartoon-style watercolor illustrations depict the activities while revealing the small town’s populace made up of raccoons, porcupines, rabbits, cats, and dogs. Children will relate to the story, which imparts a gentle lesson on how to be a friend.—Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI
