The Easter Hare
The Easter Hare is an ancient story giving the origins of the word 'Easter' and hares bringing eggs at springtime. It is more than a children's story book,as it has notes on the animals, ways to dramatise the story, and words of encouragement on the how and why of telling stories. It is of interest to teachers, parents and storytellers. It can be used in multifaith groups, as it brings out the natural feelings we have at springtime, on which the Christian celebration of Easter stands.

The Goddess Eostre calls the animals to take her springtime message round the world. The stag, hawk, salmon, and hare race each other, but only the hare completes the journey. Eostre gives the hare an egg laid by a raven, as a way of demonstrating her message. It is a story about the renewal of love and the resurrection of life through ancient Celtic eyes.

This is the first in a series of stories round the seasons which awaken us to their natural rhythms.


"The children were enchanted by the story and its charming illustrations, and really enjoyed exploring the animal characters through sound and movement. They made masks and we acted out a little drama in the woods, which was a real hit with their parents. It was wonderful to see how this little story brought to life in everyone's minds elements of Easter celebrations that have long needed explaining." Helen Moore, Forest School leader and children's author, www.natures-words.co.uk
