It's Easter Day, and all the children are gathered for the annual hundred-egg hunt! Lizette, Timothy, and Monica have baskets full of eggs. Victor is racing toward the finish line. But one little girl is crying on a rock. She has no eggs!

When Monica decides to share her eggs with one of the children, everyone is reminded of the best Easter prize of all--having friends to share things with!

Readers will also enjoy an Easter egg search-and-find throughout the book!
