Author Spotlight — Yvonne Mes

Meet Australian author Yvonne Mes as she discusses her delightful picture book Little Bilby’s Aussie Easter Egg Hunt.

A group of baby bilbies are on an Easter egg hunt. They find all kinds of eggs – a kookaburra’s egg, a turtle’s egg, a cassowary’s egg – before they finally find what they’ve been looking for: Easter eggs to share with all their friends.

Read the story to your children and share information about Yvonne’s writing process. Use discussions about the book to inspire children’s imaginations and writing.

The book is perfect for reading at Easter time, or any time, especially when learning about animals that lay eggs.
