I like Ann Estelle for her confident sense of self, and her stories for their bright, contextual illustrations, proactive plots, and the bonus of a paper doll (this time with a dress and Easter hat) that's always included.

The Easter Parade is coming soon and Ann Estelle longs for a hat so special that it will 'make her the Queen of Easter.' What does mom get her? A plain straw hat with one measly, short blue ribbon! Unenthusiastic about it, she leaves it outside, where it's put to good use. Ending up stuck with last year's hat, Ann Estelle has a crafty idea and gets to work to make it fabulous.

But when it's time for the parade, she shows everyone another hat, 'The Very Best Easter Hat Ever!' As usual, Ann Estelle dreams of glory, but as always, her essential niceness wins the day. Queen of Easter is a delightful story that captures the essence of spring.
