Thinking about Easter and rabbits made me recall one of my favorite childhood books, Masquerade by Kit Williams. It doesn't actually have anything to do with Easter but the main character is a hare. Jack Hare is entrusted with a jewel from the moon to deliver to the the sun. Along the way, the jewel is lost and this is where the book truly gets interesting . . .
Kit Williams actually created this 18-carat gold jewel (pictured above) and buried it somewhere in Britain. The location of the jewel can be found in clues visual and verbal in the book. As you can imagine, the jewel has been found by now. You can read all about it here if you want.
Even though the jewel has been found, I still think this could be a fun activity for kids. Over spring break I plan on reading the book to my children and having them figure out the location of the jewel, just for fun. Maybe we'll do some kind of craft project too, perhaps make our own jewel hares out of cardboard, paint, and rhinestones.
