“Easter: McEaster Valley is an imaginative children’s story in which a grown-up’s life is transformed during a walk in the woods.” Foreword Reviews

For Walter R. Hoge, a veterinarian, there is more to life than just glitter and gold, and one has lots to learn from and enjoy in life, particularly when getting lost. He discusses this matter at length in his children’s book “Easter: McEaster Valley” (ReadersMagnet; 2020).

Dr. Hoge gained the idea for “Easter: McEaster Valley” when he was pondering life after the death of his wife. He thought about a lot of things, things that are important to him as they helped him realize how wonderful the life he has lived and how fortunate he has been in his life. He wrote this book for his children, to whom he would try to get them to sleep by telling them stories about McEaster Valley, which they really like.

Written in the first person, “Easter: McEaster Valley” tells the story of a man who wanders into a strange, vibrant world during his morning walk in the Sierra foothills. He travels deeper and farther into a beautiful valley, where an aged, bearded man appears to him and introduces him to a world of wonders and mystery. The man is awed at the scientific and technological marvels of the dimension he finds himself in.

By publishing “Easter: McEaster Valley,” Dr. Hoge hopes to motivate his readers into getting the most out of the natural world around them, approaching life with more zest and positivity, and respecting the environment, among the many life lessons he shares in his book.

Kristine Morris of “Foreword Reviews” gave a positive review for “Easter: McEaster Valley,” assigning it three out of five for its narrative style and voice, subject matter, and illustrations. A part of her review highlights the man’s experiences in the strange, vibrant world he finds himself in – and how it delivers the book’s intended message for its readers. It reads:

As the man discovers all that the planet has to offer, he maintains his sense of curiosity. Indeed, both the text and the illustrations indicate that this is crucial: the lost man’s open-mindedness is credited with his ability to draw knowledge from his fun. But although it is written from the viewpoint of an adult, the narrative and its lessons remain accessible to its target audience. Its lead character models a thoughtful, nonjudgmental attitude toward all that he sees; acceptance of the fact that adventures often come with hardships; and thankfulness for the kindness he encounters. He also evinces care and concern for his family when faced with a hard choice, too, leading to a bittersweet conclusion to his adventures.
