The Easter Lamb by Mark Conte is an inspiring story where a lamb is brought to the Vianello family on Good Friday. They fatten up the lamb on Friday and Saturday and slaughter it for Easter dinner. This year Dante, Johnny and Carlo, the three Vianello boys, along with their Irish neighbor, start liking the lamb which is brought home. They name her Delilah and they enjoy playing with her. The family is not too happy with the kids playing with the lamb. The kids make a plan to save her from being slaughtered. Will they be able to rescue Delilah from being slaughtered? If so, what is their plan to rescue her?

The story is adorable and will make readers laugh and, at the same time, feel for the kids who do not want to slaughter the Easter lamb. Their feelings for the lamb are tangible and also relatable, and readers can identify with the kids' feelings towards the Easter lamb. These feelings evoke sensitivity and love. It's a good bedtime storybook, and parents and grandparents can read it out to their kids and grandkids. Delilah is an adorable lamb and the readers will also love her.

It's an inspiring story of love and kindness, and it's heartwarming to read how the kids try to rescue Delilah from becoming Easter dinner. The story is simple and will touch the hearts of readers in a big way.
