We all know March means spring, and spring means BUNNIES. Growing up I was obsessed with wild bunnies. There was a family of wild rabbits that would hop through our yard each afternoon and drive our beagle crazy. Occasionally I would leave a few carrots outside overnight and was always amazed to find them gone in the morning. So, since it is officially bunny season, we have some great book recs you and your hippity-hoppity, snuggly little ones will be all over!
An irresistibly sweet springtime board book from the best-selling author of Good Night Moon and The Runaway Bunny.
One sunny morning, in a bright and busy meadow, Little Bunny wakes up. What does he hear? From the fluttering of birds' wings to the buzzing of bumblebees, the sounds of Spring are all around him. Brown's lyrical text and gentle question/answer format offer young children plenty of opportunity to chime right in! The sweet characters are brought to life with adorable paintings by best-selling artist Lisa McCue.
This stunningly illustrated debut is The Runaway Bunny for a new generation—a captivating flight of fancy that also helps children lull themselves into dreamland.
