1. There are “Bunnies Galore” in many new children’s books this year!

2.  We received this book for Easter when our middle daughter was born.  It has remained a favorite for many years.

3.  Anytime I can add a book that includes BOTH Charlotte Zolotow and Maurice Sendak, I’m going to do it.  This is a wonderful story:

4.  We read The Golden Egg Book just before bedtime last night.  The very last page and line of this wonderful title in The Little Golden Books Series is worth a million.

5.  Our list of rabbits and children would not be complete without sharing the world of Beatrix Potter.  We have always enjoyed reading these adventures together with the children and love finding just the right voice for such a great variety of characters.  Click on the poster below to go to Beatrix Potter’s wonderful Peter Rabbit website!
