One of my favorite parts of reading to the girls is being able to share books I remember loving with them. So every Easter we’ve dug out The Country Bunny, and I’m happy to see that Ivy seems to enjoy it just as much as I did.
It’s also possible that I might like this book more now that I’m a mother myself. There are somethings in it that I find to be funny that I never would have as a kid. “Now we are going to have some fun” as a precursor to teaching all her children their chores makes me smile. And of course the appeal of Mother Cottontail realizing her life dream after she has 21 children, is undeniable!
Would I recommend it? Yes. It was first published in 1939 and Ivy still loves it now, it’s certainly got something going for it!
