The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes by DueBose Heyward and Marjorie Flack

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!

What’s your favorite Easter/Spring children’s book?

    I don’t know that story–I’m going to look for it. It seems I rember a story about a bunny and bright red slippers.

      Hmmm… I don’t know that one. I thought I half remembered it but then I realized I was thinking of The Little Rabbit Who Wanted Red Wings… wings.. slippers… maybe bunnies just like red stuff?
