What My Children Are Reading


This week, I'm going to share with you two picture books featuring bunnies that we've been reading. They were both included in the package I won from HarperCollins Childrens Books in April.

Little White RabbitThe first book is Little White Rabbit by Kevin Henkes. This is an adorable new picture book about a little white rabbit, of course, who hops along through different scenes. As he hops into each new scene, he wonders what it would be like to be a different color, or a different size, or able to fly. When you turn the page, you find a two-page spread showing him as he imagines himself, as tall as the trees or as green as the grass. The story encourages imagination, and the illustrations are simple yet beautiful. We all really enjoyed this one.

The Runaway BunnyThe second book is an oldie that we hadn't really read before. It's The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown. This is about a another little bunny who says he's going to run away. His mother tells him she will run after him. Then as he says he will do different things to get away from her, such as becoming a fish and swimming down the river, his mother says she will find him by doing things like becoming a fisherman and catching him. It's a classic story of a mother's love and I'm glad we finally have this classic to enjoy.
