Editorial Reviews

A Martin Luther quote ends this book, reminding readers that God has written the promise of new life inevery springtime leaf. But in the beginning, there is a bunny, born in the spring, who sees that "the earth isnew, like me." As other newly born animals take their first steps or fly from the nest, the bunny notices thebeauty of the world. As the seasons change, the bunny becomes attuned to the cycle of life, though, attimes, it frightens him: the world seems to be dying before his eyes. "And Yet-And Yet!" the woodpeckertaps. Sure enough, after a winter's sleep, the bunny understands that life can be resurrected from apparentdeath, and the sun's warmth can return to gladden hearts. McPhail's ink-and-watercolor artwork displaysboth the innocence and concern that come as the bunny begins to understand that the world is complicated,and it culminates in the joy of fresh beginning. Although this can be read on a secular level, youngChristian children will see overtones of the Jesus story in Lloyd-Jones' comforting words.
