Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Beautiful Easter Tale This book is breathtaking - the illustrations, the story, the sentiment. Little Country Bunny longs to be one of the five Easter Bunnies, but finds herself the mother of 21 little bunnies. She teaches her children to work hard and to be respectful of each other, and her own hard work and patience are rewarded when she herself is chosen to be one of the five Easter bunnies, and deliver eggs to boys and girls all over the world. This book lovingly enchants young believers with the magic of the Easter Bunny, but also manages to convey a beautiful lesson about humility and love. It is guaranteed to become a seasonal favourite in your home.
