With Easter just around the corner, parents will be heading out to find all sorts of bunny-themed books to fill up their kid’s Easter basket (I know I will.) Here are eight classic bunny books that you just can’t go wrong with that are great for any time of the year.
Guess How Much I Love You – In this heartwarming tale Little Nutbrown Hare tries to outdo Big Nutbrown Hare’s gestures of love.
The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes – This classic children’s book has been around for over 70 years and promotes the message that those who are kind and work hard will persevere.
The Tale of Peter Rabbit – Beatrix Potter’s famous story of naughty Peter and all of this adventures in Mister McGregor’s garden never gets old.
Pat the Bunny – Small hands will delight in this touch-and-feel book that charms kids from infants to toddler and beyond. My almost three-year-old still loves to touch “Daddy’s scratchy face.”
I Am a Bunny – This lovely story about a bunny named Nicholas experiencing the seasons is illustrated by Richard Scarry and a delight to read over and over again.
The Velveteen Rabbit – This tale about a stuffed rabbit’s quest to become “real” has been a favorite for many generations before us.
Home for a Bunny – Margaret Wise Brown strikes again with this classic book about a furry little bunny trying to find his way home. The sweet illustrations are just an additional bonus for parents and children alike.
The Runaway Bunny – Yet another sweet tale of a rabbit trying to find his way home, again by Margaret Wise Brown (are bunnies famous for running away or what?)
Happy Easter! Are there any other book starring bunnies that I’ve missed?
