Bunny's First Spring by Sally Lloyd-Jones, illustrated by David McPhail

A baby bunny discovers hope is at the heart of things.

When a bunny is born in spring, the world is green and new and full of hope. But as the months pass the breeze turns cold, the leaves on the apple tree fall, and the swallows leave the barn. The little bunny begins to worry that everything is dying.

Illustrated by New York Times Bestselling award-winning illustrator, David McPhail, Bunny’s First Spring celebrates the joy-filled rebirth and renewal at the heart of Springtime. As the earth thaws and the robins return to their nests, the little bunny discovers hope, transformation, and the miracle of new life everywhere around him.

My Review:
This delightful story of a baby bunny learning about the change of seasons will help children learn about the seasonal changes of Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. Bunny has a supportive mother and father who assure him that just as he is growing beautiful and strong, so is the world. When the bunny's world turns cold, he fears it is dying and scurries into his burrow where he sleeps until Spring returns. His parents then tell him that the world celebrates his birthday.

Written for children ages 4 -8.

I'm including a copy of a page with text so that the reader can appreciate the beautiful illustrations.
