Staff Reviews

My favorite Easter Story!  The Country Bunny is told that she will never be an Easter Bunny because: 1) she is brown, 2) she lives in the country, 3) she is a girl, and 4) she has 21 children.  However, she proves herself to be wise, kind, clever, and the bravest bunny of all.  This book was writeen in 1939, and the art is beautiful.

— From Deb's Picks


The country bunny attains the exalted position of Easter Bunny in spite of her responsibilities as the mother of twenty-one children.

Praise For…

"It is difficult to believe that this very modern feminist tale was originally written in 1939. A gem of a fantasy in which kindness and cleverness win out over size and brawn."--Learning Magazine
