Rabbit Books Off the Beaten Bunny Path

It's spring, it's almost Easter and it's bunny season. We all know Peter Rabbit, the Velveteen Rabbit and Brer Rabbit, but there are plenty of literary rabbits to discover. Your library and bookstore probably have bunny book displays out - here are five of my favorites to look for:

For readers who want a dose of philosophy with their board book: Let's Make Rabbits by Leo Lionni

For readers learning their letters (with bonus song at the end): The ABC Bunny by Wanda Wanda Ga'g (author of Milions of Cats)

For readers who aren't into sweet, fluffy rabbits: Big Rabbit's Bad Mood by Ramona Bădescu

For readers who like to see goodness triumph: The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes by Dubose Heyward (Author) and Marjorie Flack (Illustrator)

For readers who like to laugh or miss The Odd Couple: Duck! Rabbit! by By Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld
