The Country Bunny And The Little Gold Shoes

The Country Bunny And The Little Gold Shoes
by DuBose Hayward
published in 1939
Illustrated by Marjorie Flack

This book is a literary treasure. If you have not read this to your children, or to your grandchildren, or for yourself, you should! Happy Easter!

One day a little country girl bunny with a brown skin
and a little cotton-ball of a tail said, "Some day I shall
grow up to be the Easter Bunny: you wait and see!"
Then all of the big white bunnies who lived in fine houses,
and the Jack Rabbits with long legs who can run fast,
laughed at the little Cottontail and told her to go
back to the country and eat a carrot.
But she said, "Wait and see!"

Have you read this book?

I hope you have a great week 
Love, Laura
