When given a choice of books to review through Zondervan Publishing / Zonderkidz, I chose to review Bunny’s First Spring by Sally Lloyd-Jones and illustrated by David McPhail, because HEY! Springtime and Easter are just around the corner, and this seemed like a great book to read to my toddler Tessa!
While Tessa is still in the “destroy all books that aren’t board books” stage when left to her own devices, she does enjoy a good “big kid” paper page book when mom is reading to her! So I thought I’d give this book a chance and risk the “scribble on and at rip anything paper” wrath of Tessa.
About the Book
When a bunny is born in spring, he sees the world as green and new and full of hope. But as the seasons change, the bunny worries that the earth may be dying. In bestselling author’s Sally Lloyd-Jones’ latest picture book celebrating the Easter season and rebirth, nature speaks to the bunny, assuring him of something more. Award-winning artist David McPhail’s whimsical illustrations reflect the beauty of the world around us as Lloyd-Jones’ inspirational text prompts readers to celebrate the changing seasons and the miracle of nature’s rebirth.
