Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Country Bunny is a lady, and she attains the exalted position of Easter Bunny in spite of her responsibilities as a mother of twenty-one children. That the story ends with success and a reward is, of course, as every child would wish.

Like so many other classic stories for children, this one grew from being told and retold to a child for many years. That is why Mr. Heyward gives credit on the title-page to his eight-year-old daughter, Jennifer.

Review:

As a children's librarian "The Country Bunny and the LIttle Gold Shoes" was been my favorite book to read to children. My own children requested this story every year at Easter and now the tradition has been passed on to my granddaughter. This is a wonderful story of a young rabbit's determination not to let others defer her dreams and ambitions.
