What better time to talk about one of my all time favorite books as a little one than Easter! The Country Bunny is a gorgeous book first published in 1939. The illustrations are just as beautiful and vibrant today as when I first laid my eyes on them as a bebe. The illustrations are by the incredibly talented Marjorie Flack and the story written by DuBose Heyward. It is the story of a country bunny mother of 21 bunnies who is given the high honor of being the Easter Bunny. Even though she has a lot of responsibility as the mother of 21 babes she still manages to succeed in her mission! The lively illustrations and story will always hold a special place in my heart. Happy Easter.
