Bunny's First Spring by Sally Lloyd-Jones is a delightful read-to-me children's book on the renewal of spring. Bunny is born in the spring when the earth is warming and grows and plays in the summer. The earth is growing and green and all is good. Everything around is growing and lush. Then something begins to happen. The days turn cool and the green turns drab and brown. Things start leaving. First the leaves fall off the trees and there are no more frogs in the pond. Bunny grows fearful and thinks that his beautiful earth must be dying. Bunny is getting colder and more afraid so he does what he has always done. He runs into his hole to his mama. He gets sleepy and falls to sleep with his family. And he sleeps and sleeps until once again the world renews into Spring.
This is a great delightful book on the way of the world and how the seasons change and how the animals react to the change. It would be a good book to read to children of a young age. It has many colorful pictures for them to enjoy and not many sentences on each page which with my children anyway that was important to them that the pages are turned fairly quickly during the reading of the story. I would recommend this book for toddler through school age children.
I received this book from Booksneeze for this review.
