About this item

With twenty-one baby bunnies to look after, mother bunny Cottontail abandons her dream of becoming an Easter Bunny. But when Grandfather Bunny spies her perfectly behaved brood, he’s so impressed that he makes Cottontail the most important Easter Bunny of all! Originally published in 1939, Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoescelebrates the timeless values of equality, hard work, and patient ambition. Featuring the Caldecott Award winner Marjorie Flack’s original hand-drawn illustrations, a beautifully redesigned cover, and bonus downloadable audio, this seventy-fifth anniversary heirloom edition is perfect for sharing with a new generation of young readers.

When eggs need to be delivered to all the world?s children the night before Easter, only the fastest bunnies are fit for the job. Country Bunny, being a mama to 21 little ones, thinks that perhaps her dream of being the Easter Bunny is a hopeless one. But brave little Country Bunny cannot be put aside so easily, and through her determination she shows everyone, including herself, that her lifelong hopes for having a family and having the most important job of all can both come true. Enchanted with Country Bunny?s spirit and grace, Grandfather Bunny sends her out the night before Easter to make sure every child gets his or her Easter eggs. In her little gold shoes, she runs all over the world, until at last she comes home to fill the Easter baskets of each of her own little bunnies. Whimsical and sweet with resplendent illustrations in Easter egg pastels, Country Bunny?s story is as magical today as it was in 1939.

Celebrate the possibilities in a 75th anniversary edition of DuBose Heyward?s timeless tale, complete with bonus downloadable audio.
