“It is difficult to believe that this very modern feminist tale was originally written in 1939. A gem of a fantasy in which kindness and cleverness win out over size and brawn.” A ringing endorsement if there ever was one, from Learning Magazine! This is a sweet story in which Mama Bunny dreams of being one of the elite team of Easter Bunnies who deliver eggs to children. But she's small and brown and from the country, not big and white and sophisticated like the others… and on top of that, she's got 21 baby bunnies to mother. (You can see where this is going.) Seriously, though, while the themes of equality are way ahead of their time, the story itself is entertaining to stand on its own, and it's not often that a children's book is both so powerful and so adorable. This is the 75th anniversary edition, which includes an audiobook!
