Florence and Wendell Minor, the husband-and-wife team behind If You Were a Penguin, If You Were a Panda Bear, and Christmas Tree!, have created a picture book treasure featuring a cast of adorable bunnies.
Tickles the bunny is the smallest bunny in her family. Her siblings always go on adventures without her while Tickles reads in her favorite spot. On one particular day when Tickles was left again, she starts to read her book, How to Be a Bigger Bunny. The book talks about how you should never give up and to follow your dreams and Tickles winds up on an adventure of her own. Her furry family is in trouble and she must become a bigger bunny and save the day. Can she do it? This is a sweet story about how being little doesn’t mean you can’t be a BIG help. It”s perfect for Easter time and springtime as well as year-round reading aloud and sharing. The artwork and story are reminiscent of picture book classics by Margaret Wise Brown and Richard Scarry.
Reminder! This year Easter falls on Sunday, April 16, 2017!
