Recommends it for: Easter time reading for kids of all persuasions including vegans; kids who love animals & nature
Oh, I felt all soft and warm and fuzzy as I read this. This book is appropriate for the youngest child and, most importantly, children who come from families that normally celebrate Easter and those who do not. I read it because I’d read it was a vegan friendly Easter book (no animal milk chocolate bunnies, eggs for human consumption, etc.) and I was delighted to find that was true. Easter is “new life” and that is compatible with Christianity but also appropriate for non-Christians. I love the ...more

An absolutely adorable story of a little bunny who goes looking for Easter. What is Easter, exactly? Is it a grass basket, sweet berries, an egg... or is it perhaps all of these things, and even more? As bunny carries on his search and helps his (super cute!) meadow friends, he comes to find Easter in his own special way.

I love this book! The story and illustrations are so warm and cozy and hold such a sweet meaning without being didactic or cloying. It's a wonderful celebration of spring, and o

I really thought this story was well done. I love how the rabbit went to several friends as he learned about what Easter was. He slowly gets the basket figured out and then so generously gives it up to help a bird make a home for his babies. The best part is at the end he is led back to his friends to see new birth of many babies. The moral of the story was that the meaning of Easter isn't baskets and candy....its the celebration of new birth.

In the story the little bunny is looking for Easter. In his search he ends up helping all of his friends by collecting branches, digging holes, collecting berries, and in the end she gave her basket away to Robin as a next. We learned in the story that Easter comes with new life, it is new life. Children would have fun learning how animals lived in the wild and what they need to survive.

Out of all of the books that I read today, this one was most likely my favorite. I know that Children have these sorts of questions as well, just like Little Bunny has questions. I think that it is told in such as way as to be easily understood and that children would find the pictures very pleasant, just like I did. A fun little Easter Tale.

The author seems to have left out that Easter is a religious holiday. If someone would introduce the poor bunny to Jesus then he could stop looking for Easter because he would understand its true meaning....which isn't about baskets, babies, sweets or springtime weather. A cute story but a definite miss.

Great book about the meaning of Easter that you can use in a classroom. You can't incorporate Jesus but this book tells the purpose of celebrating Easter and shows that doing good and serving others is the best way to celebrate that renewal of self and life. Great teaching opportunities.

Faith Friends 2016 - What does Easter smell, feel, and taste like? Great book to use for a jumping off place into the true meaning of Easter

Adorable! It is a book more about spring than anything. A non-religious look at the Easter season and spring for little ones.

Such a sweet and innocent story about the moral of Easter and new life! It resembles Christ without talking about Him.

I think this book should be titled, "Looking for Spring" because it wasn't a typical "Easter" book. Most kids know about the Easter Bunny so it seems strange that this bunny doesn't even know what Easter is! That being said, I thought it had a great message about helping others.

I loved this book and so did my little girl. What a sweet story about a little bunny searching for Easter and the wonder he discovers. It is a great Easter book for children who are too young understand fully the REAL Easter story.

This book is an adorable way to teach the real meaning of the Spring season and the idea that Easter means "new life." It's a wonderful story to read aloud to children. We've borrowed this book a few times from the library.
