This book is fantastic. A little bunny is excited to grow up but his mother reminds him of all the things he must know. He listens carefully and tries to be patient and then the most important lesson of all, how to avoid foxes, ends up being put to the test. Little Cottontail did learn his lessons and proves that he is ready to be a grown-up bunny. It's a little book full of sweet virtues, just perfect for little ears and eyes.

A Little Golden Book from my youth, re-read as an adult. I can understand why this one is still in print--cute bunny illustrations and a nice family-centered moral. Even a bit of tension at its peak!
