One of my children wanted to read a Mother's Day book and this was one of very few we own. I like that in this story, the mother rabbit teaches the Little Cottontail how to survive and take care of himself before he can be considered a grownup. The idea of teaching children how to live is very important and reaches to the core of mothering. I like that this book teaches kids that there's things they have to know as they grow up. They don't just get bigger. They get more capable, responsible, and ...more

I loved this book as a child and still love it; my first grader is so-so about it but will let me read it to him.
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!

This has a totally cute, fuzzy little baby bunny in it. I swear the illustrations are as darling as the real thing. Only those who prefer foxes might object to this book.
