What an adorable book!

On April 1st, while Robert heads off to school, he spies a rabbit. On April 2nd, he sees two rabbits. As the days fly by, the number of rabbits increases. Some are in plain sight, others require a little searching to find. Kids will have fun counting all 28 bunnies gathered round a campfire as their dinner, a giant head of lettuce, roasts on a spit.

The wonderful pen and ink wash illustrations are by New Yorker cartoonist, Nurit Karlin.

“‘The April Rabbits” by David Cleveland and Murit Karlin is a great childrens book. I got this book when I was in elementary and i’ve read it several times and still love it today.

Robert has a very interesting April, as every day he notices more and more rabbits doing some rather imaginative things.

A humorous counting book. I love how Robert's mother takes him to the eye doctor because he's seeing so many rabbits. The illustrations are all black and white, but still fun and makes it a little more like a hide and seek to count all the rabbits on each page.
I am apparently the only person on the internet to love this book, and I am willing to take on that burden for everyone else. April Rabbits probably contributed to my love of list-making and my latent regard for springtime. And bunnies.
This very humorous, imaginative story with a hilarious ending is one of my family's favorites. It was one of the first of its kind in a style that was copied ever after.
Holly adored this but it was so so long....and so so long ago that we had to read it to her, because her birthday is in April.
The first few times I read this book I laughed so hard I cried. It is brilliantly funny and mind-bending.
