Since it's an Easter book, this is a little out of season, but my three-year-old had never heard it and she really wanted to know if her interpretation of the story based on the pictures was correct, so we read it in January anyway.

My favorite thing about the book, of course, is that the title character, who wishes her whole life to become an Easter bunny, is able to do so precisely because of the way she develops the necessary skills as she parents her 21 children. Though this subtle message about being able to follow one's dreams and be a mother at the same time is not the central focus of the book, it does set a nice example for my three daughters, and I appreciated it. I will definitely be reading this book aloud again at Easter this year!
