The Spring Rabbit: An Easter Tale - Angela McAllister
This beautifully illustrated tale shows young children how the Easter Bunny came to be. A gorgeous book to give for Easter or spring.
At the end of winter, a girl named Spring awakes from her slumber in the snow. She travels through the forest and finds a little bird that has fallen from a tree. The bird is so cold and weak that Spring can hardly hear its heartbeat, so she turns it into a rabbit with thick, soft fur so it will be warm. To show their gratitude, birds gather eggs which Rabbit collects in a beautiful basket. Spring tells Rabbit to give them to the children so that they will know Spring is here.
