The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes

The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes

The country bunny is a lady, and she attains the exalted position of Easter Bunny in spite of her responsibilities as the mother of twenty-one children. That the story ends with success and a reward is, of course, as every child would wish.

Like so many other classic stories for children, this one grew from being told and retold to a child for many years. That is why Mr. Heyward gives credit on the title-page to his eight-year-old daughter, Jenifer.

    Without a doubt this is one of my favorite books to read to children. DuBose Heyward is famous for many books but this is the only children's book he ever wrote. He made up the story at the request of...

    This is one of my favorite books from childhood. I bought a new copy to share it with my boys, as mine was falling apart (literally). Well worth the investment! This book was originally published in 1...
