Self confidence, perseverance, a woman achiever who manages to mix work and kids and has great love for kids, and gorgeous pictures of beautiful Easter eggs. What more could you want from a book?! ( )

This book follows Cottontail, a small mother bunny who aspires to be an Easter Bunny in spite of her responsibilities as a mother of twenty-one children. She applies to be the Easter Bunny, but is scorned by the elite Easter Bunnies, and they tell her to go home. But she doesn’t let that stop her. What happens when she returns to try out for the Easter Bunny? Can she reach her dreams? Will she have the skills? ( )

My very favorite Easter (and bunny) story. Not only are the illustrations charming and the story good for its own sake, it also has a surprisingly progressive message: that women really can have it all - 21 children AND an important job. A review from the inside cover: "It's difficult to believe that this very modern feminist tale was originally written in 1939..." (-Learning).

We hear of the Easter Bunny, who comes each Easter Day before sunrise to bring eggs for boys and girls, so we think that there is only one.
