The Country Bunny and The Little Gold Shoes

Are you familiar with this Easter story? I had only heard of it last year and after some research decided to ask for it as a gift for Ms. S's birthday this year. Well, I read it Friday night and then I read it again to the kids and I do declare this is the best Easter book I have ever read.

I half want to tell you the story and I half don't so I'm going to be mischievous.

I will tell you that she has 21 children and that there are 5 Easter bunnies rather then 1. And, that I wouldn't mind children like her little bunnies or those little gold shoes in my basket this year.

Oh man!
This was my favorite book when I was little. Easter or not!
I have eight siblings, so I felt some weird connection to it.
And I loved all their little chores and the little illustrations.
So much goodness in there.
I was recently surprised to find it again and see how long it is!
Thanks for the good memories :)
