I love reading to my little ones and that Jax is at the age where he can enjoy books with me! He just turned one and is really excited whenever I read to him! Since he’s a baby, everything is new for him so it was fun to read about another first; Bunny’s First Spring!
The phrasing is very lyrical and while it doesn’t rhyme, it still has the same feel as rhyming books in the way that it’s written. It reminds me a lot of poems and has the same magic and whimsy to it.
This little bunny is born in the spring and the book takes us through the first seasons of his life. He grows and changes with the seasons and all discoveries and experiences are magical and new to him.
The bunny worries when spring fades and fall and winter begin that the earth is dying. I thought Lloyd-Jones did a great job of brining this up and explaining the seasons. I never really thought about before what it must be like for children to experience the earth’s changes and not really understand it. Reading this to my five year old we talked about the seasons and she had a lot of questions. It was interesting to hear her perspective that was similar to the bunnies.
Bunny’s First Spring is wonderfully written and beautifully illustrated and children will love this little bunny’s adventurous spirit and sweet heart.
