A Martin Luther quote ends this book, reminding readers that God has written the promise of new life in every springtime leaf. But in the beginning, there is a bunny, born in the spring, who sees that the earth is new, like me. As other newly born animals take their first steps or fly from the nest, the bunny notices the beauty of the world. As the seasons change, the bunny becomes attuned to the cycle of life, though, at times, it frightens him: the world seems to be dying before his eyes. And Yet-And Yet! the woodpecker taps. Sure enough, after a winters sleep, the bunny understands that life can be resurrected from apparent death, and the suns warmth can return to gladden hearts. McPhails ink-and-watercolor artwork displays both the innocence and concern that come as the bunny begins to understand that the world is complicated, and it culminates in the joy of fresh beginning. Although this can be read on a secular level, young Christian children will see overtones of the Jesus story in Lloyd-Jones comforting words.
