By Linda W. Rooks
I read this story with my grandchildren, they loved it and I did as well. I am so happy to have a story speak of how the bunny became the Easter Bunny through his sacrifice for the little angel.
It may be a fictional reading but it helps to have Easter mean more than eggs, candy and baskets. They did a great job in the story and the illustrations. This book will now be a traditional reading at Easter at Grandma's.
Bluegrass BabyKyAge: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful bookApril 3, 2015Bluegrass BabyKyAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0My 4 year old totally enjoyed this book. The story and illustrations held his attention throughout the book and he was asking questions along the way about Easter, angels and why Hal was stealing carrots. It holds a lot of great lessons and can be used as a good teaching tool. I would recommend this book for children (and adults) of all ages
tumcsecTuscaloosa, ALAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A wonderful addition to any child's Easter basketApril 2, 2015tumcsecTuscaloosa, ALAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A wonderful book for young children. It will open the door for discussions about what Easter is all about and why we celebrate it. A rabbit named Hal is stealing carrots from a farmer's patch and runs away right before getting caught. He finds himself in the forest, lost, not knowing which way to go. He meets a duck, a monkey, a young angel and soon a tiger looking for prey. Hal rescues the little angel from the tiger by his willingness to sacrifice himself to save her. A similar concept to what Jesus did for us. Only Jesus was sinless and Hal, not so much, because he was stealing carrots. But he was willing to die to save another. I enjoyed how the author elaborated at the end about the full moon of spring each year being tied into Easter and why it's not on the same date each year. I also visited her website (bunnysideofeaster.com) and found interesting back stories on the book as well as fun games for children and information for parents and grandparents on how best to use the story to tell about sacrifice and great love.
I received this book free from Bookfun.org for my honest review, which I have given.
Gee D.5 Stars Out Of 5Very inspirational!April 1, 2015Gee D.Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book was such an awesome book. I enjoyed it as an adult. I have a young one that I am going to read this to him the night before Easter. The Bunny Side of Easter told children in a delightful way about how Easter has two sides and also how one can be selfish and how doing a favor was one of the best things to do for others. Love this story!
HeatherRichey, MTAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great Kids BookMarch 30, 2015HeatherRichey, MTAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I really enjoyed this book. I read it to my little boy right after I received it. He loved it and wanted me to read it again the next day. I like that this brings the magic of the Easter bunny for a young child to a Christian point of view. Too often we embrace the commercial side of holidays and don't look for the Christian side of it. I want my kids to know that Easter is because of Jesus and this gives me a way. I don't want him to think that Easter is just the bunny and candy. Thank you for an awesome book.
I received a free copy of this book from The Book Club Network for my honest review.
