The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes

When one of the Easter bunnies – there are five – grows old and can no longer run fast, the old, wise, and kind Grandfather Bunny who lives at the Palace of Easter Eggs calls the bunnies together from the whole world to select the very best one to take the place....One day, a little country girl bunny with a brown skin and a little cotton-ball of a tail said, "Some day I shall grow up to be an Easter Bunny – you wait and see!"

But the elegant white rabbits and the big Jack rabbits with long fast legs laugh, and the little bunny instead grows up to be a wife and mother bunny to twenty-one bunny babies. She figures her dream of being an Easter Bunny is long gone... but the next time Grandfather Bunny needs to choose, he decides that wise, kind, swift, and brave Cottontail is just the bunny for the job.

"It is difficult to believe that this very modern feminist tale was originally written in 1939. A gem of a fantasy in which kindness and cleverness win out over size and brawn." -- Learning Magazine
