My favorite picture book to read around Easter (or really any time) is The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes by Du Bose Heyward. This was one of my favorite books that I read as a little girl and I have loved sharing it with my own daughters. It was written way back in 1939 and I think it’s a timeless story.

A little country bunny dreams of growing up to become the Easter Bunny. She gets married and has 21 little children (they ARE bunnies guys). When she once again voices her dream to become the Easter Bunny everyone laughs.

How can a bunny who is just a mama from the country become the most special bunny in the land? This is a gorgeous book that gently teaches about fighting through prejudice and following your dreams.

The illustrations by Marjorie Hack are my favorite part of the book. They are so sweet and beautiful they make my heart ache. Every time I read this book I tear up a bit. It’s a lovely little reminder to be true to your heart.
