Review

“Delightful. What mother, human, or rabbit, doesn’t want to keep that new little one in their sight at all times?” -- Brightly

From the Back Cover

Clement Hurd redrew some of his pictures for this new edition of the profoundly comforting story of a bunny's imaginary game of hide-and-seek and the lovingly steadfast mother who finds him every time.

Margaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories during her life, but she is best known for Goodnight Moon and Runaway Bunny. Even though she died over 45 years ago, her books still sell very well. Margaret loved animals. Most of her books have animals as characters in the story. She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them. Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or poem. She thought this made children think harder when they are reading. She wrote all the time. There are many scraps of paper where she quickly wrote down a story idea or a poem. She said she dreamed stories and then had to write them down in the morning before she forgot them. She tried to write the way children wanted to hear a story, which often isn't the same way an adult would tell a story. She also taught illustrators to draw the way a child saw things. One time she gave two puppies to someone who was going to draw a book with that kind of dog. The illustrator painted many pictures one day and then fell asleep. When he woke up, the papers he painted on were bare. The puppies had licked all the paint off the paper. Margaret died after surgery for a bursting appendix while in France. She had many friends who still miss her. They say she was a creative genius who made a room come to life with her excitement. Margaret saw herself as something else - a writer of songs and nonsense.

3.0 out of 5 stars Want to love it...
By Eben Kostbar on July 7, 2019
I really really want to love this book because I love Good Night Moon and this story is so cute until you get to this page (see attached photo). Every time my husband and I read that page to our little boys, it bothers us so returning it today. Sorry, just being honest.

5.0 out of 5 stars What happens when a little bunny runs away from home? Timeless
By 📚Bookwyrm📚 on September 16, 2018
The Runaway Bunny is a timeless classic, proven by the fact that the hardback I just bought for my niece was the 75th anniversary edition. While I know probably hundreds of thousands, maybe even millions, of children have read The Runaway Bunny by now, including my own, a scene that is indelibly etched in my memory is of a retreat where I witnessed a man read this book to a room of 50 or 60 women. These woman were so focused, intent, and moved by this book that you could have heard a pin drop from the moment the gentleman started reading until he finished. There weren’t many dry eyes in the place as the women related to the type of love that follows and waits for the loved one to turn back to them. It is a love that waits and watches, never forcing itself upon another, but patiently and diligently keeps guard and maintains a place of safety for the loved one’s return.

That’s the magic of this story which was written three-fourths of a century before helicopter parenting was a thing. This isn’t helicopter parenting, but it’s what safe parenting ought to be. The mother rabbit knows that the child needs to run away, to practice independence, to be free to make mistakes, but she allows this freedom in a gentle guardianship. Almost all her actions are simply to watch over and keep her little bunny safe and to be there when he has stretched his legs enough and needs to rest in safety. The mother rabbit doesn’t snatch the little bunny/bird out of the air, she forms a tree in which he can safely perch and rest when he chooses to. It is the best of love that allows room to grow and the safety in which to do it.

Small children will relate to this story and to the desire to run away, to be independent, but they will also relate to their desire to have a parent waiting for them in a place of safety, ready to offer rest and refreshment when their wandering ways carry them back home. They will also love and relate to the many adventures the little bunny envisions as he dreams of a future where he is free and grown, ready to wander where he will to conquer the world.

I’m so glad I picked this up, because I admit I read through it after it showed up. (Quality control, you know, lol.) The retrospective was quite illuminating, as I had no idea about the history of the author, the artist, or the story. I may have to buy a copy of the edition for myself. I had picked this up after I got a shower invitation from my niece lately asking people to bring a book instead of a card along with their gift. I grabbed three of our old childhood standbys: [[ASIN:0544874358 Stellaluna 25th Anniversary Edition]], [[ASIN:0152010289 Verdi]], and [[ASIN:0062489941 The Runaway Bunny: A 75th Anniversary Retrospective]]. It’s so hard to choose so few out of so many of our favorite books, but she may be inundated with more books as her son gets older. ;) I also ordered a new favorite, [[ASIN:1773210556 A Boy and a House]], but I’m not sure it will get here in time for her shower.

Highly recommended; simply one of the sweetest picture books for children out there. The fascinating retrospective is a wonderful bonus.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic with beautiful illustrations
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 26, 2020
This book is just beautiful. The full-page illustrations are wonderful and both of my children (6) and (3) adore it. It is easy to bring this book to life. I created a simple story basket with bunny ears, paper puppets, and some miniature bunnies! and the children loved playing out the story. It encourages them to use their imagination, coming up with different things they could turn into! And I can challenge them by telling them how I would catch them!
