And That Was His Home
Reviewed in the United States on April 4, 2014
"Spring, spring, spring," sang the frog, from a pond by fresh green grasses and flowers. "Spring," said the groundhog, his arms raised in celebration.
So begins this lovely book, telling how a small brown bunny goes down the road and down the road one day when the butteflies are swaying on stalks and a flora botanica of the brightly colored small flowers are unfolding in the warm sunlight. The bunny meets three baby robins still wearing bits of their blue shells, a somewhat inhospitable ground-hog, and the frog in his bog. In none of their homes can this sweet-faced bunny find his home. UNTIL.....
The Little Golden Book is a poem, written like a small song by Margaret Wise Brown and illustrated by Garth Williams with the precision and color of the millefleurs tapestries of the Middle Ages. It is loving, friendly, unfussy, and perfect, a beloved book since 1956---reprinted fresh and sparkling new as children, parents, and grandparents remember it.
The book boards are sturdy, heavy cardboard, the pages are strong enough for years of turning by small hands, and the Amazon price is unbelievably low. I have just purchased five copies as Easter-spring greetings for family & friends and yes, one for myself.
No reservations or reader alerts. "Home for a Bunny" is a heritage gift at a peeps price.
