April's theme!

There are many classic stories that have rabbits as main characters.

I was torn between Peter Rabbit and the Velveteen Rabbit....and Alice in Wonderland's white rabbit....and Brer Rabbit...and...and...and.
Once again, there were just too many books to list.
In the end, The Velveteen Rabbit won out because it is such a sweet story of hope.


April's story: The Velveteen Rabbit
April's ornament: rabbit/bunny
April's challenge: make an Easter themed decoration too...

The Velteteen Rabbit Book Cover


"THERE was once a velveteen rabbit, and in the beginning he was really splendid. He was fat and bunchy, as a rabbit should be; his coat was spotted brown and white, he had real thread whiskers, and his ears were lined with pink sateen. On Christmas morning, when he sat wedged in the top of the Boy's stocking, with a sprig of holly between his paws, the effect was charming."
