Bouncy Bunny Books

While I anxiously await my yearly delivery of sugary treats, my thoughts hop over to bunnies.  I do love a good bunny book. You may know the rabbits from Goodnight Moon, Peter Rabbit and the Velveteen Rabbit, but here are some of my other favorite (non-chocolate) bunnies:

Easter Traditions

This year, Easter is celebrated on the last day of March in the Western world. If you're curious about a few of the typical traditions surrounding the holiday, try these books: 

Happy Holidays

No, that’s not a typo.  This is a Springtime edition of Happy Holidays, because this weekend brings us both Passover and Easter.  These are celebrations that bring families together and encourage even the youngest members to participate.  While tradition usually dictates our observance of the holidays, there are also DVDs and videos for children that give us the true meanings of the holidays – and some of the fun things, too.
