"A bunny's a delightful habit,
No home's complete without a rabbit." - Marshmallow
Did I use this photo-taking session as an excuse to break into the peeps early and while my kids were at school? Of course not. (She says as she dusts neon colored sugar from the corners of her mouth.)
Who could celebrate Easter and springtime without pastel colors and white fluffy bunnies? Marshmallow by Clare Turlay Newberry is perfect for spring themed story time. The story reminds me of a picture book version of the popular chapter book series, Bunnicula. Both are about pet rabbits who get introduced to the pets that already reside in their respective homes, and about the older pets getting to know and eventually love them.
In this story, a very spoiled tabby cat named Oliver gets a surprise one day when his owner Miss Tilly brings home a new pet, a baby rabbit. At first, Oliver isn't pleased with the competition, but as Marshmallow the rabbit grows, Oliver learns to befriend and love him. recommended age: 3-6
