In one of four small seasonal picture books created by veteran children's book illustrator R. W. Alley, Gretchen turns to her vivid imagination when she is left behind while her siblings swim in the ocean.
New edition of DuBose Heyward's 75-year-old, still-touching story of a humble mother rabbit hoping to become one of the world's five Easter Bunnies. Somewhat dated in its portrait of the "proper role" of a woman (or woman bunny), it transcends its time with a hearty helping of charm. Just one of many kids' books reviewed at www.infodad.com.
