A clever leprechaun story
How To Catch a Leprechaun by Adam Wallace
This is another fun book in the series of books written by Adam Wallace. A very engaging story written in rhyme with clever ideas of how to try and trap a leprechaun. Leprechauns are smart and clever though and leave a trail of glitter, pranks and laugh aloud scenes. There are lots of great books in this series including one for Easter!
Bunny books for Spring and Easter
Bunny’s Big Surprise by Phyllis Limbacher Tildes
Bunny finds a big egg in the wetlands near his home. He checks with Goose, Heron and Osprey to see if it’s their egg. It’s not theirs so he takes it home and paints it for Easter. He is surprised to see what comes out of the egg when it hatches-an Easter Alligator. Bunny helps the baby gator find its mother.
The Easter Egg by Jan Brett
Hoppi wants to win the contest for the best decorated Easter Egg. When he is out gathering ideas and supplies to decorate his egg he finds a robin’s egg on the ground. Mother Robin can’t keep it warm and take care of the other two in the nest. Hopi helps Mother Robin and doesn’t have time to decorate an egg. The Easter Bunny recognizes Hopi for his good deed! One of my favorite Easter Bunny books!
Too Many Carrots by Katy Hudson
Rabbit loves carrots! He loves them so much they fill up his house and he doesn’t have room to sleep. His animal friends take turns inviting him to stay at their house. When he accepts their offers and brings all his carrots and tries to fit them in their houses, disaster happens. Rabbit realizes that it’s best to share his carrots, not just collect and store carrots.
Grab That Rabbit by Polly Faber
Mrs Sprat is not happy that a rabbit has eaten all her carrots. When Mrs Sprat tries to catch him a hawk grabs him first. He’s too heavy for the hawk who drops him right by Mrs Sprat. She decides to have rabbit stew for dinner. As she carries the rabbit into the house she feels how soft and fluffy he is. She decides she doesn’t want rabbit stew after all and they both live very happily together.
Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! by Candace Fleming
If your grandkids love bunny books they will love this one! Mr McGreely has worked hard planting and caring for his garden. He can’t wait to harvest and eat his carrots, lettuce, peas and tomatoes. Three hungry bunnies are also eager to eat the veggie in his garden. This humorous story has lots of repeating phrases that kids love to join in saying-especially “Muncha, Muncha, Muncha”!
A Home for A Rabbit by Margaret Wise Brown
It’s Spring and a bunny is looking for a home of his own. He visits a variety of animals and asks them where their home is. He keeps looking until he meets another bunny. His new bunny friend invites him to share her burrow. This book, written in 1956, is a classic and one my grandchildren have asked for over and over. One of my favorite bunny books for spring!
