Review

"It is difficult to believe that this very modern feminist tale was originally written in 1939. A gem of a fantasy in which kindness and cleverness win out over size and brawn."--Learning Magazine

3.0 out of 5 stars The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes. March 10 2003
By Ben
Format:Hardcover
According to this book, there isn't just one Easter Bunny, but five. When one of them gets too old, then a new one is chose by the grandfather bunny. A poor country bunny named Cottontail wants to be an Easter Bunny. She eventually gets older and has many children. She teaches her children to take care of the house. Then word comes around that one of the Easter bunnies needs to be replaced, so all the bunnys go to the Easter Egg palace to see who can become the next Easter Bunny. Cottontail turns out to be the wisest, swiftest, and kindest bunny. She goes to deliver an egg to a sick boy over many mountains. She goes up the last one, but falls. Then the Grandfather Bunny gives her a special pair of golden shoes that allow her to be able to jump super high and fast, so she can get the egg deliverede. This book is well-written, but I don't think the illustrations are very good. It is written by Du Bose Heyward, and illustrated by Marjorie Hack.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Country Bunny and The little Golden Shoes April 27 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
In 2004, I am 45 years old, but this book has been a part of my whole life. I was first exposed to it by my mom , and it is part of my earliest childhood easter memories. When I had children, it became part of their earliest memories. They love the story, the pictures, the whole package--it is incredibly readable and captures the attention of even my teenager. They both have their own copies, which they have assured me, will go with them when they leave and so I must order one for myself, since my brother got the one from OUR childhood!!! Make memories!! have a wonderful time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Story Dec 28 2003
Format:Hardcover
This is a well told story about a mother bunny and her many children. I pull this book out each spring; my children really enjoy the story. Even my youngest who is restless could sit through this story (41 pages) when she was two-years-old. The main focus of the story is the mother bunny´¿s desire to become the Easter Bunny. The story also contains delightful descriptions of the mother bunny´¿s childhood, the selection of the Easter bunnies and the difficult tasks that Easter Bunnies face each year. What I enjoy most about this story is the mother bunny's relationship with her children.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best easter book ever! April 22 2003
Format:Paperback
This was my absolute favorite book as a child! It's really one of the only ones I remember besides my Mother Goose book. I bought it for my step-daughter and she loved it as well. It's such a sweet book with pictures that will stay in a child's memory forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes Feb. 11 2003
Format:Hardcover
I am hoping to order a hard copy of this book for my son, who is now 10 1/2 years old, for Easter. This book has been one of those that we read almost once a week - I read it to him. Each time we read I become more animated, knowing the story. He loves it, and I have grown to look forward to reading it to him. It is a beautiful story about perserverence, strength and dedication from a Mom's point of view. It speaks so eloquently about goals and keeping life in focus all at the same time. Love it! (And I love the fact that it was written in 1939.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Country Bunny Touches Hearts Jan. 23 2003
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book is hands down the best Easter book we've ever read. It has touched our hearts for 3 generations of my rather large family. Everyone agrees that Country Bunny is pure love poured out on pages. It was the very first book we purchased for our first child - before she was even born. My sister is expecting now, so I'm back to purchase yet another copy. Every family should own this book, for whose heart doesn't benefit from beauty?

5.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly modernist book from 1939 July 19 2002
Format:Paperback
DuBose Heyward's 1939 classic, "The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes," is surprisingly modernist given the time period in which it was written. When so much of the world was (and is) focused on heroes and men in general, what a gentle and lovely surprise to come across a book which celebrates the rabbit--a lady rabbit!--who becomes the Easter bunny.
With elements of Aesop peeping in and out of the text (not the least of which includes the fable of the tortoise and the hare), Heyward manages to make a rabbit with 21 little children sound not only sane, but brilliant. The Country Bunny (or Little Cottontail Mother, as she is called throughout) gives her children each small chores to keep them busy, contribute to the overall quality of their shared family life, and make them feel like valued members of the group. They grow up to be sweet, cheerful, polite, and industrious bunnies, and the Country Bunny uses their fine breeding to great effect to achieve an audition for the role of Easter Bunny.
Heyward's text is inimitably enriched by the sweet pictures of artist Marjorie Flack. The bunnies are plush and adorable, the scenery idyllic, and the colors bright as Technicolor. This is a trip down Memory Lane, even for those who didn't grow up with the book, and a future memory-maker for any child who loves Easter and Easter bunnies.
