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.
