As he hops along a little rabbit wonders what it would be like to be green as grass, tall as fir trees, hard as rocks, and flutter like butterflies.


The national bestseller about a curious rabbit is now available in a sturdy board book edition, just right for little hands, Easter baskets, and welcoming spring. Caldecott Medalist and New York Times‒bestselling author Kevin Henkes's glorious story stars a rambunctious and adventurous little white rabbit who discovers, in the end, that a mother's love is constant and true. Little white rabbit hops along, exploring and wondering. What would it be like to be as tall as a tree? Or as still as a rock? Or green, like the bright spring world around him? It's wonderful to wonder about many things and exciting to explore the world—but true happiness is knowing where you belong and who loves you best of all. Bright greens, yellows, pinks, and purples—the welcome colors of spring—dance across the pages of this pitch-perfect and critically acclaimed book for very young children. This board book by award-winning author Kevin Henkes is a wonderful choice for Easter baskets, as a gift for a new baby, for reading before bedtime, or for sharing anytime.

The soft, fresh yellows, pinks, and especially greens of Henkes's illustrations make this book feel like a Spring morning. "Little White Rabbit hopped along. When he hopped through the high grass, he wondered what it would be like to be green...when he hopped over the rock, he wondered what it would be like not to be able to move." While you read, make sure to wonder about the same things Little Rabbit does--then go outside and wonder about the things you see as you hop along.

"The bunny of the title, the central and only character in this sweet, diaphanous tale, makes its way, page by page, through a colour field of verdant greens, bubble-gum pinks and cerulean blues – the colours of spring. What could be more welcome now than a harbinger of better, warmer, softer days to come?"
