This book follows Cottontail, a small mother bunny who aspires to be an Easter Bunny in spite of her responsibilities as a mother of twenty-one children. She applies to be the Easter Bunny, but is scorned by the elite Easter Bunnies, and they tell her to go home. But she doesn’t let that stop her. What happens when she returns to try out for the Easter Bunny? Can she reach her dreams? Will she have the skills? ( )

My very favorite Easter (and bunny) story. Not only are the illustrations charming and the story good for its own sake, it also has a surprisingly progressive message: that women really can have it all - 21 children AND an important job. A review from the inside cover: "It's difficult to believe that this very modern feminist tale was originally written in 1939..." (-Learning).

Cottontail always dreamed of being one of the five Easter Bunnies chosen by wise old Grandfather Bunny to deliver Easter Eggs to the children of the world, but the elegant white city bunnies and long-legged Jack Rabbits laughed at the idea of a country bunny fulfilling that role. Eventually she grew up, putting her dreams aside to raise her twenty-one baby bunnies. Then one day, while attending the ceremony to pick a new Easter Bunny, her wisdom and kindness, in raising her own large brood, led Grandfather Bunny to select her after all. Cottontail made countless deliveries the night before Easter, hopping until she was exhausted. Then, just when she was worn out, she was given a special task: deliver a beautiful egg to a very sick boy who lived on a distant mountaintop. It seemed impossible, but Cottontail's bravery and perseverance won her a very special prize - a pair of magical golden shoes - that made her task much easier...

Originally published in 1939, The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes has become a classic of American children's literature. I myself never happened to read it as a child, but have long been aware of its existence, and have been meaning to get to it for some time. I'm glad that I finally did, as it is a lovely little tale, one as entertaining as it is heartwarming. The story reads like a fairy-tale, one in which the worthy heroine triumphs against all odds, and gets her just deserts, while the beautiful pastel-hued artwork captures the charm of its leporine characters, and the delights of their world. The vintage style here really appealed to me, as did the gentle but colorful palette. I can readily understand why the book has remained a favorite for close to eighty years. Recommended to anyone looking for entertaining and engaging tales featuring Easter Bunnies and the eggs they are said to deliver, or mothers whose skills at parenting are utilized in other fields as well.

I get it. She's kind, wise, clever, swift, and brave. An early model for feminists, especially those that are mothers and want to be more.

But I found it didactic, twee, overly-pretty, and much too long.

And what about this line: And by and by she had a husband and then one day, much to her surprise there were twenty-one Cottontail babies to take care of."

I know girls who were surprised to find themselves pregnant, but surprised to give birth? I hope we give our daughters a bit more sex ed than that nowadays!

So, how did Jenifer turn out, I wonder...." ( )
