When the Wise Man interviewed animals to be carriers of the good news at Easter, the rabbit was not interested. Many other animals appeared more worthy. Why was the rabbit chosen?
Award winning author Bob Bohlken imparts his love of words and listening in this Easter story, How the Rabbit Became the Easter Bunny. Here in the land of Ooh and Ahhs, the Wise Man searches for the best way to celebrate Christ’s resurrection and the rebirth of spring. He interviews animals to find the ideal one to deliver hope and love at Easter.

What a nice after-Christmas surprise when I opened my email this morning and read what one reviewer said about my book for children, The Littlest Kitten, the story of the Holy Night and the cat family.
(REVIEW) This is a book that children will want to read again and again. I liked this book so much that I will be checking out more books by this author. The cat family was so adorable. Mom cat loved her family. Just like Mary and Joseph loved their new son, Jesus.

It’s a great year for apples in most sections of the apple growing country. There are bushels and bushels of apples to be picked. Kids will soon be going out to orchards on field trips. (One of my most favorite times of the year!) Families will be enjoying the apple experience at orchards.
