The Runaway Bunny is the perfect book to showcase the week leading up to Mother’s Day. Made in the same era and by the same brilliant team that came up with Goodnight Moon, it’s the story of a little bunny with an independent streak whose ready to test the bounds of his mother’s love.

If you run away, said his mother, I will run after you. For you are my little bunny.

The little bunny is comfortable imagining pretty much any future, knowing his Mother will be there to love and support him. A sweet and gentle story and very comforting to the toddler set.

I know there’s a 90% chance you already have it in your collection, but if not, it’s worth adding.

P.S. — The best designed board books.
