“A little white rabbit hops through the woods and fields and wonders about all the things he sees. When he scurries through the grass, he wonders what it would be like to be green. As he lopes past fir trees, he wonders what it would be like to be tall. When he gazes up at graceful butterflies, he wonders what it would be like to soar in the breeze. But when he returns home to his mama, he doesn't have to wonder what it's like to be loved!”
-- Megan Graves, Hooray for Books!, Alexandria, VA


One bright spring day a little white rabbit sets out from home on an adventure. What does he find? Look! Everything is new.Anything is possible. . . .
