Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes by Du Bose Heyward
Cottontail the country bunny has big dreams of becoming the fifth Easter Bunny, and when she finally proves herself worthy of Old Grandfather's blessings, she is chosen to deliver the most special egg of them all.
With twenty-one baby bunnies to look after, mother bunny Cottontail abandons her dream of becoming an Easter Bunny. But when Grandfather Bunny spies her perfectly behaved brood, he’s so impressed that he makes Cottontail the most important Easter Bunny of all! Originally published in 1939, Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes celebrates the timeless values of equality, hard work, and patient ambition.
