Rabbit front 9780930643362

Long ago in the land of Oohs and Ahhs, the people didn’t have a way to celebrate and remember Christ’s resurrection into Heaven or to greet each new spring — the season of rebirth. Grand Wiseman was asked to find a type of celebration or festival appropriate for these events. He asked the animals for help and advice and found them all too busy to get involved. Because of each animal’s unique gifts, the Grand Wiseman was able to find the ideal way to spread the love and hope of Easter.

This Children’s Christian fiction book, illustrated by Ann Hogue, is available in English and Spanish.

“Delightful story for children ages 3 to 10 about the celebration of Easter, the history of the Easter bunny and the custom of colored Easter eggs representing birth and life. “How the Rabbit Became the Easter Bunny,” makes a great fun, read-aloud, Christian story.”

—Ann Lange, author “In Gooseland”

“The story emphasizes the correlation between Christ’s resurrection and the yearly springing anew of the Lord’s creation with an ordinary rabbit and chicken eggs. The illustrations are soft and beautiful and the choice of parchment-looking paper gives it a feeling of an old, old story. I will be passing this book on to my niece to share with her five young sons. I feel this book will fit well into her home school Christian curriculum.”

—Jill Straight
