Several years ago my mother-in-law gifted her grandchildren this beautiful, vintage book and it's been top on my list of children's books ever since (hence, its well-loved/worn appearance). Yes, it's technically an Easter story, but I love reading The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes to the kids whether it's Easter or not--it's just that wonderful from both a literary and artistic standpoint. It's hard to believe the book was written decades ago, as some of the underlying themes are quite modern. Any woman who admires motherhood will appreciate this book immensely.
You can find it online at Amazon or at your local bookstore. If you do purchase one online, keep in mind there are just 20 copies left so snatch yours up quickly! Happy Easter...4 days early :)
