Rabbityness by Jo Empson

Jennifer Tice (wonderful blogger!) at Rowdy in First Grade shared a detailed blog post about this book last year.  (Read about it here.)  I knew my group of artistic children would appreciate this enchanting book, especially the amazing art, so we gave Jennifer’s art project a try. 

For those who decide to look into this inspiring book, I want to mention this book is not just about rabbits and spring; it’s a bittersweet picture book with a complex message.  It celebrates differences and individuality (unrabbity things, such as painting and music) and then moves to a more difficult, mature theme (loss, separation), but in a very delicate manner.
