Kate Says: "Reading Is Fun!"

Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!

The Runaway Bunny

The Runaway Bunny - Margaret Wise Brown, Clement Hurd This was another childhood favorite book of mine that I need to re-read. Plus, I found this great review of the book on an online blog that I really liked, so I'm copying here with italics - as it's not my words, but I liked them none the less.

Natural disasters, partisan rancor, unspeakable acts of violence around the world — what's not to worry about? It may sound silly, but this children's classic will offer you a sliver of comfort in this scary world. The bunny's mother, who will "walk across the air" to find her son at the circus, is constantly wise and reassuring. Never mind if you and your own mom aren't getting along; this mother bunny can be whoever you need her to be: a loving friend, an inspiring mentor, maybe even a better, stronger version of yourself.
