Storytime Theme: Bunnies

I know, I know. Easter is a month away.  So, why would I have a bunny storytime this early?  Because I am ready for SPRING!  And I think of three things when I think of spring—flowers, frogs and BUNNIES.  (I’m having frog storytime in a couple of weeks!)

Books:

  • See How They Grow: Bunny by Angela Royston (Non-fiction book gave us open discussion on what a bunny looks like when they are born, as well as making a bunny nest)
  • The Bunnies Are Not In Their Beds by Marisabina Russo (Such a cute story about parents getting frustrated and kids trying to trick parents!)
  • Bunny, My Honey by Anita Jeram (Bunny gets lost, but Momma is not far behind.)
  • Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown (This classic book has a familiar theme for preschoolers who inevitably go through a running away phase.)
  • Good Job, Oliver! by Laurel Molk (Oliver is growing a garden! And he has to keep things other than rabbits out of it!)
  • Honey Bunny Funnybunny by Marilyn Sadler (Sibling bunnies always argue, but miss it when they are not together.)

Peeking Rabbits: This craft is inspired by a link via Pinterest for craftymorning.com.  I have put templates below…I just had the kids recreate the picture!  And for the record, kids adore google eyes!
