Lloyd-Jones (Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing) uses the cycle of the seasons to offer a reassuring story about change. A bunny is born in spring and hops through summer until the days grow short, animals scatter, and trees lose their leaves, which frightens the young rabbit (“And the white frost bit the earth./ And turned it to stone”). After sleeping through winter (the bunny is seen snoozing in his burrow), the natural world awakens: “Up through cracks in the ground—came bright green shoots!” The book ends with a paraphrased quote from Martin Luther about God’s promise of new life. McPhail’s Peter Rabbit–esque illustrations make the story; his soft lines fill in details of fur and feathers, and his muted palette intimates the hush of bedtime. Lloyd-Jones’s narrative rhythm is odd; some lines rhyme, while others do not, which might throw off the pacing of some readalouds. Smart older readers might notice that the story actually contains two spring seasons, which could make for good conversation about the repeated cycle of the seasons. Ages 4–8.
