My Friend Rabbit by Eric Rohmann

Our pick for Easter baskets this year is a simple tale of an adventuresome rabbit and his less-adventurous buddy, named Mouse. “My friend Rabbit means well. But whatever he does, wherever he goes, trouble follows.” Bold illustrations tell most of the story — including one of rabbit’s disastrous ideas that involves piling an elephant, rhino, duck, deer, bear, hippo, alligator and squirrel on top of each other. It sparks discussions about how to be a good friend — and always gets laughs from our kids, who love to retell the story on their own.
