Favourite picture book bunnies

Do you have a favourite picture book bunny? There are so many lovely bunnies that we could have included on our list of favourite picture book bunnies for Easter.

The Night Before Easter by Natasha Wing and Kathy Couri

Our favourite picture book Easter Bunny is a very dapper bunny who works hard throughout the night to make sure that all the Easter treats are delivered and hidden before the cockerel crows.

Rabbits Don’t Lay Eggs! by Paula Metcalf and Cally Johnson-Isaacs

We find Rupert’s attempt to lay an egg very funny in this amusing story about a rabbit trying to find himself a job so that he can go and live in the farmyard.

I ♡ Bedtime by Clara Vulliamy

Martha’s attempts to get her Bunny Brothers to bed have us laughing out loud. Martha is a particularly cute, white bunny who likes to wear wellingtons. She’s determined to get her brothers into bed so she can spend time alone with her best babysitter, Grace-next-door.

Rabbityness by Jo Empson

Although Rabbit disappears halfway through Rabbityness he leaves his friends with a wonderful, artistic legacy. At first they’re sad that he’s gone but then they are happy and appreciate his unique qualities.

Wanted! Ralfy Rabbit, Book Burglar by Emily MacKenzie

We can totally sympathise with Ralfy Rabbit’s book obsession but stealing isn’t the answer. Rally needs to get help before his obsession gets out of hand!

I am a Bunny by Ole Risom and Richard Scarry

Nicholas was illustrated by Richard Scarry in the ’60’s but he still does a great job of introducing children to the different seasons. The book has also been translated into German and French.

What Small Rabbit Heard by Sheryl Webster and Tim Warnes

Due to windy weather what Small Rabbit hears is very different to what his mother is saying to him when they are out for a walk. My daughter finds the actions resulting from his misunderstanding very amusing!

Where’s the Bus? by Eileen Browne and James Croft

This was one of my daughter’s first favourite picture books. She found it funny that she saw the buses that Rabbit and Mouse missed when they were trying to get to Duck’s house for tea.

Bunny Loves to Read / Bunny Loves to Write by Peter Bently, Emma Foster and Deborah Melmon

We love the way that Buster Bunny enthuses his friends with his love of reading and writing. He’s a great advocate for literacy.

Do you have a favourite picture book bunny? It would be great if you could leave a link to your favourite bunny picture book in the comments.

    Ahh Elsa loves anything with a ‘babbit’ in it! You can’t beat Miffy though when it comes to picture book bunnies!

      Thanks Reshama, bunnies are a popular theme for picture books. We had lots to choose from!

    Hopping (tee hee) over from the Kid Lit Blog Hop #37. My all time favorite is the Richard Scarry illustrated book.

      I am a Bunny is such an old book but it’s still lovely to read and relevant to children today.

    The Gryphon Press tweeted their suggestion – Bella from The Forgotten Rabbit.

    Pat the Bunny still has to be my all time favorite. While not directly related to Easter, my children had so much fun as toddlers turning to that book over and over again!


    1. Catherine avatar

      Most of the books here aren’t related to Easter, we just love books with bunnies 🙂 I’ll look out for Pat the Bunny, I don’t know the story.

    Nice to see ‘Where’s the Bus’ getting a mention on your list. There’s an earlier version of this book which is illustrated by Eileen herself which I personally prefer.


    1. Catherine avatar

      ‘Where’s the Bus’ has always been one of my daughter’s favourite stories and it was the first book that we recommended on Story Snug. How wonderful to have a version illustrated by Eileen 🙂
