I still have my original copy of Richard Scarry’s I Am a Bunny with my name and birth date written inside. My mom gave it to me when I was a baby, and it is one of the books I remember so vividly from my childhood. It is a sweet little story about a little bunny named Nicholas in all the different seasons, and the illustrations are just darling. In fact, I recently spotted this photo on Flickr and I think it’s such a brilliant idea to frame the pages of the book. So cute for your baby’s room. You can buy the book from our bookshop (UK and US).
That is so funny – I saw this book at my friend Caroline’s on Saturday and immediately made a note of it to order from Amazon.
This is a household favorite. A must have for every child’s library.
One of my favourite childhood books was also by Richard Scary; The Best Word Book Ever. It didn’t survive my first baby so I had to throw it away, but we got a new copy and we all love it! Such a cute idea to frame the pictures!
Wow! This just transported me back to my childhood!
