Children's Literature
This is the Spanish translation of the classic, well loved, book, The Runaway Bunny. Every time the little bunny tells his mother he is going to run away, she says she will always find him. He says he will turn into a trout and swim away from her in a stream. She tells him that if he turns into a trout and swims away, she will become a fisherman and catch him. And so it goes until finally the little bunny says he will stay where he is, at home with his mother. Clement Hurd's illustrations help transport children into the imagination of the little bunny. The sketches on the pages with the dialogue between the little bunny and his mother as well as the beautiful, bold illustrations in between the text, tell the story so well without words. The one that most symbolizes the mother's love shows the little bunny changed into a bird flying toward a tree, which is shaped like its mother with her arms stretched out to greet and protect him. The repetitious phrases help early readers feel confident as they read on their own. 2006 (orig.1995), HarperCollins Publishers, Ages 3 to 6.
