Meet the Author

OLE RISOM was one of the most influential publishers of mass-market books for children. He was vice president and art director of Golden Books at Western Publishing from 1952-1972, and then vice president and associate publisher of the juvenile division of Random House from 1972 to 1990. He worked closely with RICHARD SCARRY over the years at both houses.

Generations of children around the world have grown up spending hours poring over books by the late RICHARD SCARRY filled with all the colorful details of their daily lives. No other illustrator has shown such a lively interest in the words and concepts of early childhood. Scarry began his career at Golden Books in the 1940s, and he remains one of the world's best-loved children's book creators EVER! He was posthumously awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Society of Illustrators in 2012.

    One of the Sweetest Books I've Ever Read

    I visited my local B & N bookstore one day just before Easter and saw this book on the shelf. The endearing cover illustration was enough for me to pick it up and peruse its contents. After reading the second page of this story, I closed the book. This simple tale and it's beautiful illustrations won me over instantly and I bought it.

    It is rare to find a children's book that is this good! My two toddlers and I read this story every night and it never gets old.

    A perfect book for the little ones ones!

    This book is perfect for when you're trying to introduce your baby to the idea of the joy of reading. This book does not have a lot of words, yet the pictures are detailed enough that my five year-old will keep coming back to it. I recommend this book for the 6 months-2 year age, however. This book is an introduction to the seasons with detailed pictures of flora and fauna that can be found. Great for discussions!

    This book has been a family favorite since my brother and I were babies! It's so great to be able to share it with my children!

    The beauty of this book rests in its illustrations of the most basic and simple pleasures in life. Looking up at the sky, dreaming, and enjoying nature are things that young and old alike can relate to. It brings parents back to a simpler time in their lives and let's children discover the beauty that nature holds for those who are open to the wonder of it. I love reading this book to my daughter...Though I am a single father right now, I know that this will be a book I can relate with to any other parent or person who likes nature. I feel fortunate to have discovered such a beautiful, simple work to share with my daughter, helping her to remember that wonder and joy are found in all living things.

    Bought this book when my youngest was a toddler. She loved it so much we read it over and over and over to the point that my other children had it memorized. And it's been a treasure to give each of them one for their own children. My grandchildren love it as well.

    14 Month old loves this book

    I bought this for my little girl when she was a baby but I think it was too complex for her back then. Now that she is 14 mo old, she LOVES this book. We look for the bunny on each page and she points to all the animals. She also likes pointing to the snow, rain, trees, and flowers. I can vary the story each time too. Never gets boring. A great book with wonderful illustrations. Would be a perfect gift for a 1-2 yr old.

    This was my daughter's favorite baby book in 1972; it is now her daughter's favorite. We estimate that we have given nearly a hundred copies over the years. Enough said?

    The story is sweet; the drawings beautiful, My favorite book for babies and toddlers!

    Timeless

    My daughter is 35 and I still know all the words to this book. I buy it for every baby shower I go to. I bought it for my grandson and as we were reading it one night, he kissed Nicholas good nite in his hollow tree just like his mom used to do without me even telling him. A real timeless book for toddlers.

    We love Nicholas!

    My three year old adores Nicholas and can 'read' me the entire book. She loves all the pictures and we can count the animals, name the flowers, etc. What a great book!

    Beautifully Illustrated

    This book is a feast for the eyes and the language is perfect for the preschooler. The rabbit tells what he likes best of the seasons and the seasons come alive in the illustrations. Among our favorite books!

    I have been searching for this book!

    I had this book as a child and remember the pictures vividly! I have been looking for this book for years without success because I didn't remember the title or author. Thank goodness B&N has a feature to locate children's books by animal (I have searched here before but never saw this feature before)!! This was definately one of my favorites as a small child and I can't wait to get it and read it to my kids.

    A Wonderful Children's Tale

    I grew up with 'I am a Bunny.' I had the story memorized as a young child and enjoyed the beautiful pictures. It is sad that there are some 'critics' who pick apart a book that so reflects the innocence of childhood. So what if the bunny wears one outfit? I graduated summa cum laude from college and am now an attorney for children; I never felt scholastically challenged from the books my parents chose for me as a child, nor did I have a compelling need to find fault with a story that is meant for simpler times. Please, let children be children and allow them to enjoy the beloved tale. I happened across the book the other day and still enjoy the story.
