An Old Fave: The Runaway Bunny

I realized just a few days ago that I had never read The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown. What? I know…I was completely baffled by my lack of knowledge in this all time must reads in children’s literature.
It wasn’t until a few month ago I was going through my music library – everyone has music library and everyone loves some type of music – and I came across JJ Heller’s Boat Song. Wanting to know more about this song I researched a bit and found a YouTube video of her and her husband sharing how the song was inspired by a book they had “never before read” to their daughter – The Runaway Bunny. I had thought that I had heard (of) this story before but I never read it. So i went into work a few days ago and discovered that we had this book and I read it to my little group of tots :-). I was struck wit*misty eyes* because of all the times that they run away and come back to the safety of my care. It was sweet and they loved it.
