Published 75 years ago by the same author who brought us Goodnight Moon , The Runaway Bunny is a board book that talks about the fierce love that a mother has for her child — despite an expert game of hide-and-seek, in which the little bunny keeps running away from his mother. For you are my little bunny. When Nichi drops a mitten one day during a walk in the woods, he has no idea who — or what — his mitten is going to end up hosting! First, a mole finds it and crawls into it. Then a rabbit, and so on and so forth, until a brown bear is trying to squeeze into this warm refuge. Gently humorous and lovingly illustrated, this retelling of an Ukrainian folktale will show you where to seek comfort on a cold winter day. As its description says: simply press the yellow dot on its cover, follow the instructions within, and wait for the magic to unfold!

Books teach, entertain, console, help us better understand others, and help us feel understood. You can read almost anywhere, at almost any time. Books are portable, and affordable. Eight dollars will buy you a movie ticket, good for two hours of fun, which is great, but it will also buy you a book, good for many hours of life-enriching stories. The heroes in books inspire us, and as children, we learn many lessons from these heroes. The value of hard work, the significance of compassion or the love of another. Books help us step into the life of a person different than us, which helps develop empathy.
