Synopsis: At the end of winter, a girl named Spring awakes from her slumber in the snow.
She travels through the forest and finds a little bird that has fallen from a tree.
The bird is so cold and weak that Spring can hardly hear its heartbeat, so she turns it into a rabbit with thick, soft fur so it will be warm.
To show their gratitude, birds gather eggs which Rabbit collects in a beautiful basket. Spring tells Rabbit to give them to the children so that they will know Spring is here.
This beautiful tale shows young children how the Easter Bunny came to be.

Thank you so much to Quarto/Frances Lincoln children’s and Netgalley for the ebook to read and review.
Review: Aww this was so sweet, as spring awakens getting ready to thaw the winter she heals a bird turning it to a bunny to be warm and safe. The bunny then wants to thank her for her help and with his bird friends finds a way.
This really was such a cute picture book, it’s a great way to teach a child about the spring weather and shares a different story of Easter which I think young kids would really enjoy. The illustrations were very bright and colourful.
It was a really sweet read and it was filled with joy, happiness and brightness which is always such a great thing to find in a children’s picture book.
