A Little Golden Book is a Treasure Waiting to Be Opened

Heartwarming, When Bunny Grows Up, made in the year 1955

When Bunny Grows Up, made in the year 1955, this is a sweet and loving Little Golden Book ... This as a amazing timeless masterpiece by Richard Scarry. It is a tale about a bunny who wants to be just like his father when he grows up to be a adult bunny-rabbit. This is a wonderful heartwarming gem to share with your child or grandchildren. With very charming illustrations, and a well written simple text; making this a childhood classic a perfect addition to any family library. This little golden book is a golden bunny classic! The timeless artwork is very sweet eye-candy to a child, and adults as well ... All through the book, bunny's family from parntes to aunts and uncles speculates as to what he will be when he grows up - on adult asks will he be a fireman? anther ask will he be a circus clown? or maybe a lion tamer? Only the baby bunny knows for sure, and his choice is precious and heart-warmer. This is a particularly good one for Fathers and their little boys to read together. As they find out together that bunny's true wish is to be a good daddy when he grows up, just like his dad. It is fun to give each family member a different voice and it is hard not to get all choked up at the very end. I would highly recommend this book for little ones from one year old to adulthood. Beautifully written by Patsy Scarry, and handsomely illustrated by Richard Scarry. This is a true classic Golden Book, made by Western Publishing Company ... A great children book, picture book, with lots of preschool fun.

Yes they were amazingly well made, and beautifully illustrated for the price we paid for them back in the golden age of children books. Wish the future generations could have good books to read like the ones we once had.
