About this deal

Beautifully and simply written by Ole Risom, and perfectly illustrated by Richard Scarry, this was one of the few children's books I never tired of reading aloud. This book is perfect for babies and toddlers who are actively discovering the natural world around them. One of Golden’s most beloved titles, this beautifully illustrated, gentle story is now availableas an eBook. Such a contrast to that fraud Eric Carle, whose anti-capitalist screed "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" drips with socialistic, vegetarian dogma in every sentence.

I very clearly remember the day that I wanted my mother to read it to me, but she was doing something else at the time, so I sat in the doorway of my closet and opened it up, wanting to look at the pictures again, at least. My 16m olds want to hear it over and over and love when I point out things such as the snow, frogs, leaves etc.The idea of a little toadstool being an umbrella for littler creatures was, and still is, the cutest thing I can fathom. Now for the intended age group, for very young children, Ole Risom's 1963 I Am a Bunny might well and totally hit the proverbial sweet spot. but then it isn't really as fun, because how much of a surprise is it for me to read the words wrong when she just told me to. Generations of children all over the world have grown up spending hours poring over his books filled with all the colorful details of their daily lives.

In one scene, he is threatened by rainfall, and just when you think it is going to be the end for him he decides to keep dry under a toadstool. But after showing his portfolio to one of the original editors at Golden Books, he found the perfect home for his work. In the spring, Nicholas picks flowers and chases butterflies, and in the summer, watches the frogs in the pond. The bunny is adorable, and the sweeping vista illustrations add so much to the experience of the book. His books have sold over 100 million copies around the world and are currently published in more than twenty languages.While my baby's not quite at the talking stage yet, I think the pictures are really helpful in pointing out what the story is about - flowers, butterflies, birds, frogs, leaves, rain, and snow are all beautifully illustrated in vibrant colors that capture the baby's attention and (hopefully) are helping her learn too. The assignments first given to Scarry tended to be Little Golden Books that featured popular characters of the day, such as Winky Dink, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and Smokey the Bear.
