It is a lovely day. Flowers are blooming, and little insects and animals are out and about. One of the little animals is Bunny, who is hopping from place to place in the garden. First we see him hopping between the red flowers. Then he hops over the blue rocks. Next, he explores and hops behind the green bush. Like little children, Bunny likes to chase butterflies, which is what he does next, hop, hop, hopping through the yellow sunflowers.

   In this charming novelty title, die cut spaces on every page allow a little cut out bunny (which is attached to the book by a piece of ribbon) to hop from page to page, and from location to location in his garden home. Children will enjoy seeing where the bunny goes next, and when they get to the end of the story they can start all over again.
