The Runaway Bunny, by Margaret Wise Brown, has been read to children by parents since its publication in 1942. Now a classic, it is more beloved than ever. It is about a little bunny who wants to run away from home. After each new idea he has as to how he will run away, his mother quickly comes up with the way she's going to find him and bring him home.
This book was a little advanced when we first introduced it to my daughter at less than a year, mostly because there are a lot more words on each page than on other board books geared toward babies and toddlers. Around 15 months, she reached a point where she would sit and listen to the words on the whole page before wanting to turn the page.
We own the board book version of the Runaway Bunny, because our children are still very young. I like the durability of the thicker pages.
The pictures (illustrated by Clement Hurd) are beautiful, colorful and creative and your child will enjoy looking at them as they listen to the story.
