What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was babysitting a little girl whose mother wanted her to read every day. But she didn't want to read–not that day. Torn between obedience to her mom and the desire not to pick a book off the shelf and read it, this little girl came up with her own solution. She wrote her own story, drew the pictures, and read it to me!
A little bunny lived in the woods
with Mother and Father Rabbit.
And every day they hopped down the path–
it was a pleasant habit.
With lettuce for their salads and snacks,
and carrots for the next day's pot,
the three continued down the path
to Little Bunny's favorite spot:
There every day he made a choice
and picked another book.
He borrowed it and took it home
to read inside his reading nook.
On Monday morning, what did he find?
A chirping cricket, a dancing bee,
an elephant so big and tall,
and lions–strong and brave and free.
On Tuesday morning, what did he find?
Some firefighters working hard
to get the rabbits out and safe
from both the burning house and yard.
On Wednesday morning, what did he find?
A kitten in the park at night.
Her family came and took her home.
No danger there, and no more fright.
