The Country Bunny and the Little Golden Shoes by Du Bose Heyward

Written in 1939 for his daughter, this is a very feminist tale.

In a world where there are 5 Easter Bunnies a little girl rabbit says “Some day I shall grow up to be an Easter Bunny – you wait and see!” But soon she has 21 babies. She teaches them life skills and teamwork, so when it’s time to pick a new Easter Bunny she goes out for the job. She proves that her children are self sufficient and will be fine for one night without her.

This is a story every girl should have. It has an important message that you can do it all…… just not all at the same time.
