The New Baby’s Bunny is a gentle story of a family preparing for a new baby. Nanna has welcomed each child - two brothers and a sister - with a knitted bunny, and their bunnies are introduced at the beginning of the story. All the family members then help Nanna by choosing buttons for the new bunny’s eyes. Dad’s buttons are too big, Mum’s too dark, and the brothers choose soccer ball and train buttons, bringing humour to the story. The sister, however, has chosen perfect buttons and her secret extra ribbon for the bunny gives a sweet ending to this tale of family life to be treasured.
