Favorite Picture Book

This is my kids' favorite picture book.  It is very, very old (picture book life spans can be measured in months in a house with children).  Printed in 1961, it even has lovely duct tape holding it together.  I'm not sure where we got it, but we love The Littlest Rabbit.

It chronicles the story of a little bunny who wants to be bigger.

Can you blame him for not wanting to be small?  It's no fun to be picked on.

But in the end, everything is ok when you get bigger and take revenge on your tormentors.  This part makes my teens laugh and laugh - because it would so not be included in any books written today.

We may have to censor this totally not politically correct book.
