BFIAR- The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown

This week we are "rowing" The Runaway Bunny. It is a charming story of a little bunny who tests his mother's love for him. It reminds me of when Pitty-pat first came to live with me. She had received alot of attention for running away in the past. In fact she even bragged about being brought back to a laundromat by the police! (This is at age 5 years old) So she tried it here just once. I ran after her and marched her home. She did not like the consequences of not being allowed to play outside for a whole week while little brother did get to go outside. It wasn't so much fun anymore.
We discussed how much the momma bunny loved her little bunny and didn't want to have him run away but keep him safe at home. I enjoy the tie-in to how God's love is everywhere we are too.

We made a lapbook from the ideas at homeschool share.We made just one book to share this time since I still have alot of the pieces of the last two allover the table. It is mostly for little-man since this book is more geared toward his age anyway.
We had carrot sticks for a snack and talked about what bunnies eat---Dandelions,grass,carrots.
