This is one of those great books that trancends time. As a child I loved this book and now my own two children, ages three years and eighteen months,love this story.This is a story that,regardless of the age of your child,will show them that no matter where they go or what they do,your love for them is endless.I can remember once,as a teenager going through a particularly rebellious stage,my mother brought out my dogeared copy of Runaway Bunny,sat me down and actually read it to me. Sounds corny,I know,but the message was there. No matter what I did or said,I was loved.Buy this book now and start reinforcing that message from infancy through adulthood. This book IS that good.

A Tender Story, Beautifully Told

I will always be there for you. That sentiment, that commitment, is at the heart of this book. My favorite book by this renowned author, its clever, reassuring story and captivating pictures will soothe your infant or toddler. And when and your little one is asleep, read it again, to yourself. Don't be surprised if its simple beauty mists your eyes a little. A book that will be treasured for years to come.

A heartwarming, beautifully written book, a MUST-HAVE !!!

I first heard a few lines from this book on a T.V. show, and I was in tears! I ran straight to my computer and ordered it. This book is a must have for every child (and parent!). I have never read a book expressing the love of a mother for her child so beautifully. The mother bunny becomes whatever it takes for her to "find" her little bunny as he dreams of different things to be to run away from her. The mother bunny doesn't condemn him, but conforms to his thoughts and dreams and "chases" after him as he tells her what he will become and how he'll run away. I loved the way the mother spoke so lovingly to her little bunny, letting him know that no matter where he went, she'd find him. My son loves the brilliantly colorful images on every other page. It is a nice contrast to the black and white writing in between. This has become a favorite in my home and I intend to give this book as a gift to any and every mother (or mother-to-be) that I know!

It is a heart warming tale that is wonderful for any age.

I think that it is wonderful to have this book in spanish. I loved the pictures and the tale was one that expressed the love of a mother for a child. Another good book, also by Margaret Wise Brown, is Goodnight Moon (Buenas Noches, Luna). Both books feature the wonderful charaters of rabbits in personified situations.
