#69 - Rabbit Hill by Robert Lawson

1945 Medal Winner

"'New Folks coming, Mother - Father, new Folks coming into the Big House!' shouted Little Georgie the Rabbit. All the animals of the Hill were very excited about the news and wondered how things would change. Would the new Folks bring dogs, traps, and guns? Or would they be planting Folks who would care for the land and grow rich crops? It had been years since there had been a garden at the House."

Aww, this was such a cute book! Any animal loving kid would love this one! An unexpected sad twist almost made me cry, but with another twist, everything was okay, and even better than expected! Very heartwarming story. I will be passing this one on to my animal-story-loving Emily!
