Welcome back, LBX’plorers! For today’s virtual LBX’plorers Kids Club, you’ll be “springing” into action. But first, our host Stephanie Holdridge, will read It’s Not Easy Being a Bunny. Written by Marilyn Sadler and illustrated by Roger Bollen, this “hare-raising” tale tells the touching story of P. J. Funnybunny.
P.J feels as though he doesn’t fit in with his family- He doesn’t enjoy eating carrots or having floppy ears like they do. After deciding to leave home, P.J. tries living with other animals- from birds to bears and pigs to possums. As a result of this action-packed journey, P.J. learns the true meaning of family, home, and self-acceptance.
After the story, stay tuned in to make this week’s craft– an adorable handprint bunny. Check out the materials you’ll need for this craft below!
– Construction paper in two colors (think spring-themed)
– Colored pom poms or cotton balls
– Pipe cleaners or twine
– Tacky glue
– Glue stick
– Black Sharpie marker
