A little bunny discovers a blue egg, and begins to imagine all the wonderful things that might be inside. First published in 1947, this classic by the author of Goodnight Moon is a tribute to curiosity, as the bunny envisions a boy, a mouse, even an elephant inside the beautiful speckled egg. For his following book with Margaret Wise Brown, The Little Island, Leonard Weisgard won the Caldecott Medal, and here it is already clear that this is a special collaboration of like-minded artists. Weisgard's rabbit is adorable, and his meticulous paintings of the flowers and plants lend believability to this tale for readers and listeners up to 7.
