“BUNNY’S FIRST SPRING” AVAILABLE TODAY

retailers nationwide and online.
Los Angeles, Calif. (January 15, 2014) – Winter can seem dark, gray and bleak, but Spring is a symbol of God’s promises of life renewed. Bestselling author Sally Lloyd-Jones, with help from illustrator David McPhail, celebrates Spring as a season of rebirth in the delightful picture book Bunny’s First Spring, available now.
When a bunny is born in spring, he sees the world as green and new and full of hope. But as the seasons change, the bunny worries that the earth may be dying. But, nature speaks to the bunny, assuring him of something more.
Award-winning artist David McPhail’s whimsical illustrations reflect the beauty of the world around us as Lloyd-Jones’ inspirational text prompts readers to celebrate the changing seasons and the miracle of nature’s rebirth.
Lloyd-Jones concludes Bunny’s First Spring with words of inspiration: “God has written the promise of new life not just in books alone—but in every leaf in Springtime” (from Martin Luther).
Bunny’s First Spring is available now in hardcover for $15.99 at retailers nationwide and online.
