When Auntie Bunny comes to visit her bunny kin for Christmas, the time they spend together is filled with love and delight. From baking and painting to playing and decorating, there are innumerable memorable moments to share. As the day goes by, the Christmas spirit fills everyone, and the affection of one special Auntie resonates within the heart of her loved one. Favorite aunties and their young nieces and nephews will love reading this heartwarming book together, especially as they reminisce about the many joys they have shared. The book is designed to be given as a gift, with a page at the beginning for a dedication and space at the end for a special note and photograph to be added. These inclusions transform this book into a treasured family keepsake, especially as young children get older. This delightful story incorporates short, rhyming couplets with illustrations of cheerful and cozy woodland creatures.
