One summer day a bunny hops out of the woods and into a garden. “What a wonderful garden someone has made just for me,” she thinks. All summer she feasts there. In the fall, she hides from the mean old cat behind big orange pumpkins. Then, just before the snows of winter, another bunny hops into her garden. Now during the cold winter, she has a friend. And when the first flowers of spring pop up in the garden, the two bunnies are there–and so are their three little baby bunnies!
This gentle story with vibrant watercolor paintings captures the essence of the four seasons.

Janet Schulman and Meilo So collaborated on a companion to A Bunny for All Seasons, entitled Countdown to Spring!, which The New York Times praised as “a pretty little book to read and discuss with toddlers.”From Publishers Weekly :
With simple prose and spare watercolors, this small-size picture book (in the same format of Schulman and So's Countdown to Spring!) describes the seasonal life cycle of "a little brown bunny rabbit [who hops] out of the woods and into a garden." Schulman's language is economical and straightforward as she describes the delight the brown bunny takes in the garden's summer strawberries and marvels at the flowers. By winter, the bunny has "found a friend" to snuggle with in the snow, and by spring, they bring three new baby bunnies to the garden. A slinking elderly cat provides a non-scary chase now and then, but in Schulman's gentle world there are no marauding owls, no Mr. McGregor. The emphasis is on peace and tranquility, and the sweet bunny even takes time to smell the flowers. So's enchanting illustrations seem a bit cramped on these petite pages, but the paintings accentuate the glories to be found in each season. Bright-red poppies dot a sea of wildflowers, yellow maple leaves swirl around orange pumpkins, and the dancing rabbits create circular patterns in the white snow. "What a wonderful garden someone has made just for me," thinks the brown bunny, and readers who are just developing an appreciation for nature's beauty will agree. Ages 2-6.
