Meet Sarah, she’s the new Owlkids intern! Sarah would like to share a cute bunny video she found. Take it away, Sarah!
Check out this adorable bunny eating a raspberry! Raspberries are healthy, delicious, and this bunny’s favourite snack!
Bunnies are very fluffy and soft. They are herbivores, which means they love eating a lot of veggies and fruits, like raspberries. Bunnies live in large groups called colonies.
Thanks, silly bunny, for being our friend and for showing us the best way to eat raspberries!
Bye for now,
I just read this great book from Owlkids. It’s called Share and it’s by Sally Anne Garland. Bunny finds it very hard to share her room and her toys with her visiting little cousin. Will she be happy when she leaves or do you think she might miss him just a bit? Read the book to find out!

Hi Readers and Parents,
Heading to the theatre with your family? HOP just might be one to watch!
This animated/live-action movie follows two characters: Young E.B., a rabbit destined to be the next Easter Bunny, and a human slacker named Fred. E.B. is unsure about taking the high-pressure Easter Bunny job. He thinks me might even like to be a drummer instead of the Easter Bunny. And Fred is unsure about taking any job, much to the disappointment of his family. When the two characters meet, hilarity ensues. After a few comedic missteps, Fred and E.B. form a strong friendship and learn from each other. But more importantly, each character learns just what they are capable of when they set out to pursue their dreams.
Check out the HOP trailer:
HOP features some of the cutest animated bunnies you will ever see! And it enforces a great message about pursuing your dreams/accepting people for who they truly are. The comedic pacing is good, providing enough slapstick, singing and dancing to keep both children and parents entertained. The film also provides opportunities to talk about its messages (good and bad), as well as to discuss how Easter is portrayed in the film vs. how you may or may not celebrate it in your own house.
Stuff to watch out for:
HOP is rated PG for some crude humour and comedic violence. Some of the language, concepts and jokes are aimed mainly at adult viewers, and will likely go over most young viewer’s heads. However, be aware that some of the evil characters spout insults like “jerk” and “idiot” and there are a couple of scary scenes in which E.B. is in danger. And of course, there are lots of references to candy.
Enjoy the show!
