This puppet story is based on the book “The Surprise” by George Shannon. The book is long out of print but has been popular with the librarians in the library system I work in. We have a couple of different versions floating around. This one involves little bunny and a birthday surprise for his mother. Whenever another version makes its way in my direction I will add it here.
Stacking boxes that are used as baby toys were wrapped in wrapping paper are revealed each time the mother bunny opens the box. If you have two matching rabbits kids will be amazed if you start telling the story with one rabbit (but it away before the mother gets her present) and then reveal the second matching rabbit in the last box. It is like magic.
