Bunny Wanders, by Jason McCurdy, is a fun book that follows a rabbit who strikes out from the forest to visit his cousin in the desert. Featuring stunning photography of this “real life” bunny shot mostly in Mojave National Preserve and Joshua Tree National Park, this book is sure to entertain and amaze both kids and grown-ups.
Full disclosure: I went to college with Jason which is how I found out about this project. I have to say I’ve never seen a book quite like this. With two young kids of my own, I can totally appreciate the message plus I’m down for any book that isn’t just illustrated with cartoon animals. Not only is Jason the photographer, he’s also the “Bunny” and, from what I understand, he even made the costume himself!
Even if you don’t have kids, this book is a great gift that will inspire kids of all ages to get out and explore the great outdoors. I’m looking forward to seeing what type of environments Bunny explores next!
