Publisher Description:

Newbery Honor author Cynthia Lord likes fostering rabbits--or, as she fondly calls it, "borrowing bunnies." This is the heartwarming true story of the author's own journey with two very special rabbits.

In the spring of 2016, Peggotty and Benjamin were saved by Maine's Cottontail Cottage Rabbit Rescue after their previous owners had neglected them. But before the two Netherland Dwarf rabbits could be adopted, Cynthia had to help them learn to trust people and feel safe inside a home. The bunnies slowly settled in, enjoying their clean pens, nibbling new foods, and playing with fun toys, while Cindy's husband, John Bald, photographed Benjamin and Peggotty's every step toward adoption. At that time, hundreds of viewers were drawn to Cindy's Facebook page to watch their progress. Now, she has adapted the rabbits' true story into a picture book that explores love, responsibility, empathy, and letting go--along with fostering's many surprises, both big and small.

Young readers will delight in watching these bunnies thrive while also learning a few fun animal facts. With Cindy's pitch-perfect blend of warmth and real-life experience, Borrowing Bunnies is a new classic in narrative nonfiction.
