Jennifer's Rabbit

Tom Paxton
illustrated by Elizabeth Miles 2001

Madeleine first brought this home from her elementary school library and I fell in love.  I had never heard the song before but I couldn't help but read it with a sing-song voice.   The illustrations are pretty wonderful too.  This has become a popular bedtime read in our house.  I'd like to think the kids fall asleep with dreams of sailing on a starlight sea and dancing on the decks of a red-sailed brig.

Jennifer slept in her little bed
With dreams of her rabbit in her little head.
Jennifer's rabbit, brown and white,
Left the house and ran away one night
