Wow… I am sitting here listening to Joe Frank on the radio, reading the story “The Runaway Bunny”. Wow, he just read the whole story. He had a problem with the same part that I did. There is a part that goes, “If you become a sailboat, I will become the wind and blow you to where I want you to go. If you become the wind and BLOW me, said the bunny, I will…. etc.” Well, it’s the part that says, “I will become the wind and blow you.”
HA… I was thinking the same thing as Joe Frank… Isn’t this supposed to be a bedtime story for little kids? I am sure that it’s pretty innocent, but still… I think about it every time I say it. Joe sort of changed it a little bit to make it nicer. HE says, “If you become a sailboat, I will become the wind and blow you all the way home. If you become the wind and BLOW me all the way home, said the bunny, I will…. etc.”
See, nicely put. In the end, mothers get what they want!
Have a carrot, said the mother bunny.
and so he did.
