for In a Jar
by Deborah Marcero
Llewellyn is a little white bunny who likes to collect things in small jars. He collects leaves, feathers, stones, and other simple artifacts of nature. When he meets another collector named Evelyn, he soon expands his collection to include more expansive things like sunsets, rainbows, and the wonders of winter, which he shares with her. This can be read as a whimsical story about collectors and nature appreciation, or as a metaphor for love. The lovely cadence of the writing is well-matched by the distinctive, creative illustrations that will stretch young imaginations. How, for instance, would you bottle wonder? Young readers can also pore over all the jars and their contents —all familiar things, for the most part, that one just doesn’t see in jars. (Ages 4-7)

Here's a marvelous picture book, charmingly written and beautifully illustrated, about the power of memory and the magic of friendship.
Llewellyn, a little rabbit, is a collector. He gathers things in jars--ordinary things like buttercups, feathers, and heart-shaped stones. Then he meets another rabbit, Evelyn, and together they begin to collect extraordinary things--like rainbows, the sound of the ocean, and the wind just before snow falls. And, best of all, when they hold the jars and peer inside, they remember all the wonderful things they've seen and done. But one day, Evelyn has sad news: Her family is moving away. How can the two friends continue their magical collection--and their special friendship--from afar?
