Illustrated by Melissa Iwai


Hope Is a Hop

About the Book

Just in time for Easter, a moving exploration of hope, from its resilient roots to its sprouting—and surprising!—possibilities.

When Eva's hopes for a cheerful flower garden are dashed by a rascally—and hungry! —rabbit, she sinks into despair. But it's from this new vantage point that she discovers something surprising and wonderful about her four-legged-nemesis that reminds Eva of her own growing family and inspires her to try again.

Told in sweet, lyrical verse, and accompanied by  the tenderest illustrations, Hope is a Hop shares a powerful message and the heart-tugging illustrations and bunny rabbit motif make it a natural pick for Easter gifting.
