All right so this story is about a certain kind of animal, and let me see if you can guess what that animal is. So it kind of looks like this, and it goes, hop, hop, hop, hop, hop, hop, hop, hop, hop, do you know what this is? All right if you guessed a bunny, or a rabbit, you are correct! So this is a book called, "The Bunny Hop." See and look at all of these little cute bunnies surrounding our good friend Elmo right there. And this book, "The Bunny Hop," is written by Sarah Albee and it's illustrated by Maggie Swanson, all right. I'm excited to know what happens, do you wanna know what happens? Let's read the book. Go ahead, sit back and relax, and here we go. "The Bunny Hop." A funny thing happened on Sesame Street one Easter, not long ago. Bees were buzzing and birds were singing. The flowers were starting to grow. Elmo woke up and yawned and said, "It's a beautiful, sunny day." Then he went to put on his slippers and one of them hopped away! As Ernie was reading the paper, something furry hopped over the funnies. When Bert went to start the spring cleaning, the closet was chock-full of bunnies. Grover was playing baseball. A rabbit was under his cap. Harry was coloring Easter eggs. A bunny leaped into his lap. While Zoe was planting her garden, she found bunnies filling her shed. See them all? As Cookie was looking for jelly beans, he found bunny rabbits instead, see. Where had these bunnies come from? Nobody really knew. Oscar found three in his trash can! What was a grouch to do? Hoots was playing his saxophone when out of it popped a bunny. As Prairie Dawn ate her cereal, a rabbit knocked over the honey. "What's going on?" people shouted, "It's becoming a funny habit. "Every time we turn around, we find a bunny rabbit!" Big Bird rounded the corner, here's what they heard him say, "Has anyone seen my bunnies? "They seem to have run away." He sat on the stoop and said sadly, "They were all in this basket I made. "They must have jumped out of this hole, "who will hop in the Easter parade?" Then he noticed his friends holding bunnies, so he handed each one a hat. "Let's all go and march together!" he said. And everyone did just that. Look at all of them, look at all of our friends in their hats with the bunnies. The end. Did you like that? Hey I have a question, do you think that when they marched in the parade they actually hopped like bunnies? What do you think, wouldn't that have been fun? I'll tell you what, why don't we try and hop like bunnies right now. Okay, all right here, let me get my chair out of the way, and then put your hands up right. And then hop, hop, hop, hop, hop like a bunny. Hop, hop, hop, I really had fun today I hope you did too. I'm gonna see you later, that's what I'm gonna do. So I'm gonna hop bye. - [Narrator] Caring for each other. Visit sesamestreet.org/caring for videos, activities, and tips for the whole family.
