You may have seen the Easter messages saying chocolate bunnies are Easter gifts, real bunnies are long-term commitments. Real bunnies, like any other pet, come with major responsibilities that last for years. No matter what type or breed of animal, they all deserve attention and care. They also tend to give more than they get. That’s what Flopsy, a little bunny with a big personality, did for his adopted mom, Gretta Parker.
Gretta has built a moving, comical, and educational platform to honor Flopsy’s life; has worked to change laws to protect rabbits; and has taught others about the care bunnies need.
She recently released a children’s picture book about Flopsy’s life and begins her story with:
I would not have spent $30,000 on college if I had known my greatest teacher would cost me $7.50.
Flopsy unexpectedly changed Gretta’s life in a priceless way and touched thousands of followers along her journey. Gretta received more from her little bunny son than she ever imagined. Through social media, a nonprofit, a bunny sanctuary, and now, a book, Gretta helps support other foster groups, communicates with fans, entertains people, houses bunnies in need of special care, and tells the story behind the life of a bunny that cost her $7.50 to adopt.
The 7.50 Bunny That Changed the World makes the perfect book to download and read with your kids for Easter. It is available through Kindle, Nook, Kobo, or through your local library via OverDrive. To learn more or order the book in paperback or hardcover, visit grettaparker.com. You can also follow her on Facebook. Nose wiggles!
