1. Read It's Not Easy Being a Bunny (Beginner Books(R)) by Marily Sadler - This is a great story to help your childlearn to be thankful for what hy has and who he are. In the story P.J. Funnybunny was sad because he didn't like being a bunny. He had to eat cooked carrots every day, and he had too many brothers and sisters. He decided he didn't want to be a bunny any more. He tried being a bear, but living with the bears wasn't very exciting because they slept all winter long. He tried being a bird, a beaver, a pig, and a moose, but none of them worked out. At the end he decides what he really wants to be is a bunny, and it's not so bad being a bunny after all.

Discuss what he would have liked about living with those animals and what he wouldn't have liked. Ask your child if he had a to be an animal, what animal would he be.
