Reading to Your Bunny

Unknown Premiere

USA | 9 MINUTES | English |


In this delightful animated short, Freddy Bunny learns to love books and learning after his parents start reading to him for 20 minutes each day. In no time at all, the TV and video game-addicted Freddy has become a super-student, thanks in no small part to his encouraging teacher and the support of the Book Fairy. Directed by legendary animator Michael Sporn, Reading to Your Bunny also contains an original song performed by Mary Chapin Carpenter.


Directed by Michael Sporn and Ishai Setton
