"Come see. She is very pretty," whispered Mother Bunny.
Little Muslin Bunny peered into the little pink blanket. Inside was nestled a tiny squirming
pink bunny with short pink ears. The baby bunny was completely naked. Not even a little bit of fuzz could
be seen. Her eyes were sealed shut and her ears looked like they were stuck to her body. The baby bunny whimpered

Little Muslin Bunny looked up at Mother Bunny with eyes that were full of wonder. Little Muslin Bunny had never
seen a baby bunny before.
"She's so tiny and pink," said Little Muslin Bunny. "Where is all her fur?" she asked.
Mother Bunny chuckled softly and said, "Baby bunnies are not born with any fur. You were just as pink when you
were born as your little sister is right now."
"The baby's eyes look stuck. Will washing them help her open them?" asked Baby Mouse.
"No. Baby bunnies are born with their eyes closed," said Mother Bunny. "She will not open her eyes until
she's ready. You were the same way, Baby Mouse. You were also born with no fur and with your eyes closed."
"Her ears are very short," said Morgan, the little girl. "I thought all bunnies have long ears," she wondered.
