“Come on Cranky Bunny,” shouted Cranky Bunny’s Aunt Sarah. “I want to take you to the Easter egg hunt but we have to hurry because all the good Easter eggs will be taken.”
“Fine!” yelled Cranky Bunny. “I’m coming.”
“I see you are cranky,” said Aunt Sarah. “I can always go alone.”
“Sorry,” said Cranky Bunny, trying to put a smile on his face.
“Good,” said Aunt Sarah, pinching Cranky Bunny’s cheek. “You should smile more often. It suits you so much better than that frown of yours.”
Cranky Bunny and Aunt Sarah were having a lot of fun at the Easter egg hunt. Cranky Bunny was able to get quite a few Easter chocolates.
“I am so happy to see you enjoying yourself,” said Aunt Sarah.
“Thank you,” said Cranky Bunny. “This is a lot of fun.”
Cranky Bunny heard a loud voice behind him. It was the voice of Sammy, a neighbour of his.
“I don’t have to like Easter at all,” yelled Sammy, stomping his feet. “I don’t see what the big deal is.”
“How can you not like Easter?” asked Cranky Bunny. “Easter is so colourful and so joyous.”
“I think it is silly,” said Sammy. “I don’t like all the fuss.”
“What fuss?” asked Cranky Bunny. “Easter is about the same as Christmas. It is meant for families to spend time together. You do love your family, don’t you?”
“Yes,” said Sammy. “I do love my family very much.”
“Well then,” said Cranky Bunny. “There is no need for you to not like Easter.”
“I do suppose you are right,” said Sammy.
“Does that mean you do like Easter now?” asked Cranky Bunny.
“Yes,” said Sammy. “I suppose it does.”
“Good,” said Cranky Bunny.
“I am very proud of you,” said Aunt Sarah, later that day. “You helped Sammy like Easter.”
“Thank you,” said Cranky Bunny. “It is important that everyone likes Easter but more importantly, it is important everyone loves their family.”
“Very true,” said Aunt Sarah.
“I love you,” said Cranky Bunny.
“I love you as well,” said Aunt Sarah, giving Cranky Bunny a hug.
