It's a Bunny of a Day!

Kindergarten students in Mrs. Fielbrandt's class had a unique opportunity of meeting, holding and feeding Polish rabbits. Polish rabbits are a small breed, typically weighing not more than three pounds, so this breed is perfect for small hands to handle. "Raising rabbits has brought so much joy to our family. It teaches our kids great responsibility and daily chores," said Wilkshire parent, Alysse Crum.
