Spring has sprung! The Rabbit hOle is buzzing with activity, with new and beautiful things appearing everyday - a garden of creativity. If you have a foundation or a family trust that aligns with our mission to create an unparalleled experience around literature that will elevate the reading lives of young people for generations to come, and you would like to make a site visit, we’d love to share our vision with you!

Caps for Sale, written and illustrated by Esphyr Slobodkina, is a beloved and undisputed classic about a peddler who gets into some monkey business.....this environmental and interactive exhibit is a playful homage to Slobodkina's legacy as a fine artist (she was a founding member of the American Abstract Artists group), author, feminist, and pioneer in incorporating developmental learning into narrative. Our metal and foam fabricators are hard at work bringing the tree to fruition, and soon will turn their attention to the Peddler himself and his monkey companions.
Our  RAB FAB expansion is sailing along. Since March, we’ve completed the installation of our new spray booth, built walls and tables for the new wood shop, and have begun construction of our new foam carving area. Our new HVAC unit has been installed (along with two “Big Ass” fans!) and we are in the midst of completing our electrical runs for additional convenience power and several new machines. Come June, we’ll be ready for the next phase of hiring! See below...
what a transformation!

Book Pairing - Everybody Needs a Rock, written by Byrd Baylor and illustrated by Peter Parnall. Pairing by Mary Clara, Rabbit hOle Office Manager

Reading Everybody Needs a Rock for the first time was like finding a long lost friend. I love to spend time outside (especially hunting for rocks) and this book is the perfect companion for an outdoor excursion. It reminds me of the quiet importance and specialness of our environments, and that we can each personally connect to our natural world. 

Give this book a read then find a special place to collect your very own rock. Happy hunting!

-Mary Clara
