Thanks so much to Heather Brown and A.J. Hilton for having us!


This free, family-friendly event is the perfect opportunity to celebrate reading with some amazing animals. Come and read a book about bunnies to an actual bunny and enjoy the company of these adorable creatures. It’s a unique and fun experience that you won’t want to miss! The Bunny Besties at the event thoroughly enjoy being cuddled as they listen attentively while being read to. They have been highly trained in Animal Assisted Interactions (AAI) and have been featured on Minnesota Live, 5 Eyewitness News, The Huffington Post, The Star Tribune, pictured in the Wall Street Journal, WCCO, Kare11, KSTP News Minnesota, Fox 9 News and more.
