This book has always been one of my favorites and was the first book I bought as a pastor (yes even before The Giving Tree). It is the story of a little bunny who has decided to run away from home. His mother does not keep him from running away but instead tells him that wherever he runs, she will pursue him. If he becomes a rock on the highest mountain, she will be the mountain climber making her way to him, if he becomes a sailboat on the wide ocean, she will be the wind filling his sails and keeping him safe. It is one of the best metaphors of God's love. Like the mother bunny, God loves us SO much, that God will not keep us from running away, but as the 23 Psalm tells us, wherever we run, wherever we go, no matter how many times we turn away, God's goodness and faithful love will pursue us.
