    Learn about rabbits in your local library with a presentation from the Canada Agriculture Food Museum and their rabbit friend. What do rabbits need? How are they different from us? Are all rabbits the same? What is a hare and where does it live? Does it have predators? As children explore these questions through games and investigations, children will also enjoy a face-to-face visit with a rabbit, and pet its soft fur.
