In a Leap Day program at the Jaffrey Public Library, children and their caregivers got up close and personal with a mini rex rabbit named Snoopy and learned all about a rabbit’s life as a leaper.

Children patted and fed Snoopy while learning about his behavior and adaptations, how to identify rabbit tracks and movement patterns in the wild. Some tried leaping like a rabbit to see how far they could leap, and they all created their own rabbit track stories.
