The Field Guide to Rabbits by Samantha Johnson, 144 p., 2008

A good introduction to raising rabbits. I especially liked the many photographs of the various rabbit colors and rabbit breeds. This book has chapters covering rabbit history, fur varieties, ears and sizes, color guide & genetics, behavior, handling, kindling, showing, and breed profiles. Color photos.

Holland Lop Rabbits by Ann Fletcher, 150 p, 2013 

Definitely not a “complete” guide but a very basic book, good introduction for someone who has never had a rabbit before, or for a youth.

Freckles the Rabbit by Jane Burton, 24p., 1988

A children's book but the photos will be enjoyed by readers of all ages. Shows the birth of 2 lop rabbits, Freckles and her sibling, how they grow from a few weeks old to several months and how finally Freckles has a litter of her own. The little lops are very cute. Also includes general rabbit information. Color photos. Unfortunately this book is out-of-print but may be available used.
