BUYING ADVISORY: PRE-K – ADVISABLE
AUDIENCE APPEAL: AVERAGE
A little girl and her stuffed bunny go on a grand adventure after the bunny is brought alive by blossom petals. They climb trees, wait out a storm in a tree house, and even ride on clouds. It’s a magical day for both of them. The artwork is accomplished in just a few simple colors and is large enough to share with a group.
This book has the most darling illustrations with a creative layout, and the use of cutouts and sparkly blossom bits. The story is a really cute adventure that will leave the reader wondering if the girl imagined the entire day or the stuffed bunny really did come alive for a time. It’s a charming story that has the feel of a classic.
