I think this book is very age appropriate for children from age 2-8 at least because it can teach them to stay with their parents....

What's the story?

Something has gone terribly wrong! Little Bunny has wandered off and cannot find his mother. Then he hears the cry, \"Bunny my honey!\" Little ones will like hearing the story and knowing it all turns out okay.

 

Is it any good?

The watercolor-and-ink drawings in this book are charming, and the earth browns and fern greens add to the warm feelings. The expressions on the animal faces capture the feeling of the action: enthused at play, confused while lost, and ecstatic when found again. Even though there is little text, younger children repeatedly urged a reader to turn the page to see what happens next, especially since they could determine the story's outcome on their own.

Many children seemed genuinely concerned when the little rabbit is lost, and more than one expressed concern in the form of anger toward the mother rabbit. "How could she let them play by themselves in the woods?" one 5-year-old pondered worriedly, while others seemed anxious and upset. Of course, the story's payoff -- when the two rabbits find one another -- met with cheers from older listeners, while younger ones seemed comforted at the reassurance that "Mommy's always here."

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about getting lost. Kids: Have you ever worried that you had a lost a parent? What should you do if you do think you're lost? Parents can reassure their kids that, like the mother rabbit, they will stay close by.
