Very cute eyebrows on very cute bunnies

There's absolutely no story to this book, I think it's more for the parents to enjoy than the children. I will say the illustrations appeal to any age. However, I have to put on my frowny pants and grump all over Melanie Watt for introducing my girls to such horrifying notions as "sticking gum under the sofa," and "running on carpet with muddy feet." Upon hearing the line, "as unfair as being too short to go on a ride," one of my 4 year olds said, "that's not about fair, that's about safe if a little kid falls off a ride!" I take issue with teaching kids that having to go to bed and having to eat a brusselsprout is unfair.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Readers will fall in love with the cute bunny, whose eyebrows leap off his face when he's excited to see you and whose ears droop when the arrow on his bored-o-meter points to "Bored Up To My Ears." There are some great visual gags, such as the bunny standing up from a bench marked "wet paint" with khaki stripes across his back. But not only will this book have kids laughing, it could also lead to some good discussions about feelings, and even how it's possible to feel many things at the same time.

Drawn in a very cartoonish way, the bunny's emotions are easy to read, whether he's feeling excited to see you, or really annoyed. There are some great visual gags, such as the bunny standing up from a bench marked "wet paint" with khaki stripes across his back.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
