Kids say (1 ):

Little kids will love this visually and musically rich special, which is basically a lullaby in animated form. The animation is based on the original book's black and white illustrations by Clement Hurd, but during the songs the little bunny gets transported inside beautiful colorful paintings that celebrate spring. The songs are largely ones that will be more familiar to adults than kids, but kids will love watching the adorable baby bunny's adventures in the richly animated mini-music videos that accompany them. The narration and story are slow-paced and gentle, and will help reassure little ones that the grown-ups in their lives will always be there for them.

Parents should come prepared with a box of tissues, as the story beautifully captures the immensity of parental love. It's very possible that grown-ups may melt into a puddle of bittersweet tears while watching The Runaway Bunny with their littles.

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.
