Reviews

PreS-Gr 1-Daddy Rabbit calls Bella "Little Baby Not-Sure" because she tends to worry. When he suggests that the family go ice-skating, she hesitates, so they play in the snow instead, building snow rabbits and sledding. Bella builds a snow mouse. "`Well done, my Funny Bunny!' said Daddy." With each successful activity, Bella's nickname changes for the better, so when they finally go skating, she has gained enough confidence to become Daddy's "Super Skater," leaving her worrying ways behind. Although Daddy Rabbit is patient and understanding, his penchant for nicknames makes one wonder how much a moniker reinforces a child's self-image, for better or worse. Still, sweetness abounds in this book, with bright and playful pastel illustrations featuring adorable bunnies frolicking across spreads. An agreeable choice for storytimes dealing with anxiety and self-confidence.-Teri Markson, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
