Reviews

PreS-K-Bunnies exhibiting human behaviors demonstrate how feeling "sad" or "mad" can lead to bad behavior. They may grab, hit, kick, slurp, scream, shout, burp, or fight. The same youngsters replace their rude actions with positive ones. "Good bunnies try/to do what's right./They use their words./They NEVER bite." They say please, do not tease, follow rules, and give hugs. Dewdney's straightforward text, written in short sentences and rhyme, flows well. Full-color artwork effectively captures the facial expressions, conveys the bunnies' changing emotions, and re-creates the activity described in the text. This simple story would be useful to teachers and parents wanting to explore appropriate and inappropriate behavior.-Lynn K. Vanca, Akron-Summit County Public Library, Richfield, OH Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

Although this minimalist, paper-over-board story lacks the flourish and sassy protagonists of Dewdney's Llama Llama books, it delivers a similar bid for good behavior. At the start, three bunnies play together peacefully: "Every little bunny's good. They mostly do the things they should." Mostly is right. One bunny's truck breaks, setting off a chain reaction of naughty behavior as he grabs a playmate's toy, which elicits a kick from the third. The middle scenario shows bunnies at snack time, exhibiting less than exemplary manners; unlike many books on manners, this one succeeds in making the wayward models look generally miserable in their misdeeds and not like pint-size folk heroes. The concluding section reveals much happier bunnies following the rules, sharing and being polite, for which they receive a sugary final accolade ("That's my bunny! Good for you!"). Depicted against a white background, Dewdney's cheerfully clad characters act out a range of strong emotions, making an age-appropriate case that feelings are both a cause and an effect of individual behavior. Ages 2-up. (Jan.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
