Bunny's Book Club review

Bunny's Book Club

It tells the story of a book-loving bunny who sneaks into the town library and borrows books for all his forest friends.(goodreads summary)

A book loving bunny is at a loss when the summer reading program moves indoors because the weather turns cold.  So one night, Bunny sees an opportunity sneaking into the library through the book return and is amazed by all the books he finds.  Each night he returns collecting new ones and soon his little home is bursting with many interesting stories ! One-by-one Bunny's forest friends start to wonder his whereabouts and decides to let them in on his secret by taking them to the library.  With much curiosity, the critters discover wonderful choices to read for themselves. Suddenly, the librarian comes in and catches the group! There are rules in the library but she offers them an unexpected surprise that will help keep their love of reading books alive.  

I knew when I saw this sweet cover that I would find a delightful story inside.  This charming book is perfect for a library story time or just snuggling up to read aloud to your child. The soft watercolor illustrations add to the whimsy of the story with cute character expression and detail. I enjoyed the subtle humor and will make kids giggle as porcupine asks about a book on balloons to read or when bear gets stuck in the book drop causing a delay.  While the animals explore all that the library has to offer, this book sends a positive message on reading, adventures, imagination and finding that just right book. In the end, Bunny has a book club that just may inspire one in your classroom or home. I am definitely glad I found this story to share.  I hope to see more bunny loving book stories by this author and illustrator in the future.  I think this is a "just right book" for ages 3-6.~
