Books for youngest readers featuring well-known characters are back in books with new sizes and formats. Rosemary Wells's Read to Your Bunny, which featured prominently in the 1997 "Read to Your Bunny" campaign, is now available in a larger, lap-size board book edition. About the original edition PW wrote, "The joy of reading shines on every fuzzy face." Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
PreS‘A celebration of the pleasures of reading that will have more appeal to adults than to preschoolers. Using a multicolored cast of bunnies, Wells shows that reading can be done anywhere‘on a plane or a boat, or even in a bathtub. "Read to your bunny often,/It's twenty minutes of fun./It's twenty minutes of moonlight,/And twenty minutes of sun." A final note again stresses the value of reading to children. While this message-laden story could have been overwhelming, Wells manages to steer clear of didacticism through her heartwarming illustrations. Each framed scene is a loving tribute both precise and precious and wholly satisfying in artistic presentation and integrity. The book's small size and large print make this a perfect gift for new parents or for anyone who reads to children.‘Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI
