This sweet, expressive picture book showcases tender moments between a parent bunny and her little one. With adorable illustrations and a soft, rhythmic tone, this is the perfect book for an Easter basket, a thoughtful gift or an afternoon snuggle!
★★★★★ | This beautifully illustrated picture book is a perfect addition for any young child’s library. Sean Julian creatively displays these adorable bunnies with soft edges, bright colors and eye catching backdrops. The sweet animals romp and play throughout the pages with other cute animals in the background. At the turn of each page, there is a sweet, rhythmic lyric for parents to read to their children that embraces the bond between a parent and child. I Love You, Funny Bunny expresses the beauty of a strong love and all the tiny, wonderful moments we often take for granted as parents.
As a parent myself, reading this book to my 9 month old daughter, I found this book to be sweet and tender. I love the way she scrunches her nose and calls my name and forget to tell her that as often as I should. I adored that I Love You, Funny Bunny encouraged unconditional love, while building self esteem in a child and thus strengthening a parent/child bond.
I believe this book is well suited for young children under the age of 8. Because the rhymes are short and sweet, and each page is a change of colors and setting, this picture book will capture even the shortest of young attention spans. The cover is a paper jacket over a hard bound, illustrated cover and the pages inside are thick sturdy paper. The book would make an excellent Easter basket addition, a thoughtful gift for a new parent or young child or as an addition to your own child’s collection.
Lastly, pick up your own copy of I Love You, Funny Bunny or borrow it from your local library.
