Does your young reader have an inseparable toy?
In Bunny's Lessons, we learn about the inseparable pair--Bunny and Charlie. Bunny is Charlie's favorite toy, and Charlie is Bunny's friend and teacher. After all, whatever he knows, he's learned from Charlie. When Charlie plays the tuba, Bunny learns about LOUD; when they play doctor, Bunny learns about OUCH; when they eat dinner, Bunny learns about MESSY.
The format of this book makes for a great dual read for emerging readers. Parents and caregivers can read the story and your emerging reader can read what Bunny learns. And he learns everything from jealous to lonely to scared to sad. But in the end, the most important lesson is LOVE.
Harriet Ziefert and Barroux, the creative mind behind EXTRAordinary Pets, have created a unique story about attachments to stuffed animals. Young readers will eat up the illustrations and they'll learn about MORE--something they'll be asking with this book--to read MORE.
