McMullan, Kate. If You Were My Bunny. Illustrated by David McPhail. “A StoryPlay book.” Cartwheel Books/Scholastic, 2018. $5.99 ISBN 9781338232196. Unpaged. Ages 3-5. P7Q8
This adorable book features five stories based on animal babies and their bedtime routines. There is a bunny, a bear cub, a kitten, a duckling, and a puppy that are all getting ready for bed with a loving parent comforting them along the way. A feature all parents will appreciate is on each page there are suggestions for child/parent interactions. The illustrations are soft and soothing, a perfect bedtime book. Reissue, originally published by Scholastic in 1996.
VERDICT: I really liked the lyrical verses in the book. I can see this book becoming a bedtime favorite for young children.
