Amazon.com Review

Amazon Best Books of the Month, May 2011: Picky eaters may change their tune after reading Michael Kaplan’s confection, Betty Bunny Loves Chocolate Cake. Betty Bunny is reluctant to try new things, but when she tries chocolate cake for the first time, it’s love at first bite. Betty has a big personality, and her new obsession draws teasing from her siblings and some messy situations, but it’s having patience that proves hardest for a bunny who would rather have cake. --Seira Wilson

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-Betty Bunny declares that chocolate cake is "yucky," until she tries it. Then she loves it so much she wants to marry it. Thus begins Kaplan's luscious lark (Dial, 2011) into the world of little Betty Bunny's mischievous interplay with cake, tantrums, and the struggle to be patient. Stephane Jorisch's delectably detailed illustrations perfectly depict the interaction of the four Bunny siblings and their requisite teasing. The eyes and expressions of all the characters are lively and adorable. Youngsters' eyes will go wide when Betty calls her family and her school "yucky" and they will anticipate the goopy results when Betty sneaks cake into her pocket! The narrative performance of British-educated Katherine Kellgren enhances the story. Her voice varies with the characters but retains a sweetness that fits the light-hearted frolic. She places appropriate emphasis on the bold words in the text and her crisp enunciation and pacing allow listeners to grasp the details. Subtle and amusing sound effects such as cute kissy sounds when Betty's mother says she loves her and the "boing" of chair springs when Betty bounces are a nice touch. The story could be useful in lessons on patience and consequences. Page-turn signals are optional. Children will appreciate the silliness and laugh-out-loud antics of the adorably real Betty Bunny.-Jane Newschwander, Fluvanna County Public Schools, VAα(c) Copyright 2011.

This book arrived and our two daughters immediately chose it for their bedtime story. We all loved everything about it ~ the illustrations had great details and the language reminded us of how our family actually talks and just how hard it is for young children to learn patience for yummy treats! Our youngest LOVES chocolate cake and so this earned a special place of honor on her bookshelf and has been requested as the next "Royal Reader" book at school - high praise, indeed!

I bought this book for a nephew whose eyes light up at the word, "cake." This is the perfect book to talk about enjoying sweets, but not going overboard with sugar. The illustrations are perfect for the text, and both generate conversations about eating and appreciating cake.

Her Mom calls Betty Bunny "a handful", and she knows how much she loves her, Betty thinks that must be a very good thing to be. Now that she's tasted her first bite of chocolate cake, it's the only thing she wants to eat, and she wants to eat it now. Betty even takes a slice of cake to school, with disastrous results. Mother tries to teach her about patience - read the final page to see if she succeeded! Told with charm and gentle humor, Betty Bunny Loves Chocolate Cake paints a charming picture of family life. Whimsically illustrated, preschoolers and early readers will love this tale.

This book is such a funny read. I'm not sure who enjoyed it more, me or my four-year-old. It depicts typical sibling relationships and their challenges. Each child character realistically adopts a role - peace-maker, antagonist, thoughtful solution-finder, and of course, "the baby". The mom character is a role-model for all with her extreme patience. The best part is how Betty Bunny thinks and reasons just like a child. I believe the author must have pulled this experience straight from his childhood. Such a delightful story that will make you laugh out loud.

Our fourth child who happens to be a girl has a little spunk to her, just like Betty Bunny. Maybe it is because Betty Bunny is the youngest in the family that she can get away with sneaking to school with chocolate cake in her pocket. At dinner time family rules still apply no chocolate cake before you eat your veggies. We love this book at bedtime for both the cute illustrations, realistic prose, and true life plot of family. Although we checked this one out at the library and renewed as many times as possible, it is time to make a permanent spot on the shelf for Betty Bunny. She might go right beside Frances!

The Book reminds me of a few kids I know and the innocence in which kids think. The title did not peak my interest but it caught my daughter's. Even my older son thinks the book is funny. Well written and fun illustrations.
