Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

reS-Little Bunny is back with yet another childhood problem to conquer. This time he practices with a doll so that he will be ready when the new baby arrives. Predictably, Little Bunny is troubled that Kale cries, gets all the attention, and smells bad, but Papa and Mama Bunny gently console him and turn each situation into a positive one. The story has a happy ending when LB makes the infant laugh. He then realizes that he can take his brother to school when his teacher sends a note home requesting that he share something that begins with the letter K. Bright watercolor-and-ink illustrations portray the loving family in cartoon style. As one of a host of picture books about the arrival of a new baby, including Amy Hest's You're the Boss, Baby Duck! (Candlewick, 1997), this title is just average.

From Booklist

Ages 3-5. Children who know Little Bunny from his previous books, such as Dry Days, Wet Nights (1996) and Little Bunny's Pacifier Plan (1999), will expect this young Everybunny to reflect their own concerns as he deals with his newest challenge. And so he does. Well prepared for the birth of his brother, Little Bunny loves him at first sight. Soon, though, he complains about changes in the household, from the sound of crying and the smell of diapers to the necessity of quiet during his brother's nap. Little Bunny's understanding parents acknowledge every comment and find ways to accommodate him as he adjusts to life with brother. Kindness infuses both writing and artwork in this supportive book for siblings of babies. Boelts has a good ear for the feelings of a preschooler, and if the parents seem a little idealized, they serve as both role models and magnets of hope for the book's potential readers and listeners. Parkinson's friendly illustrations, in ink and watercolor, will draw children to this appealing picture book. Carolyn Phelan

We got this book from my parents when we were expecting our second. Our oldest was still very young, only 16 months at his brother's birth. So I'm sure it didn't make much sense to him then, but with a new addition coming soon, I was excited to find it again in our book shelf.

The book is about a young school aged bunny who gets a baby doll for a present, so he can practice being a big brother. He was very excited!! When the new baby comes, he's still very excited, and loves his new baby brother. But it doesn't take long before he starts to not like his brother so much. His brother cries a lot, gets lots of attention, and stinks (those crazy diapers), and has all kinds of adults telling him what a big help he needs to be. Through it all, his parents continue to show Little Bunny their love for him, making sure he feels a part of the family. When it's Little Bunny's turn to bring something to show-n-tell, he brings his brother, because by that time his baby brother has learned how to laugh and is much more fun!!

A cute story to remind new `older siblings' that their new baby will grow up and become more fun as they get bigger.

* Note, Amazon and the author did not pay me to write this review, it was just a fun book on our bookshelf.

A good book to read to your young child or about a 2nd grade reading level

This book, written by Maribeth Boelts and illustrated by Kathy Parkinson, doesn't seem to have gotten much attention. Which is too bad, because this is a great story about a having a new sibling in the family.

In this story, Little Bunny is excited when he learns he's going to be a big brother. He asks all sorts of questions and can't wait for the baby to come. But when it finally does come, he begins to worry that it's going to take up all his parents' time.

It's a common story, but it's well-done. The illustrations are very soft and gentle --- perfect for this sort of story. The text is appealing and understandable --- very relatable. Readers will enjoy the ending as well.

More About the Author

Maribeth Boelts lives in Iowa with her family and has been writing for children for almost 20 years. Her most recent titles, "Those Shoes" and "Before You Were Mine" have won a number of awards. Her picture book, "Happy Like Soccer" was published May, 2012, and another picture book is forthcoming from Candlewick Press. A former teacher, Maribeth enjoys meeting and encouraging kids to read and write. "It is, in equal parts, an enthralling and confusing quest trying to crack the code on what makes a child pull a book off the shelf and continue turning the page. Figuring out what makes that same child laugh, feel understood or inspired is what keeps this career so interesting. I am grateful for every reader."
