Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

"Here are Paul and Judy. They can do lots of things. You can do lots of things, too." Pat the Bunny is the original interactive, multimedia experience for kids. Virtually unchanged since its introduction in 1940, the kind tone and sweet illustrations in this classic recall a bygone era, while the simple language and large print invite kids to get interested in the written word as an invitation to thought and action. Each page shows Paul or Judy involved in an activity--playing peekaboo, smelling flowers, and, of course, patting the bunny--and then guides the reader to do the same. On the pages are a scrap of cloth with Paul hiding underneath (peekaboo), fuzzy fabric (the bunny), scented paper (the flowers), and five other now-famous features that invite a child to play with the book. As one of the bestselling children's books of all time, Pat the Bunny has become a tradition passed from one generation to the next to instill a love of books and reading. This gift set includes the book and a soft, baby-safe velour bunny toy that is loyal to the quirky bunny illustration in the book. Baby will love to take bunny along when the book has to go back on the shelf. (From birth) --Katherine Ferguson --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Review

Golden Touch and Feel Books are irresistible first books for toddlers. They contain things to touch, things to move, things to smell, and hidden surprises to peek at. Dorothy Kunhardt's Pat the Bunny, published in 1940, is one of the bestselling children's books of all time. Its companions in this set, Pat the Cat and Pat the Puppy, were written and illustrated by Dorothy Kunhardt's daughter, Edith. These three books make a perfect gift--already boxed and ready for wrapping! -- Golden --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This was one of my favorite books when I was a child.
C. Steele
I was very disappointed to open the book and find it was still the same paper pages and plastic spiral binding.

I buy this book to attach to every baby shower gift I give.

Some things become life experiences not only for one's child, but for oneself. "Pat the Bunny" is such a book. It is so dear, so simple, and so very, very perfect that it is deceptive. It really can teach a very young baby about textures and colors and the fact that the world is a varied and wonderful place.
When my first child (now almost 18) was less than 6 months old, I would take her tiny hand and place her chubby fingers on each different texture...the bunny, the cloth, and of course my favorite...Daddy's scratchy beard! (a piece of sandpaper). I don't know how much of the simple and sweet words my daughter absorbed, but she was cuddled in my arms, being rocked (our favorite place to read) and she definitely liked to touch the textures. Now the interesting thing is that the book remained special, and when she should have outgrown it, she did not. It remained in the collection. I think that's because it is just so peaceful and simple, remnants of a former time.
If you are expecting, if one of your friends has a new baby, if you are a grandparent or a loving aunt or uncle, you cannot give a better book for a new baby. It will be that baby's cherished book in short order. Guaranteed. One word of warning, though. Make sure that you are buying the original, with all the textures. I saw one oversized board book version the other day, and its only texture was the cotton of the bunny, which carried through to each page. No no!! We need everything right for this book of a lifetime.

Pat The Bunny is one of my 10-month-old daughter's favorite toys. She likes to leaf through the pages, and especially likes to play peek-a-boo with Paul and to look in the mirror like Judy does. The book captures her interest for relatively long periods of time. My only concern is that the plastic binding is somewhat flimsy and my daughter keeps pulling the book apart. I can put it back together again, but I wish that Pat The Bunny came as a standard bound board book that wouldn't fall apart quite so easily. It has to endure a lot of baby love and attention!

It took my son weeks to demolish his first little version of this beloved book, which also had the plastic comb binding. I bought this one thinking it was bound in some other manner. It is a "deluxe" version, and even has a few pages that the first version we got (with stuffed rabbit included) did not have, but with in 15 minutes of his looking at it by himself, my 19 month old son (who has not destroyed any other book, ever) had this one separated from the hard cover, and now it's just the pages, which will soon be all apart as well. I'm serious, it took only a few minutes of his turning the pages by himself, quietly. I could sit down and work each plastic curl back into the holes of the cover, or I could take the whole plastic comb out and find some other way to hold it together, but I don't know what to do except look for another format of this book he loves, while trying to find a way to keep it in one piece just a little longer. This is a ridiculous way to put together a book for anyone under age 7. And I rarely leave reviews like this, I try and resolve the issue with the manufacturer but we have waited months for this book, and it's come apart in 15 minutes??? This is my first ever one star review, and it's sad, because this is a fantastic book.

My 1 year old loves this book so much she tore it to pieces. It has many touch and feel items such as 1) a soft bunny and "daddy's" scratchy beard to touch, 2) flowers to smell, and 3) a boy who has a cloth over his face to play peek-a-boo with. It is truly a classic!

I did not give this book 5 stars because of its plastic ring binding, which allows children to easily tear the book apart. I have had to piece this book together several times and at this point it is beyond repair.

Pat the Bunny is great, but Pat the Cat and Pat the Puppy are poor copies. Their activities are not as toddler-friendly, and I wish that I had only bought Pat the Bunny.

My son got this book when he was 2 or 3 months old. We would read it to him occasionally as he was getting older. When he got to be about 6 months, he could do most of the things in the book (play peek-a-boo with Paul, pat the bunny, etc.). Now that he is a year, he does everything -- he waves to Paul & Judy, he puts his finger in the ring, smells the flowers, etc. He loves this book so much, the cover has come off and we have to purchase another.
The great thing about this book is that there is something fun for them to do on every page, and it grows with your child. The only drawback I found is that it's not super-durable if your child really loves it and reads it over and over and over and over... :-)

We received a copy of Pat the Bunny for a baby shower. My daughter loved the first book, but it was a small paper-back, plastic-spiral-bound version. When it was finally destroyed beyond repair, I started my search for a more durable copy. I found this one and purchased it because it said it was a board book. (To me, that meant it was a hard-cover with hard pages.) I was very disappointed to open the book and find it was still the same paper pages and plastic spiral binding. We've had it for 2 days, have read it twice and already had to put the entire group of pages back into the spiral binding. Absolutely love this story and will continue to read it with my daughter and future child, but I sure wish someone would make a true board book version.
