Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Jeram covers familiar ground in this sweet tale of a lost bunny rescued by his mother. Echoes of Margaret Wise Brown reverberate throughout, both in the use of repetition ("The more Bunny looked for his friends and his mommy the more lost and the more lost and the more lost he became") and in the inclusion of a little ditty that Bunny and his friends, Miss Mouse and Little Duckling, are wont to sing: "We're the little Honeys/ A little Honey is sweet./ Quack quack, squeak squeak,/ Thump your GREAT BIG feet!" In a bit of visual deja vu, Jeram reprises the artistic style employed so successfully in her illustrations for Sam McBratney's Guess How Much I Love You, again hewing to a soft, woodsy palette of mossy greens and browns, and tucking in the kind of small details?mushrooms, a snail who pops up on nearly every page, a duckling splashing in a puddle?that delight the very young. The humorous moments showcase Jeram at her best, as when Bunny, in his search for his mother, parts the fronds of a fern and peers quizzically through. While the path is well worn, the trek is a comfortable one, and the conclusion will elicit smiles all around. Ages 2-5.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1?This overly sweet picture book by the illustrator of Sam McBratney's Guess How Much I Love You (Candlewick, 1995) once again attempts to show the strength of parental love. Little Bunny is obviously well cared for by his adoring mother, who calls him "Bunny, my Honey." During a game with Miss Mouse and Little Duckling, Bunny wanders off and becomes lost. Frightened, he calls for Mommy, who, of course, is also searching for him. Despite the reassuring conclusion, the story is slight and the narration has a precious tone. Young readers may question why Mommy Rabbit also calls Miss Mouse and Little Duckling her "little Honeys." The illustrations are endearing, but not enough to compensate for the narrative flaws. The McBratney book and Margaret Wise Brown's The Runaway Bunny (HarperCollins, 1942) are better choices.?Heide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, WI

I picked this book out for my 2 1/2 year old daughter and she really enjoys it. The story is simple. There is a mommy bunny, baby bunny and baby bunny's two friends, Little Duckling and Miss Mouse. Baby bunny wanders too far one day and gets lost. No one is to blame, it's just something bad that happened. Baby bunny crys for his mommy when he hears "Bunny my honey!" (At this point, my daughter loves to yell out "It's his mommy!!!!") They have a happy reunion and share a tender moment. Mommy bunny also mentions that she loves her "other honeys" too, as Little Duckling and Miss Mouse gather close. The little friends all sing a song when they are together and it is up to the reader to make up the rhythm to the words. (Don't worry, it's an easy sing-song rhyme and my daughter seems to enjoy that I sing it a little differently each time. She also makes up her own rhythms for the rhyme as she sings.) I personally love the reunion page, it really encourages you to share a special moment with your child. Although I imagine a group of children would enjoy being read this story, I think it's made extra special when shared with your own "Bunny My Honey".

This is an absolutely precious book that I bought for my own 5-year-old after he confided that he liked being called my "Honey Bunny." I wondered if he would find the book too sweet and too young; instead, it opened the way for great discussion about unconditional love. It's become a bed-time favorite for all ages in this household!

This book was so wonderful and the illustrations were so sweet that I bought it for myself even though I have no children (and am a full-fledged grown-up). The story is simple enough for a toddler and yet the emotion is so clearly portrayed that it touches even adult hearts. Who doesn't fear being lost from those we love, at any age? And who cannot appreciate the warm love of Mommy Rabbit? And the illustrations are again, cute enough for toddlers to enjoy but beautiful and detailed enough for an adult to appreciate. Truly a classic for all ages!!

This is one of my 2 1/2 year olds favorite books, as well as mine. She loves saying the "little Honey's" verse. She really gets involved in the story when I read it. She gets worried when bunny is lost and so happy when he finds his mommy. I recently took this too a nursery class for children 1 1/2 - 3 years old and they all had the same reaction. The pictures are wonderful and the story so sweet. It is a book for all ages and a must have.

Format: Paperback
My two-year-old and I like this book because I always call him "honey bunny" - and although, "honey, my bunny" isn't exactly the same, it's close enough for my son. He particularly likes the picture where the little bunny is lost in the woods and you can see the mommy bunny's ears sticking up behind a big root - so you know the bunny is about to be found.

The illustrations are beautiful, and the text is short and sweet. This would be a great book to give as gift for a baby.

My almost 7 year old wants me to read this book every night. It would be a perfect gift for a new-born.

It's not the same as the paperback! :( My toddler has the paperback memorized at nana's, so I thought having his own copy at home would be nice, and thought the cardboard one would be good for his little hands. Nope. There isn't a back page, and some of the pages are either missing or combined. The whole story is still there, but certain pictures are missing. He's not impressed. But it's still a really cute story.
