PreS-K-Brown's exemplary tale of an inquisitive bunny exploring his world is just right for sharing. The young animal awakens to quiet morning sounds such as fluttering, chirping, "Cock Cock Cock-a-doodle Doo," and "bzzzzzzzz," and then identifies them, asking readers, "What was that?" Then the focus shifts from recognizing noises to making them, such as munching, scratching, and sneezing. As the sun goes down, "the little noises of the night" alert the protagonist that it is time "for little bunnies to be safe in their hole." McCue's brightly colored, detailed illustrations depicting a warm spring day from sunup to sundown are eye-catching and engaging; one can smell the lilacs, feel the sunshine, and thrill to the fireflies' glow at dusk. The affectionate paintings reveal the idyllic life of a carefree rabbit delighting in the woods and fields near his home, populated by numerous animals and insects. This joyful adventure will work well as a lap-sit or storytime selection.-Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI
