Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-This book celebrates the great joy toddlers have in tossing or pulling things overboard! With a thick black line and solid expanses of vibrant color-be it orange, green, or fuchsia-the illustrations are animated and energetic. A mischievous duo, a bunny and a mouse, are giddy instigators, cheering as they send a bowl of peaches flying, splat! splat! splat! off of the highchair, or as the rubber ducky gets flung out of the tub. Then there's the backpack that's pulled off the table, resulting in a rewarding picnic lunch on the floor and the book that's pushed off the shelf, causing a mess of spilled paint. All of the fun progresses without reprimands but, fortunately, Mama is nearby when bunny goes overboard off the steps. Then it's off to bed but not before one last exuberant, overboard! The large, uncluttered illustrations on backgrounds of solid color create the energy while the rhyming text sets the stage for the persistent antics of bunny and mouse. This book is meant to be read aloud with gleeful audience participation each time the page is turned with another delight-filled exclamation.-Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI

From Booklist

PreS. A little bunny thrills with the power of throwing objects overboard: a bowl of peaches at mealtime ("splat! splat! splat!"), a rubber ducky at bath time ("bye, bye, bye"), and so on through the day. His amazingly patient mama is there to catch him when he goes overboard himself and to tuck him into his crib for the night before he tosses out one last stuffed animal ("overboard!")^B in a game that never gets old--for him. Bright and sunny as only a toddler's book on the subject could be, the rhyming, rhythmic text bounces merrily along, while the broad lines and bold colors of the artwork express the same carefree sense of exuberance. This story could inspire the most tiresome sort of play from a caregiver's point of view, yet its slice-of-childhood subject and playful spirit make it a winner in every other way. Carolyn Phelan

Both my kids, age 4 and 2, love this book.

I have read it so many times that I have it memorized and when I start to recite it when she is cranky in the car, I always get a smile.
K. Harrison
The illustrations are as fun as the book, with bright colors within strong black lines.

Baby Bunny likes to throw things. Peaches? Overboard off the highchair! Favorite pajamas? Overboard out of the crib! Rubber Ducky? Overboard from the tub!

If it isn't tied down, Baby Bunny throws it overboard. Nothing is safe...not even himself when he decides to go up high.

OVERBOARD is the cutest little picture story book for ages 2 to 5. When I read the write-up on Amazon, I thought I sounded too adorable for words...and it is. My three-year-old wants to hear the story over and over. OVERBOARD is her new favorite book.

My one-year-old is equally transfixed by the tale, studying the colorful pictures with complete fascination. OVERBOARD is sure to be a hit in other homes with small children. Pick up OVERBOARD today for your favorite toddler or preschooler. You won't be disappointed.

Armchair Interviews says: Written in a quirky engaging manner, this book is a winner..

All babies seem toEnjoy throwing things down to seeif us adults will pick them up. The bunny in this picture book is no exception. He throws all sorts of stuff overboard. From his food to his toys he love the "drop game"!

It seems to be just the right length for the picture book crowd.

Babies and toddlers will both enjoy this being read aloud.

Both my kids, age 4 and 2, love this book. Something about seeing the little bunny making a mess just cracks them up. I find the book fun to read as well; the author and illustrator have really captured the spirit of a toddler and it makes me smile to see so much of my kids in the character.

Format: Hardcover
The quintessential read-aloud book, OVERBOARD chronicles the adventures of "one little bunny who likes to fling things." He tosses peaches overboard. Favorite jammies? Overboard! Bunny wipers and bunny diapers? You guessed it! And, of course, youngsters (and even oldsters) will want to join the chorus, chanting "overboard!," as each item is flung to the ground. The text has strong rhythm and rhyme, helps children ages 2-3 start developing phonological awareness, so this book is more than just a fun read; it's a good choice for encouraging early literacy skills. The illustrations are as fun as the book, with bright colors within strong black lines. Sure to be a hit in storytime and for one-on-one reading.

The only way I could love this book more would be if it were offered in board-book format so the tiny terror could be trusted to handle it by himself. As it stands, it's currently in the "mama-touch" pile, but it's a solid favorite. Bright colors, rhymes with a bit of nonsense in, and it's all about his favorite activity - throwing things around. For adults, there's definitely some humor when you see bunny doing naughty things your little one did just the other day. (The page where bunny dumps a whole shelf of books rang especially true for us!) We bought this on impulse at the grocery store, and it was a great buy.
