Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2–Three bunny siblings find much better things to do than go to sleep. Each time their parents look in on them, they are playing with cars or trains or pretending to be cowboys and even a marching band. Despite numerous warnings, the noisy little creatures just cannot stay in their beds. Finally the house is quiet, but when the youngsters creep down the hall and discover their parents fast asleep, they plan to play all night long. But soon a new noise is heard, the snoring of bunnies who have played themselves to sleep. A simple pattern moves this tale along. Mama and Daddy are trying to wind down for the evening with a bit of reading and some tea and carrot cake, but loud sounds from the bedroom send them repeatedly upstairs to admonish their children and put them back in bed. The colorful, folksy gouache illustrations bring real personality to the text with expressions of exasperation, amusement, and joy. The text is placed in and around the art and has a large, bold font to emphasize the raucous sounds of the little rabbits. Despite the winning illustrations, the tale seems a bit stale and overly long.–Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH

From Booklist

From the inviting jacket picturing three bunnies jumping on their beds to the last good-night line, the antics of these mischievous cuties will command repeated bedtime readings. After tucking in their little bunnies and saying good night, Mama and Daddy settle down to read. Soon, however, telltale sounds reveal that the bunnies are not in their beds. "Click Clack": the bunnies are setting up train tracks on the floor. "Clip Clop, Clip Clop": they are riding hobbyhorses. "Zoom, Zoom": they are racing cars. Mama and Daddy are stern: "No more tracks, no more trains, no more horses, no more cars. No more mischief!" In the end, the bunnies still seem to have outsmarted their parents; but have they? The simple design, charmingly attired bunnies, and witty details (Mama is reading Hare Raising Stories)in the gouache illustrations add a cozy layer of warmth to this fresh, engaging take on a familiar scenario. The sound effects, rendered in large type, will inspire a chorus of giggles as well as plenty of participation. Good night; sleep tight. Julie Cummins

Format: Paperback
There are, you know, not that many books that parents and young children can enjoy together. I can't tell you how many times my four-year-olds have handed me a book, and I just cringe, because I don't want to read that book ever again. Some of that is over-familiarity, some of it is because the book is dated or cloying, and some of it is just the whole mind-numbing commercialism of some kids' books - Clifford, the Big Red Dog, I am looking at YOU - but this one is good. Mischievous bunnies! Dress-up! Stressful bedtimes with hectoring lectures from Mommy and Daddy, who just want a little piece and quiet. And a nice, quiet, sleepy-time ending. Buy this book for you, and read it to your kids.

My two-year old loves this book. I think he lives vicariously through them. The book is very engaging and every parent and child has lived through some version of this. It has a cute little spin on it. It's fun to read out loud because the writing flows really well for that. Highly recommend the book.

Format: Paperback
Ever had kids who just will not go to bed? They seem to think that bedtime is optional and that playtime is supposed to be all the time? Well, then you might have a time or two in common with these two rabbit parents who have bunny triplets who keep getting out of bed. They get up and play with their toys, no matter what their parents say! Actually they’re quite badly behaved for bunnies. After the parents fall asleep, the bunnies think they will stay up all night and play but eventually they fall asleep as well. May be a good book to read to a child who will just not stay in bed!

My toddler loves this book -- we've checked it out from the library 3 times now, & I'll have to buy it soon. Listening to him repeat the sounds the bunnies make, or identify what mischief they're up to each time, is too precious for words. And I have no clue where the "too long" shot came from in the editorial review above. It's just the right length to help wind down into sleepytime.

The illustrations are precious, it must be added. I think this book will become a bedtime "classic."

Format: Hardcover
Three bunnies do NOT want to go to sleep--they'd rather play trains, trombones, and tricks, but eventually they wear themselves out and follow their parents' lead into dreamland. The beginning endplate is in vibrant color, a view of their home, and the final endplate is black and white, reminiscent of Goodnight Moon's alternating black and white/color, and the bunnies may indeed be great grand children of that one bunny in the great green room those many years ago.

By Janet on October 2, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Despite the negative comment by Ms Callegari 0f School Library Journal about being overlong, the book is absolutely on target for preschoolers. Our little guy, who received a copy for his 4th birthday, had the cheerful text memorized after only a few readings and it's his current bedtime fave. While not a perfect model of little ones settling into bed to immediately drift off to dreams, it hysterically presents bedtime reality.

This book is cute, sweet, well-illustrated, and just the right length. Each time I read, "What is that noise?"....my daughter responds, "sounds like the bunnies are not in their beds!" It contains just enough plot and visual stimuli for a preschooler. It is definitely one of our favorites!
