Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Bunny by Steve Smallman is the story of four little bunnies named Lenny, Benny, Barney and Itty Bitty Betty. The four bunnies have run out of carrots and are hungry. They send Lenny, Benny and finally Barney to the garden to gather carrots but each one returns home scared and empty handed. Betty finally gets them to tell her what happens when they arrive in the garden and begin pulling carrots. A Big Bad Bully Bunny is making fun of them and stealing their carrots. Betty decides they will all go to the garden together and tackle this issue. Sure enough when they have gathered a very large bundle of carrots the Big Bad Bully Bunny shows himself to the other bunnies. But this time Betty stands up to him and throws him off guard. The four of them together stand up to the bully and finally walk away with the carrots they have been seeking all day long.
Bullying has become a really big deal recently and this story is a great way to introduce small children to bullying. Small children can see that the bully bunny is not being nice and doing the right thing. It is an opportunity to discuss the issue on a level that they can understand. The illustrations are really bright and playful and make the story light, even with the deep topic. My boys really liked the book and I loved being able to talk about treating others the way we want to be treated. We would recommend this one to others. Warning: the bully bunny does threaten the other bunnies by calling them stupid, ugly, and fat. We don't like our boys to use those word's toward anyone but we definitely don't like them saying stupid so they were all over me when I said the word in the book so if you are uncomfortable with name calling, this book might not be for your family. review from [...]
