Good Lessons and Cute Bunnies!,
This review is from: Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity (Hardcover)
Hayden S., age 7, Southeast Michigan Mensa
This is story about a little girl who owns a Knuffle bunny. She goes to school with her Knuffle bunny, but she discovers that there is another bunny at show and tell. She is sad that her bunny isn’t unique. Another girl has a Nuffle bunny. Trixie and Sonja argue about their bunnies and this leads to the teacher grabbing the bunnies from the girls and placing them on a high shelf for the rest of the day. Later, the bell rings and the teacher gives the bunnies back, but she accidently gives Knuffle bunny to Sonja and Nuffle bunny to Trixie. At first, the girls don’t realize it, but in bed they can’t sleep because they notice it’s not the right bunny. Trixie and Sonja both tell their dad to make a phone call to the other’s dad. The dad’s rush across town with their daughters and exchange the bunnies. The girls are so happy and they become best friends. The next morning the girls have lots of catching up to do with playing with their bunnies.
Others would enjoy this book too. It’s a pleasant story about friendship forming and sharing. These are things that would make everyone smile.
I found it interesting that the bunnies are not actually identical. They can easily be told apart by the color of their ears and the Knuffle bunny has a bow on its head. I think the author made them different so the reader could see that the girls were given the wrong bunny and anticipate the reaction. The most useful part of the book is that it shows that friendship is more important than toys. It also teaching that sharing is a part of friendship.
I think young children up to aged seven would enjoy this book. The lessons are useful for all children and people though.
I give this book a five star rating for the good lessons and cute bunnies.
