About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
HFAB is also a rarity in baby books in that it has a recognizable plot, with scenes and dialogue. This gives parents a chance to practice their storytelling skills. I enjoy using different voices for the characters (e.g., a low, low voice for the frog, and a nasal one for the groundhog). Plus, having a plot helps develop the child's ability to follow a sequence of events.
And for the crowning praise--it is my 2-year old's favorite book. As soon as we finish reading it, he asks to hear it again, and again, and again. How can a book get any better than that?
Margaret Wise Brown has put together a rhythmic, engaging story about a bunny that seeks for its own place. As the story progresses there are lessons that can be learned and taught about changes of the seasons, and where animals live and what they do.
I like the pictures, the story, the whole ball of wax. We have read this book over and over to our children. When it resurfaces from the bottom of a stack of books it still gets read through a couple of times -- by popular demand!
5 stars all the way.
The illustrations are glorious - simple but colorful - they tell the story but don't get in its way. This helps the book work for children as young as 1 1/2 and as old as 5. The book is "only" about a bunny looking for a home and all the homes and friends he meets while he's looking. But isn't that what we're all doing - trying to find a safe, warm and happy place?
The writing is sweet and the illustrations charming. Highly recommended. It's a keeper, for sure.
If teething baby playing with books, rather than being read to, get the hard, thick edition.
