Format: Hardcover
Home for a Bunny is a gem, both beautifully written and illustrated. Its gentle rhythm is smooth, great for reading aloud, and reminds one of the journey the bunny is taking: "Down the road and down the road he went. He was going to find a home of his own; a home for a bunny, a home of his own, under a rock, under a stone, under a log, or under the ground. Where would a bunny find a home?" The illustrations are by Garth Williams, lending the story extra beauty and realism. (This same man illustrated the Little House on the Prairie books.)
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?

This was one of my favorite books when I was a child. I even bought a book to have in reserve BEFORE I got married.
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.

What a dear, sweet book. There are very few books I read as a child that I read again for the next generation, but I think we're on the THIRD copy of "Home For a Bunny" because it's read (and slept with) so often.
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?

I have loved this book for a long time. I read it many times to my own girls. It was the perfect book to purchase for my niece for Christmas. The story is so cute about a bunny finding the right home and companion. Along the way the bunny encounters other animals who live in homes that would not be suitable for him. It is written so well, with repetition and rhymes. The illustrations are great, with many recognizable spring wildflowers including tillium and trout lily.

Home for a Bunny should be a part of every child's library. This was the first book I learned to read and 25 years later I am buying it for my new baby girl. The colorful pictures, rhythmic text, and the loveable ending are unforgettable. Home for a Bunny is a classic!

My own children, now in their 40's grew up with this book and they had such fun with it, I have started to give it as a gift to the babies of the next generation and the one after. Every child I buy it for loves it, so I see no reason to stop. It is a helpful bedtime story for the under 5's and can be helpful in the teaching of reading.

My papa used to read this to me when I was a child, and then I apparently grew out of it for a while. I remember coming home from high school during finals week, exhausted. Dad saw me sigh and said, "Well, you're home for a bunny. You can relax now." Memories flooded me and we scrambled to find the book. Now, I've made it a tradition that when a family member or friend is expecting their first child, I give them a copy of this book. It's all about a little bunny(baby)coming home, isn't it? And when I was looking to buy my own first home...well, that's another story.

The writing is sweet and the illustrations charming. Highly recommended. It's a keeper, for sure.

One of Margaret Wise Brown's best books. Several are classics and all are good. I collected practically every one 30+ years ago to read to my son. They are fun to read out loud due to the poetic nature, and use the repetition of words, phrases, and ideas to help your Toddler feel he is reading. I do not think my son however read these books. We were unnaturally behind as parents and didn't teach him to read before Kindergarden. (I thought you learned to read in first grade, boy was I out of it.) Of course he's a great reader. He had the idea. The first time he read something was when he lit up like a light bulb and pointed to his movie poster and said "E.T." At that point I knew he had the connection between a shape and a sound and would do fine. Just true confession.

If teething baby playing with books, rather than being read to, get the hard, thick edition.
