I have a four-year-old that I can’t wait to read this story to. It’s great to have stories that reinforce our hope for our daughter—that she’ll love reading, being creative, and one day, writing. My daughter loved Margaret’s previous book, Marie and Mr. Bee, and I know she’ll love this one as well. I’ll surprise her with it, when she gets back from visiting grandparents.
Author Margaret Welwood goes beyond story and pictures to facilitate the development of children's word skills.Her use of rhyme helps young readers discover and pronounce new words. And because each word is used to develop Bunny's story, children can become word detectives, figuring out the meaning of new words by using the story and pictures. Later, in some formal reading class, a teacher will tell them they are "using context clues." For now, children will enjoy solving the puzzle all on their own.
What stands out most to me about Welwood's new release, however, is her introduction to the idea of children writing their own books. By describing with words and also illustrating Bunny's book-making process, the author gives readers a detailed how-to. They can see what materials Bunny uses, hear the story he makes up, and then imitate his process. Bunny smiles as he works, displays great "pride of authorship," and delights at the reaction of his parents.
Bunny's Own Storybook will entertain its readers while it expands their word skills. But its big bonus offering is INSPIRATION. Well done!
I think young readers imaginations will be sparked when they read Little Bunny’s Own Storybook, which tells the story of a bunny that loves to read. Everyday he goes to the library to find a new book to read. But one day, to his dismay, the library is closed. As he goes home nothing else sound good to do. He wants to read. But then, he has an idea. Perhaps, he could make up his own story.
The illustrations by Nataly Vits are precious and will touch a child’s heart. After reading this story, young readers may be inspired to write their story and draw pictures.
I recommend Little Bunny’s Own Storybook by Margaret Welwood. Parents, be forewarned, you may want to have paper and pencils and crayons on hand in case your little one wants to try their hand at writing the very own story.
I would like to thank Margaret Welwood for the opportunity to read Little Bunny’s Own Storybook. This book is recommended for ages 3-8.
Little Bunny just loved getting immersed into the stories, he could meet animals from all over the world, face imaginary dangers, see people doing amazing jobs, and have great adventures all within the pages of a book.
However one day the library is closed, and poor Little Bunny is so sad. What can he do now, there is nothing which can compare to reading his stories, or is there…
What Little Bunny discovers is that you can make your own worlds if you try, with dramas, adventures, fun and danger in them, all you have to have is imagination, and pens, pencils, and paper of course. Also, when you have made up your own story you can read it to others for them to enjoy.
What a fantastic tool this book is for teachers and parents enabling them to inspire their children’s creativity, whatever the reading or writing ability of the child. I read this with my grandson and not only did we have great fun looking at the illustrations, but he was inspired into making up his own little story and enjoyed illustrating it too!
I would highly recommend this children’s book, not only for the hours of fun which can be had creating a story and illustrating it, but also because in doing so you are not only widening the child’s talents, but also giving them a mechanism for escape into another world.
I was given a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Little Bunny loves story time with his parents, and after making his own storybook to share with them, he gives simple writing prompts to inspire the boys and girls who’ve been reading about him.
Adults, prepare to be entertained by your children’s ideas—and perhaps to help with spelling and drawing.
The story is told in rhyming verse. I found the rhythm a bit awkward in a few places, but I’m sure repeated readings to a child would teach me which syllables to emphasize. The art work is very cute, and I especially appreciated Little Bunny’s carrot desk lamp.
What I like most about this story is that not only does it provide a gentle read for children, it invites them to explore their own creativity. Who knows where that could lead them?
