PreS—It's early evening, but there's still time to play, so Daddy Bunny entices Baby Bunny to enjoy the remaining hours. The two chase each other, laughing and leaping in the lush, green woods. They whoop, and they swoop, and Owl calls out, "Whoo." Mouse plays peek-a-boo, and Bear joins in the fun as well. But after so much excitement and play, Baby Bunny whimpers, "Boo-hoooooo!" The youngster is very tired, so his father picks him up and carries him home, singing, "Hush-a-bye, Little One," as the sun sets over the meadow. In the last illustration, the pair is snuggled up for the night. "I love you, Little One," he says. "Sweet dreams and good night." The gentle, doe-eyed characters are rendered in soft-toned watercolors. Each page has very few words, which are printed in large type. This book will be suitable for one-on-one sharing and in collections where additional stories about fathers are desired.—Roxanne Burg, Orange County Public Library, CA

The story rides a light-hearted high until it is interrupted by a sudden whimper. As with most little ones, the excitement can quickly end when all energy is spent and bedtime calls. "Are you all worn out from that hullaballo?" asks the father. "Maybe it's time for a lullaballoo." A rose and yellow watercolor sunset spreads atop the page as Big Rabbit carries his Little One away and their friends wave goodnight. We are left with a sense of completion and comfort seeing these two furry creatures snuggle together for some sweet dreams, making it a wonderful bedtime book for us to settle into a snuggle with our own little ones.
These illustrations are fantastic, and I believe a child of any age would enjoy looking through this book. Fuge brings great expression and feeling to the story. The text, also, has the potential for added dramatic expression, using words that may tickle the ears of young children - whooped and swooped, splashed and sploshed, and snuffled and snuggled. The storyline is short and in a very simple rhyme, setting the ideal audience target to a younger crowd of around two to five years old.
ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations were created in watercolor. They are large and colorful for the younger ones, yet full of fascinating details along the way. I love how well the motion of each character was shown on each page as the owl swooped and the bear tumbled. I also love how the colors of the sky gradually grow into a sunset and then darkness for the final goodnight. The cuteness factor of the characters is a 10 out of 10!
REVIEW: This was such an enjoyable bed time book to read! The rhyming is lovely with a good pace. The story is short making it a perfect length for a bed time story for the littlest ones. Although this book has quite a bit of romping about, everything about it winds down from the activity of the animals to the darkening of the sky. And the story is very sweet, ending with a big cuddle from Daddy Rabbit.
