Knuffle Bunny and Knuffle Bunny Too Children's Book Review.
Knuffle Bunny - A Must Read for All Families With Toddlers and Preschoolers.
What's The Book Without The Knuffle Bunny?
The title alone, Knuffle Bunny and Knuffle Bunny Too, is enough to catch the eye of the curious browser.
I'm an avid fan of the six time Emmy Award winning, Caldecott Honoree, children's book author Mo WIllems, and though I'm very much aware of his Pigeon book series, today was my first introduction to Knuffle Bunny and its subsequent follow up, Knuffle Bunny Too.
Charming and altogether hilarious, Knuffle Bunny is a true-to-life story about a little girl named Trixie, her father, and her favorite stuffed bunny - endearingly called Knuffle Bunny - who take a quick trip to their neighborhood Laundromat.
Although the trip to the Laundromat and the time spent there goes off without a hitch, it's what gets left behind that causes all sorts of problems.
Since Trixie hasn't begun talking yet, the entire way home she shows just how unhappy she is about this turn of events.
Exhausted and frustrated; it isn't until Trixie and her father make it home that Dad realizes Trixie has left somebunny behind.
This realization takes the story to another level as Trixie, Mom, and Dad make a mad dash back to the Laundromat where another scenario takes shape.
Knuffle Bunny Too, fast-forwards to a incessant talking, preschool attending Trixie, and her constant and loyal companion, Knuffle Bunny.
Excited by the prospect of sharing her "one-of-a-kind" stuffed rabbit with her preschool pals, Trixie talks nonstop until she receives the shock of her young life - Knuffle Bunny just might not be as original as she thought!
These turn of events ignite a domino effect which leads to a huge mix up, an extremely late-night phone call, and an unexpected middle-of-the-night exchange.
Both books combine stunning photographs of Brooklyn, New York, with expressive cartoon drawings, and a hilarious story line that any parent with toddlers and preschoolers can relate to.
A perfect read for kids ages 2-5 (Knuffle Bunny) and ages 3-6 (Knuffle Bunny Too), these children's books show young and older readers alike the lengths Moms, Dads, and kids will go through for the love of their favorite, one-of-a-kind, companions.
