What did you like about the book?  In this interactive and metafictional board book, the reader can help sweet Little Rabbit get ready for bedtime.  The reader claps their hands and Little Rabbit appears in his pajamas. Then they can fluff his pillow, tickle his ears, stroke his back, tuck him in bed, give him a goodnight kiss and finally turn off the light.  The illustrations depict the happy white bunny against a light blue background with red accents for the toothbrush, pajama bottoms, pillow and blanket. On the final double page spread, after the reader turns off the light, we see Little Rabbit sleeping on a page rendered in dark blue tones.  Children may want to share some of the experiences that Little Rabbit has as they get ready for bed themselves.  This is a sweet and fun bedtime book.
