What did you like about the book?  A bunch of springtime farm and woodland animals are looking for a bunny.  The book describes the attributes of the bunny they seek: “We’re seeking a bunny and everyone knows/Your ears must be long/ With a twitchy pink nose.”  Readers will know that the bunny they seek is he Easter bunny.  The illustrations in bright spring colors are full of fun.  Animals include a chick, lambs, turtles, a donkey and a deer.  This book is  sure to appeal to babies and toddlers.

Anything you didn’t like about it?  Although the grammar is choppy at times, the bright candy colored illustrations make this a hit.
