What did you like about the book? In a board book with a soft padded cover and rounded edges, a Mommy Bunny gets her little one ready for bed. The rhyming text covers all the bedtime rituals from bath time to story time. The book ends with the reassurance : “Hush-a-bye, Bunny. We’re never apart. Wherever you are, you are here in my heart. Hush-a-bye, Bunny. The moon is now bright. I’ll love you forever, my bunny. Good night.” The pastel-toned illustrations rendered in ink and gouache are soothing and sweet. A lovely addition to bedtime stories for babies and toddlers.
