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.
