Rating: 1- 5 (5 is excellent or a Starred review) 4
Genre: Picture Book
What did you like about the book? Ten little bunnies play a game of hide-and-seek-with their friend fox in this sweet and energetic picture book. The rhyming text bounces along as the bunnies search for fox. Along the way the bunnies find some other forest animals, but don’t see fox hiding nearby. On each page there is a corresponding number of bunnies and creatures to match the count: “The search for fox has just begun. Everybunny count to ONE! We found some birds, away they flew. Everybunny count to TWO!” When the bunnies finally find fox, there is another surprise as inside fox’s den are ten fox cubs. The pencil and watercolor illustrations are as much fun as a game of hide-and-seek. This is a nice addition to counting books and will be enjoyed by readers who loved Everybunny Dance.
