Review: Knuffle Bunny Too by Mo Willems


Rating: 5/5
Grade: A-All ages



If any of you have somehow missed out on reading the Knuffle bunny books, you should definitely remedy the omission. This is one of the books that, as an adult, I can stand to read over and over again. And it is one of those that my children request again and again. The art work is wonderful, simple, childish painting set on a background of real black and white photos. The expressions on the faces are hilarious, which I think is one of the most important criteria in a children's book: can you feel the story, the emotions, through the pictures.

In Knuffle Bunny Too the little girl has grown up and is in preschool, but still as attached to her bunny as ever. When she brings her bunny to school, horror of horrors, another girl has a bunny that looks just like hers. They are both very upset by this, and arguing ensues, which leads to the teacher taking away the bunnies, and a hilarious mix-up with consequences all parents can relate to.
