You’re My Little Bunny

Claire Freedman, Author, Gavin Scott, Illustrator , illus. by Gavin Scott. Scholastic/Cartwheel $8.99 (20p) ISBN 978-0-545-20721-8

An exuberant bunny is excited to spend its day jumping around the fields, counting sheep, and exploring with its mother in this comforting rhyming book with a puffy cover. “I’m digging us a burrow now,/ a place to hide and share,” the rabbit explains. “Oh dear! I’ve made a muddy mess!/ The earth’s flown everywhere!” Scott’s fuzzy pastoral scenes include many tender moments between mother and child, as well as playful revelry with other animals. The low-key sweetness makes it well-suited to bedtime. Up to age 3. (Jan.)
