Bunny Books !

Spring is the perfect time read books with bunnies in them, whether the Easter bunny visits your house or not these books will bring a little springtime into your house.
“Ten Little Rabbits” by Virginia Grossman is a really beautiful and cozy counting book. The reader follows Native American rabbits from1 who is traveling on the plain to 10 all asleep in their tee pees . My son loved the illustrations by Sylvia Long and after reading it wanted to play hide and seek just like the rabbits in the book.


” My Friend Rabbit “ by Eric Rohmann is a cute book with award winning illustrations that follows a mouse and a rabbit who remain friends despite the rabbit’s uncanny ability to get into trouble. The little rabbit means well and his heart is true, the limited text and descriptive illustrations make this book great for a wide range of age groups and my son loved the Rhino!

” That’s not my bunny, it’s tail is too fluffy!” by Fiona Watt carries on the theme of the art project , exploring the sense of touch with all different textures. Great for the under 2 crowd!


Knuffle Bunny” by Mo Willems is hilarious and heartwarming all at the same time. The story is about a lost bunny, and a dad that can’t quite understand what his toddler is trying to “say” to him. Luckily the mom speaks ” toddler” and dad gets to be a hero by reuniting his daughter with her beloved bunny.



“Bunny’s Noisy Book” by Margaret Wise Brown is a sweet book about a little bunny and all the sounds he hears throughout his day. As the little bunny hops from sun up to sundown you travel with him to experience the sounds and sights of a perfect spring day. The illustrations by Lisa McCue are are rich and the bunnies are so cute . My son loved the pictures but wasn’t too into the story, I think that is just a matter of age, and I would recommend this book for sure.

“Runaway Bunny” by Margaret Wise Brown I am trying to find the right way to say how much I dislike this book I know many love it but I just can’t get on board. A few years ago my assistant teacher and I used to call it “Run bunny run!” because this poor bunny is just trying to get some space from his mom. I know that some people adore this book and think that the sentiment of security is the one to focus on but I can’t write that I love it when I don’t.


” Goodnight Moon” by Margaret Wise Brown is a classic for a reason. My son has loved it since day one and it really does a great job of calming before bed, like all great bedtime stories should. As a teacher I hated this book probably because it’s not a great book for groups I admit I was wrong, this is a gem !

    My daughter has most of these books. Knuffle Bunny Too has been released and just as funny.

    She pointed out to me that the “Pigeon” is in all the Mo Willem stories. Have fun finding him.

    Love your blog.

    Goodnight Moon is a book my girl has loved since she was an infant. There were a few books she didn’t fuss during and this was one (another, Brown Bear, brown Bear What do You See). I, too, didn’t like it at first, but grew to love reading it to my daughter. We haven’t picked it up for awhile – she now likes big books – but I think I will pull it out today.

    Goodnight Moon is a lovely book. We have Knuffle Bunny on our wishlist as we love Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus.

    I love the Pigeon books too, the absurdity of Pigeon doing all those things and being so jaded and sarcastic is hilarious.

    One of our all time favorite picture books is a bunny book. Check out Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! by Candace Fleming.

    Great group of books! I just wanted to tell you since I discovered your blog, I have done a craft/learning project, everyday with my little girl. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I never understood the fuss over Goodnight Moon until I had kids of my own. It’s the ultimate bedtime book :-)

    I have the funniest and cutest picture of me and my son reading “Bunny noisy book” :)

    I felt the same with Goodnight Moon. Maybe I should reread it, thanks for the idea!
