Funny Picture Book

I have more picture books this week that have just made me and my family laugh.  Yes, even though my kids are technically not in the age range for these stories, they enjoy them just as much (sometimes even more) then they did when they were little kids.  They love to plop down in my office and go through my stack and can quickly discern the ones that will be family favorites.

We still joke about lines from our favorite picture books and the one I am profiling today has come up more than a few times in the last few weeks.  Hope it becomes apart our your family's vocabulary!

Title: Bunnies!!!

Author: Vean Atteberry

Target: Preschool - Kindergarten

What this book is about: 
Our monster is a friendly little guy who likes to say hello to the things around him: clouds, buterflies, and even bushes,  But when he spies the bunnies, his enthusiasm level is so overwhelming that he scares the living daylights out of what he loves the most.  He goes back to admiring the things around him, but his enthusiasm is dampened now that his beloved bunnies are gone.  They take pity on him and return, to his immense enthusiasm, but just as they seems to have found a happy medium of admiration, well, monster spies … Birdies!!!

Why I love this book: 
This book is the perfect example of how kids can get so excited that they actually scare off the thing that they are most longing to connect with.  Think family dog or cat that initially runs from the eager of embrace of a toddler!  

The book is perfect with only a few words scattered throughout.  The moster’s reaction and the way he says “bunnies” sets the tone.  Kids will be laughing as they see how overwhelming monster’s love of bunnies can be and of course, when he finally gets the bunnies on board, well here come the birdies!

Who this book is for: 
Perfect for toddlers as they learn to control their own emotions.  Also great for families who like to laugh!

Final thoughts: 
I giggled through this one like crazy and so did my big kids!
