    One thought on “Here Is Big Bunny”

    1. I read this one with my 5-year-old neighbor, Everleigh. She had a lot of fun while we were reading it, and gave the review, "It was great!" But she also deemed it "long," even though there aren't many words at all in it, because "the pictures were long."Kids will have fun looking for the bunny on each page and trying to figure out why he's so big.Note: I received an unbound galley of this book from the publisher at ALA Midwinter 2016.

    2. Big Bunny is very, very big, so big that glimpses of him and his various body parts can be seen by anyone inside the town museum, toy store, library or even the construction site. Young readers will want to pay attention as they look at each page to see if they can spot some part of Big Bunny, and then when they reach the book's final page, they can see how everything adds up to make sense. The illustrations of this high-flying rabbit were drawn in ink and then colored with watercolor, gouache, [...]

    3. There's an ear. There's an eye. There's a foot. Bits of a big big bunny are glimpsed around buildings and through windows. The reader finally sees the entire bunny only to discover that the town is not under siege but that the bunny is a giant balloon, part of a parade. This is an extremely simple story with colorful, detailed illustrations. Very young children should enjoy the simple mystery and kid-friendly pictures.

    4. This colorfully rendered picturebook builds a Big Bunny! With a simple sentence on each page, readers search and find various body parts of Big Bunny. But beware--it will require a second read if you don't know what you are looking for the first time! Rendered in gouache and acrylics on hot pressed watercolor paper, the colors and details are dynamic and bright.

    5. I love when I find books that are great for new readers. HERE IS BIG BUNNY uses 20 repeating words to create an amazing story about a city full of animals. The colors and vibrancy of the illustrations are such a fun way to journey through the story. There is so much to see to engage the reader. I love that it is an early reader, but has the feel of a full blown picture book. 5 stars

    6. Did not like this; the cute illustrations had sooo much going on that the point of the story was lost. Took me a few pages to even figure it out/find the object as it was so not direct. For the target age group I feel like this would be just a HUGE miss unless you want to find another nose/face/tail, etc. The main point is just NOT there. The ending was anti-climatic and dumb.

    7. I just didn't get this book where pictures of animals out and about in a town are shown and a body part is named. Ie here is a hand and you can see animals with that part. Ends with a giant bunny.

    8. Piece by piece, parts of the body are introduced on each page. Lots of pictures give lots of opportunities for little ones to identify the body parts on all the animals shown. Noses, eyes, feet, and tails pretty soon we see the big bunny balloon outside the window in a big parade.

    9. I really like the idea of slowly revealing one part of the giant bunny at a time, but the design is too busy for beginning readers -- the words need more empty space around them.

    10. I was unenthused. Also, confused about how the book worked even after reading the description initially. Shame on me for not reading the back in the first place, but whatever.

    11. Different parts of a bunny, but never the entire bunny, is seen in illustrations for readers to find.A fun story and game in one.

    12. As in Steve Henry's "Cat Got A Lot", there is so much to look at in these illustrations and talk about as your child reads.

    13. I'm probably the slow one, but I didn't make the connection between the title and the text initially and so when it dawned on me whose body parts the book was referring to, I was delighted.
