A tender tale of loss and reunion, and the saving grace of a mother’s love, from Jeram (Daisy Dare, 1995, etc.). Bunny and his favorite companions, Little Duckling and Miss Mouse, play and romp under the indulgent gaze of Mommy Rabbit. When Bunny wanders off into the woods and discovers he is lost he begins to cry for his mother. “Oh, how could such a bad thing happen? Perhaps it was a game that went wrong. Perhaps Bunny ran too far on his own.” Before readers can become too alarmed, Mommy Rabbit is joyfully reunited with Bunny and he is safe in her warm embrace. Jeram addresses a common concern of toddlers in a comforting manner, while her whimsical drawings of Bunny and his friends are irresistible. A lighthearted yet compassionate tale. (Picture book. 2-5)
