KIRKUS REVIEW

A rabbit family enjoys various spring activities in simple verse and double-page scenes.

Anthropomorphized mom, dad and toddler bunny garden, clean and play in an idealized rural setting. Five lines of stiff verse with the same meter accompany nearly every page: “Birds fly by. / Birds in sky. / Chirp and peep. / Young ones sleep. / It’s nesting time.” The pastel illustrations, likely created digitally, have a deliberately hazy look and a calculatedly cute feel. Sparkling glitter is embedded into details of the art and provides a tactile emphasis on flowers, rainbows, butterflies and more.

An overly sweet confection with unnecessary frosting. (Board book. 18 mos.-3)
