KIRKUS REVIEW

First published in 1949, this looks and reads just like its predecessor Goodnight, Moon, with a series of cozy domestic scenes featuring a bunny family matched to childlike rhymes, some of which—“My dog. / Daddy’s dog. / Daddy’s dog / Once caught a frog”—is engaging silly talk, more about sound than meaning. Here the young narrator articulates the concepts of “mine,” “yours,” and “ours,” while cataloguing familiar sights and possessions, so this may help children (or adults, for that matter) who don’t quite have those distinctions clear yet. One scene showing Father, Mother, and Child sharing the bathroom may explain why the original was allowed to pass out of print, but these days it shouldn’t raise any eyebrows. (Picture book. 3-6)
