KIRKUS REVIEW

Little Bunny dabbles in petty larceny.

Little Bunny sees his mother’s purse open on the table. He wants the pennies that are inside. After quickly taking them, Little Bunny continues on, taking a toy from his friend, who’s reading and unaware, and a sweet from the store. It doesn’t take long for his conscience to catch up with him, and Little Bunny tells Mama about his thefts. This board book and the concurrently published Uh-Oh, Bunny tackle the wrongs little ones can do and the measures it takes to correct them. Each board book ends with a Bible verse, specifically from Ephesians: in the case of this book, it’s “If a person is stealing, he must stop stealing,” and for the other it’s “Tell each other the truth.” The book is calmly illustrated, with somber colors and wispy lines. The repetition, Greek chorus–like, of “No, no, Bunny” is a bit unfortunate. Some readers may feel as though they’re punishing the cuddly little one. Adults may choose to articulate the repeated admonishment as “Wait, wait, Bunny,” or “Think, think, Bunny” instead.

A cute morality tale that may be especially appealing for Christian households. (Board book. 2-3)
