KIRKUS REVIEW

Pretty pictures and a bouncy text just skirt the teetering edge of cutesy-poo to offer a chant for family playtime. The baby of the title is a bunny, with a Mama bunny in poofy dresses and aprons, a Daddy bunny and an older-sibling bunny (their fluffy cotton tails are always visible despite their clothing). What they do with the baby are the usual baby things: hug and kiss, rock and bounce, feed, wash, dress and play. The pictures are in candy colors and friendly patterns: This bunny family inhabits a comfy domestic scene, the figures on a white background with the occasional accoutrements of table, high chair, etc. The baby bunny occupies many a solo page, in one adorable pose or another, usually opposite a patterned page of very brief text: “How do we play with the bunny? / How do we play with the baby?” And, of course, it all ends with “I love you!” (Picture book. 3-6)
