Description

The endearing siblings of Theo Heras' and Renné Benoit's Hat On, Hat Off and Baby Cakes return once more in a sweet celebration of bedtime. Humor, helpfulness, and heart combine as Baby's big sister helps to see him - and, of course, his stuffed bunny - through the nighttime routine from bath to bed. Little listeners will connect with familiar sensory language of warm, tickly water and blanket snuggles, and they will be able to enjoy it time and again in this study-format book with a padded cover, rounded corners, and extra-heavy paper. Preschoolers can chime in with Theo Heras' brief, descriptive text, and Renné Benoit's watercolor and digital art, full of big baby faces and warm pastel colours. Where's Bunny? will make bedtime a happy time for the whole family.

About Where's Bunny?

2019 Cooperative Children's Book Center Choices selection

2018 Reading Rockets "Summer Reading Guide" selection

"[T]he children are being lovingly supervised, but the visual centering of the children allows for fluid reading of the text....[R]eaders may well see a newly literate older sibling reading aloud to a younger one-an empowering possibility....A nicely child-centered iteration on a common theme."—Kirkus Reviews

"[A] sweet story....By using a warm color palette without strong contrasts, the watercolor-and-digital art suggests coziness, happiness, and familial love....VERDICT A soothing bedtime story perfect for one-on-one sharing with babies, toddlers, and preschoolers alike."—School Library Journal

"Humor, helpfulness, and heart combine as Baby's big sister helps to see him - and, of course, his stuffed bunny - through the nighttime routine from bath to bed....Where's Bunny? will make bedtime a happy time for the whole family and is unreservedly recommended for daycare center and preschool collections."—Midwest Book Review

"Told with sparse language, Where's Bunny? will appeal to the very young. Its soothing pace makes it an ideal bedtime book....The illustrations are simple, interesting, and cheerful...Refreshing, too, is the depiction of children of colour. Young children are sure to be soothed by the content, pace, and illustration of Where's Bunny? Highly Recommended."—CM Magazine

"Theo Heras makes her text simple and readable for those just learning to decipher books, and it is sweetly appropriate for a concept book about bedtime routines....Thankfully Theo Heras does more than just assert a concept. There is a story here, one of sibling affection and a young child's bond to his stuffed animal, that is elevated with Renné Benoit's artwork....Another invitation that is extended to readers comes by way of Pajama Press's unique picture book format for the very young...It has been a winner since its first use. More embraceable than the board books typical for the very young, these softly padded books make for a sweet tactile experience to reading."—CanLit for LittleCanadians

"This book is helpful with a bedtime checklist that could have parents of young children establishing their own bedtime routine."—Resource Links Magazine

"Bedtime books are a great way to introduce routine to children, and make getting ready for bed a pleasant time. The drawings here show happy and content children at each point in the routine to help with this message. I really think the drawings are so cute. I also liked that the book showed diversity without being about diversity. This book is a great choice for little ones."—Canadian Bookworm
