Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cub knows all about the familiar world in the snow den where she was born. Whenand#160;she follows Mom out of their den, tumblingand#160;into the Arctic wilderness, she finds that the world under the wide blue sky is big, big, BIG! Itand#8217;s easy to be curious when thereand#8217;s so much to exploreand#8212;and when Mom is nearby. But when she thinks sheand#8217;s all alone, can Cub be brave? With spare, lyrical words and paintings that are both dramatic and intimate, Cuband#8217;s Big World tells a tender story of new experiences, homecoming, and the love between a parent and child.

Review:

"Dipping into the grassy, blossoming palette of his My Garden, Henkes depicts a bunny's spring day. His sequence salutes Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd's classic The Runaway Bunny, for this little white rabbit also has a good imagination. 'When he hopped through the high grass, he wondered what it would be like to be green,' and 'When he hopped by the fir trees, he wondered what it would be like to be tall.' Each time the rabbit ponders another way of life, a wordless spread follows, picturing him camouflaged, tree-height, or transformed into a stone bunny for an entire day. Spying a cat, the bunny darts home to nuzzle a mother rabbit (also reminiscent of Brown and Hurd's): 'he didn't wonder who loved him.' In Henkes's colored pencil and acrylic closeups of the young rabbit, a moss-green outline and typeface (rather than a neutral black or brown) suggest verdant meadows and warm forests. Cool pink, soft blue, and dandelion yellow wildflowers will remind some of an Easter basket. Sweet and soft, this picture book heralds a sunny spring. Ages 2 — 7. (Feb.)"
