Big Bunnyby Colleen Rand
Synopses & Reviews
At first Big Bunny loves being big, taking the other little Easter bunnies for rides on her back throughout the countryside. When she accidentally breaks some of the Easter eggs she is helping decorate, she begins to feel clumsy and frustrated by her tremendous size. Happily, her little bunny friends show her how to help with their Easter tasks in a way only she can. Young readers will relate to Big Bunny's feelings of being left out, and they will cheer as she and her friends join together in their Easter bunny circle.
"Although Big Bunny was 'born in the spring along with all the other Easter Bunnies,' she grows to a gigantic size and accidentally breaks Easter eggs and baskets. Far from ostracizing her, the other little bunnies gather together to find Big Bunny when she runs away, and their plan to include Big Bunny in their Easter egg — delivery provides a satisfying ending. Flat, earth-toned areas of color, repeating forms, and decorative outlines result in compositions that unexpectedly recall Hopi art. Rand's pictures portray a world removed from modernity and close to nature; an original and rewarding Easter tale. Ages 3 — 5. (Jan.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
