"Gentle, sweet illustrations perfectly match the positive message about families. . . . Although each child is different, Mommy Rabbit loves them all the same, deeply and unconditionally." —CHILDREN'S LITERATURE

"All together now!" Mommy Rabbit says, and Bunny, Little Duckling, and Miss Mouse sing their little Honeys song. Each of them finds a special meaning in this song—which reminds them of how much they are loved and of how, all together, they are a family. From Anita Jeram, illustrator of GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU by Sam McBratney and author-illustrator of BUNNY, MY HONEY, comes an endearing story that will delight and comfort little readers as it reveals how this unique family came together.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Jeram goes back on location with the characters first introduced in Bunny My Honey for a dulcet sequel that relates how Mommy Rabbit and her little "Honeys"--Bunny, Little Duckling and Miss Mouse--became a family. Played out to the refrain of their favorite song ("We're the little Honeys./ A little Honey is sweet./ Quack quack, squeak squeak,/ Thump your great big feet!"), the story line introduces each member of the trio as their verse and advent into the family is explained. "Quack quack" for instance, is Little Duckling's cue: "Its special meaning is, I'm yellow and fluffy and good at splashing and sploshing." A host of jolly antics follows, including the boisterous "Thump-Your-Great-Big-Feet game." If the territory here has been well-mapped elsewhere, Jeram's subtle emphasis on the idea that families are made, not born ("Even if I don't look like a bunny, Mommy Rabbit's still my mommy just the same") gives the material a fresh spin. Lively language ("squirly-twirly," "itchy-twitchy") and gentle repetition stoke the read-aloud engine, and Jeram's watercolors are as pleasurable as ever. Ages 3-up. (Jan.)

Families are unique. Mommy Rabbit's family consists of Bunny, Little Duckling, and Miss Mouse. The siblings each have their own special talent, which the others admire and appreciate. But they also have something in common--great big feet! So, of course, they play the "Thump Your Great Big Feet Game" all the time. Mommy Rabbit calls all her children the "little Honeys." Gentle, sweet illustrations perfectly match the positive message about families that the text conveys. Although each child is different, Mommy Rabbit loves them all the same, deeply and unconditionally. 1999, Candlewick Press, Ages 2 to 5, $13.99. Reviewer: Jeanne K. Pettenati
