Author Andrew Larsen captures well the tenderness most children feel for small animals, while the rounded shapes of Kate Endle’s collage illustrations prove expressive and reassuring.

Children's Literature - Leah Hanson
Bella adores the bunny at her preschool. Its soft fluffy fur, tickly nose, and cozy hutch make it a wonderful friend. She draws pictures of the bunny and even has a special sweater that looks like a white bunny! One day, Bella can't find her sweater; when she gets to school, she can't find the bunny either. The children work together searching and seeking for their classroom pet. Not until Bella notices the quiet "fluff, fluff, fluff" of a bunny sleeping, do they discover the bunny under a couch, curled up in Bella's sweater. This simple tale of lost and found illustrates the worry young children can feel when they lose beloved pets and the joy that comes from finding them again. Used in a preschool classroom, it is an excellent example of working together and showing compassion. The bright, crisply drawn illustrations and paper collages provide ample visual appeal for even the youngest readers.
School Library Journal

PreS - K - Bella loves several things-her sweaters knitted by her grandmother, her play school, and, most fervently, the soft white rabbit that lives there. For Bella's birthday, Nonna makes her the best sweater of all-one that is soft, furry, and white, just like the rabbit she loves. One day, she leaves the sweater at school. It is missing when she goes to get it, and so is the rabbit. Like most things in the preschool world, this mystery is solved satisfactorily, and with only a little drama. The text is comforting and realistic without being overwhelming. Endle's illustrations depict nursery school as a great place, with smiling, helpful youngsters and a welcoming, interesting room. The textured paper in the collages adds to the depth of the art. Pastel colors also create comfort in a potentially unfamiliar situation. This cozy story will have wide appeal.-Susan E. Murray, Glendale Public Library, AZ
