Children's LiteraturePish posh to ordinary costume rabbit ears. Author Sean Bryan imagines life with a real bunny on one's head. His nameless boy protagonist wakes one morning to discover just that, and he reveals a few possible scenarios in a day with a hare on your hair. In very simple rhyme, the bunny on the head, is, predictably, dubbed Fred. Together boy and bunny discover, among other things, that sandwiches can be spread, languages can be said, and trips can be taken on a bobsled or moped. Alas, Bryan does not approach the genius of Dr. Seuss. The real appeal in Bryan's book just might be in encouraging young audiences to recognize rhyme and to think of their own additional possibilities, in verse, for the boy and Fred. It could be a springboard for a quiet routine that includes this book and ends with rhyming schemes of one's own making. The uncomplicated, two-color line illustrations in soft blue and yellow by Tom Murphy are a pleasant support. 2005, Arcade Publishing, Ages 2 to 5.
