Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This bunny family begins their day at eight in the morning when Father Rabbit calls his brood to breakfast. For the next twelve hours, the bunnies get dressed, perform chores, garden, have a picnic lunch, nap, play, and eat supper until their busy day ends at eight in the evening. Like Walton's other concept titles (So Many Bunnies: A Bedtime ABC and Counting Book; One More Bunny: Adding from One to Ten), the text is told in verse. Brisk quatrains hop from one hourly activity to the next, though there are occasional lapses in meter. Some couplets are weakened with near-rhymes ("drawer" with "four") and repetitious word choices ("heaven" is used to rhyme with "eleven" and "seven"). Toddlers learning to tell time will enjoy following the young bunnies in Miglio's detailed watercolor paintings and will eagerly search for the clock or watch on each double-spread. The rabbit motif found in the cottage furnishings further enhances the cozy theme. Children will find that any time is a good time to read this book. 2002, HarperCollins,

School Library Journal
PreS-This story actually begins on the endpapers, long before breakfast. Father Rabbit and one of his bunnies are winding up a clock in the evening. The following pages show Mother Rabbit, early in the morning, enjoying what readers will discover is a rare moment of peace. Soon she wakes her five youngsters and the day begins. During the next 12 hours, the parents shepherd their bunnies through their daily routines and activities. Each spread is filled with humor and detail, and children will want to pore over the pictures. The inclusion of the hour of the day in each accompanying four-line stanza is casual and unforced. In fact, the rhythmic text doesn't miss a beat. In each illustration, a clock corresponding to the hour mentioned in the verse is depicted quite naturally-for example, a child playing with a pocket watch at lunch or a garden clock mounted on a wall. The tale comes full circle in the final scene with the parents relaxing with a cup of tea at the end of the eventful day. A book to be enjoyed at home and at preschool.-Susan Marie Pitard, formerly at Weezie Library for Children, Nantucket Atheneum, MA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A day in the life of Walton's bunny family helps young readers grasp the concept of time. From daybreak to twilight, Mother and Father Rabbit faithfully announce the hour as they hustle their offspring from one activity to another. The suitably bouncy verses convey both the time and activity to readers in rhyming couplets. Breakfast, preparing for the day, and chores comprise the morning hours-after that, it's lunch and playtime. A perky tempo keeps reader's interest engaged: " ‘Ready, set? Now bunnies run!' / Mother Rabbit says at one. / ‘Race and chase and bounce a bit. / That will keep my bunnies fit.' " Oversized, two-paged, full-bleed illustrations provide continuity, tying the segments of the tale together. Meticulously drawn pictures depict the bunnies busily engaged in familiar activities, making crafts in the afternoon hours, setting the dinner table, and snuggling in for a bedtime tale at day's end. A clock indicating the appropriate time is neatly woven into each illustration, challenging readers to seek and find each timepiece in the spreads. However, both the placement of the clocks and the clarity on the clock faces in several pictures makes this tale more appropriate for exploring the notion of time rather than providing instruction on how to tell time. Altogether, a pleasing addition to Walton's (So Many Bunnies, 1998, etc.) bunny family series. (Picture book. 3-5)
