Cowboy bunnies wake at sunrise and off they go, riding their ponies, roping cattle, mending fences, and tossing hay. When evening falls, they gather round the campfire to feast and play their fiddles. But soon cowboy bunnies are rubbing their sleepy eyes, and it's time to head home, where mamas sing sweet lullabies, and papas softly harmonize.

Close your eyes and imagine the best things about cowboys. As your imagination soars, picture bunnies in those cowboy hats, eating campfire food, riding on delightful ponies in the colorful west. Loomis' rhyming story flows like a campfire song, sparking giggles and snickers. Eitan's paintings on wooden slats captivate and warm your insides.

Loomis' rhyming story flows like a campfire song, sparking giggles and snickers. Eitan's paintings on wooden slats captivate and warm your insides. Now available in a board book format this little book is enjoyable but does loose something in the visuals. Sometimes the small format just isn't appropriate. 2004 (orig. 1997), Putman, Ages 2 to 6.

PreS-Gr 1Rabbits on the range doesn't mean what's for dinner. These furry critters are cowboys who "Start at sunup/Work all day/Roping cows/Tossing hay." Loomis continues their adventures with whooping and hollering in easy, metered, a-b-c-b rhyme-scheme quatrains. The bunnies go the cowboy way all day, and then when evening comes, they kiss their Mamas and say good night. This is a rollicking addition to the genre of bedtime reading for the very young, surely destined to become a favorite. Eitan's gouache illustrations are painted on plywood slats often resembling fence pickets. The wood grain clearly shows through, adding texture and interest to the areas where paint is either laid on thick or thinly brushed. This novelty can also be extended into art classrooms as a model, thus stretching the age group that will enjoy this book.Ruth Semrau, formerly at Lovejoy School, Allen, TX

My niece, who is three years old, checked this book out of the library where we live. She brought it for my mother, her grandmother, to read to her. As my mother read, my niece was following along and telling the story back to my mother. It is a delightful reading with children and a quick read to keep them occupied.
