Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lisa Colozza Cocca
This anthropomorphic tale of a rabbit family centers on the love of a grandmother for her new grandchild. Told in simple rhyme, some a bit forced, the brief story shows the grandmother rabbit and the young bunny walking, talking, playing, and exploring together. Told from the grandmother rabbit's point-of-view, the text expresses the grandmother's infinite love for the bunny. The soft, pastel illustrations, and many double page spreads are endearing and show the rabbits in their natural domain. The illustrations tell a story and may encourage little ones to develop their own tale to accompany the art. There is a gift plate in the beginning of the book. A two-page spread in the back gives space for a grandparent to write a letter to their grandchild and provides a space for a photograph of the child and grandmother. Designed as a gift book and clearly marketed to grandmothers, this book is more suited for a personal memento than as a classroom or library read. Reviewer: Lisa Colozza Cocca
School Library Journal
PreS-K—While it is a truism that nothing beats the love of a grandparent for a grandchild, it is usually something that children themselves take for granted. This book, clearly aimed at the grandparent market, ensures that this love is front and center. Using simple rhymes, a grandmother rabbit celebrates her love and affection for her baby's baby in a slightly over-the-top paean to the little bunny. The lush, full-color pastel watercolors feature cozy scenes focusing on the anthropomorphized family members and are framed by flowers, butterflies, and fields of green. The last three pages have spaces for a child's name, photos, and a letter from the grandma to her grandchild, making this more of a gift book than a library purchase.—Marge Loch-Wouters, La Crosse Public Library, WI
Kirkus Reviews
The arrival of a new grandchild is joyously celebrated in this grandmotherly ode to their new life together. Tenderhearted affection is displayed through the softly hued watercolors of furry, cuddly rabbits and is combined with gushing verse recited by one delighted grandmother bunny to her sweet and innocent grandbaby. "The moment I saw you, / I fell in love, / Honey, my bunny, / my sweet turtledove. // Wiggling and giggling, / you captured my heart. / I loved you so much, dear, / right from the start." Love at first sight deepens as the pages turn, becoming that special relationship of mutual devotion unique to a grandmother and grandchild. While this displays no shortage of greeting-card syrup in its sentiment, its gentleness will make for nice initial read-aloud sessions for the intended audience and an appropriately thoughtful gift from any new grandma to grandchild (as blank lines for inscription, a "special letter" to the grandchild and a picture of grandmother and grandchild attest). An unabashedly idealized but nevertheless wholehearted hymn to grandmotherhood (Picture book. 2-4)
