Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Stained with applesauce and chocolate milk, frayed by chewing and worn to its stuffing, a beloved toy bunny is overdue for a bath. ``Don't worry,'' Micah encourages his go-everywhere pal; ``I've had lots of baths.'' But the rabbit does not come clean, so Mama suggests a trip to the toy store for a replacement. Faced with the profusion of possible substitutes, Micah balks: ``I don't want a new rabbit, thank you.'' He then applies some irrefutable child logic to the situation, and the three return home renewed. Moore's colored-pencil and watercolor illustrations playfully and tenderly accompany Oppenheim's text as it moves from joviality to disquieted attachment to strengthened affection. A winsome tale of love remaining love in spite of dirt and grime. Ages 2-5. (Jan.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-A sweet, simple tale about a boy and his favorite stuffed toy. Bunny Rabbit has been through the proverbial mill, so Micah's mother suggests that they give it a bath. But after it has been scrubbed and dried, the beloved animal still looks a mess. ``It is time, Micah, to buy a new rabbit,'' says mom. They go to the toy store, and a double-page spread shows myriad stuffed animals from which Micah might choose. (But astute readers will know that he never had any intention of replacing his well-worn friend.) In a double-page closeup picture, when he tells his mother that he doesn't want a new bunny, she touches his forehead and offers a milk shake instead. Walking home, they discuss the similarities between a messy Bunny Rabbit and a messy boy-both of whom are infinitely lovable. The vibrant, detailed colored-pencil and watercolor illustrations are dominated by greens and purples, with lots of interesting flecks of color scattered about. A welcome addition on a popular topic.-Lynn Cockett, Nutley Public Library, NJ
