Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Karen Saxe
Little Bunny is getting very excited to start preschool. He and his papa mark off the days on their calendar, and we spend the summer with them doing this. We celebrate the Fourth of July, Little Bunny's August birthday, and spend time doing ordinary summertime activities. The first day at school proves to be slightly unnerving, and Little Bunny is frightened that his mama and papa won't come back for him. But, of course, Little Bunny loves his teacher, makes lots of friends, and altogether has a wonderful day. A good read for the end of the summer, or for the beginning preschooler.

PreS-K-Little Bunny, a.k.a. LB, will be entering preschool when summer's over. His father gives him a calendar so he can cross off the days until school begins. LB is apprehensive about the new experience and becomes even more so when his cousin Maxine lets him know what she thinks of school. LB tries to slow down the summer's passing but it flies by quickly and the big day arrives. Begrudgingly accepting the inevitable, the little bunny gets assurances from his parents that they will always come back for him, and he settles in, making a new friend. The author and illustrator, who collaborated on Dry Days, Wet Nights (Albert Whitman, 1994), which also features LB, prove to be an effective team. Parkinson's expressive watercolor- and-ink paintings nicely complement Boelt's lively writing. A first day at preschool can be traumatic for both children and parents. Like Edwina Riddell's My First Day at Preschool (Barrons, 1992) and Fred Rogers's Going to Day Care (Putnam, 1985; o.p.), this title will be soothing for all parties involved.-Tom S.
