Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Nature's rainbow of colors displays its full radiance in this standalone sequel to Lisa McCue's Quiet Bunny! Another joyous bunny story just in time for Easter.

Publishers Weekly
In this follow-up to Quiet Bunny, the fluffy rabbit loves spring colors so much that he decides to brighten up his coat, with each wardrobe change ending in a small disaster. When he covers himself in honey and dandelions to become yellow, bees come a'buzzing. Wearing a floppy, green lily pad on his head causes him to stumble, and the blueberry juice he squeezes onto his fur washes off in a spring shower. As in the previous book, it's up to a wise owl to persuade Quiet Bunny to embrace his natural gifts. Moments of gentle humor keep McCue's hyperbucolic world from feeling cloying. Ages 4–6. (Mar.)
From the Publisher
Praise for Lisa McCue's Quiet Bunny
"The book is a natural read-aloud, allowing kids to join in the telling of the story" -School Library Journal

“The author's idyllic setting and canny sense of s tory-time dynamics should make this one a favorite.” - Publishers Weekly

School Library Journal
PreS-K—This treacly, message-driven picture book will likely please undemanding fans of cuteness but leave more-discerning readers disappointed. It is spring and Quiet Bunny decides that his brown-and-white fur is the color of winter. He wants to be the color of spring, so he turns yellow by covering himself with honey and then dandelions but falls into a stream that washes him clean. He then becomes green, blue, and red in turn, using lily pads, blueberries, and red mud. The mud hardens and he sadly washes it off in a stream, where the proverbially wise old owl (in a gatefold) tells him, "That is why the spring forest is beautiful….We are all different colors, and we are all beautiful!" The pedestrian text is overly long for the audience, and the didactic message lacks subtlety. The art, with a very fluffy bunny and bright, candy-colored flowers, has the look and feel of a greeting card. The pacing, with the use of spot art and full-bleed spreads, moves the story along nicely, although the gatefold is unnecessary and unlikely to hold up. On the whole, this is an unexceptional addition to the glut of books about colors.—Amy Lilien-Harper, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT
Kirkus Reviews
This is the second offering in a new series about the titular rabbit, following a previous exploration of animal sounds (Quiet Bunny, 2009). In this effort, Quiet Bunny finds out about the colors of the springtime and decides he doesn't want to be a plain brown-and-white rabbit any longer. He tries to turn himself yellow with honey and flower blossoms, green with lily pads, blue with blueberries and so on. A wise owl intervenes and points out that each animal has its individual color and that is what makes the forest beautiful. "We are all different colors, and we are all beautiful!" It's the old "be yourself" theme that has been told so many times and in so many ways, and this version really doesn't add anything new to the canon. The stereotypically wise owl solves the existential dilemma with a simple statement rather than allowing Quiet Bunny to come to the conclusion on his own, and the exploration is never anything more than superficial. McCue's illustrations combine undeniably cute and cuddly animals with lovely flowers, but it's all a greeting-card prettiness that comes off as saccharine. But since she is a prolific artist with many fans, Quiet Bunny will probably quietly move on to the next entry in his series. (Picture book. 3-5)

    Adorable book, I have bought them for all my neices and nephews!

    Kudos to Lisa McCue! Her artwork literally hops off the page and dazzles us with color and cuteness. The detail of this Spring time childrens book is amazing. I know of no other books that I want to touch the pages thinking maybe it will actually be as soft as it looks! Keep up the good work! We love your books Ms. McCue!

    A Must Have

    My granddaughter loves Ms McCue's books. They are so life like that she tries to touch the animals. Another plus is that this book has pull out pages so it comes more to life for her. Always a sweet story with a lesson. She loved the first "Quiet Bunny" book so much that we had to have another to read over and over again.

    Love this book!!!

    I ordered this book for my 4 year old daughter for Easter. I was so excited when I got it, I couldn't wait. We read the story last night and it was an instant hit with both of us. My daughter loved it so much, I am back ordering the first Quiet Bunny Book for Easter.

    Sweet, silly and fun to read

    My son loves this story. He giggles every time Quiet bunny kerr-splashes into the stream, tumbles down the hill, or gets caught in the rain. But his favorite is when the little bunny is covered in mud and the sun turns it dry and hard so he can hardly move.
    A wonderful story and a sweet message.

    If I could pick the Caldecott book this year Quiet Bunny's many colors would win!

    My son's favorite book

    I can not leave home with out this book my son takes it everywhere with him. It is the book he chooses eveynight to read before bed! We sit and he goes through all the sounds and makes up stories about all the animals. They have become his friends. Someone should make a childrens show about quite bunny he could help so many kids with their own personal challenges. Bravo.

    Another Must Have Book by Lisa McCue

    Lisa McCue has done it again, with her adorable Quiet Bunny and his enchanting tales. Quiet Bunny's Many Colors is a must have for your child. Her artwork is fantastic. You and your children will love the vibrant colors and adorable critters. Quiet Bunny is so loved by my children. If you have not see the new plushy toy of Quiet Bunny, look for it. It is a wonderful addition to the books. I highly recommend Lisa McCue's New Quiet Bunny book called, Many Colors.

    A wonderful addition to every child's personal library!

    This beautifully written and illustrated treasure deserves a place in the library of every child! Once again we all learn a powerful lesson about the value and beauty of each one of us. Young children learn to view themselves and others as valid contributors to their world. As a professional who works with children, I highly recommend this work of art from an educational stand point as well as an upbeat, colorful visual gift. A truly wonderful sequel to the best seller 'Quiet Bunny'!

    My nearly 2 year old son received this special book as a gift fr

    My nearly 2 year old son received this special book as a gift from my parents.  My Dad selected it for him.  It is stunningly enchanting!  My son has a VERY short attention span, but he will sit for this whole story over and over and LOVES it.  The illustrations are vibrant and he enjoys exploring the details.  In fact, the pictures are so real to him, he tries to eat the blueberries right off a page and pick the flowers!  He has said more new words while we read this book together than any other story or play experience we have had.  There is no question that book belongs in early childhood classrooms.  I'd love to see it in board book format.  What a treasure.
