Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“An endearing and humorous telling of the child-blankie bond.”
- Scholastic Parent & Child
Children's Literature - Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
Even youngsters who are not attached to a favorite blanket can understand how Small Bunny loves his Blue Blanket. He takes it everywhere; he needs it because it helps him go higher on the swing, paint the best pictures, read his books. One day his mother calls him in, saying that both he and his blanket need a bath. Small Bunny thinks his Blue Blanket is perfect just the way it is. But after he is washed and dried, his mother insists on putting the blanket in the washing machine. Small Bunny watches and waits impatiently for 107 minutes. "Good as new," his mother says. Small Bunny does not like "new." It takes a lot of swinging, painting, reading, and playing until Blue Blanket is "perfect" again. A black line depicts mother, child, and the very few objects needed for this simple tale. Pale blue paint is added for bits like bath water and mother's apron. Darker blue is used for the large letters of the text and of course the beloved blanket. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
School Library Journal
PreS-K—Small Bunny's blanket is his constant companion. It helps him soar on the swings, paint great pictures, and even read hard words. So when his mother announces that the blanket, along with its owner, needs a bath, Small Bunny understandably objects. Mommy prevails, however, and eventually returns Blue Blanket, washed, dried, and "good as new!" But new, according to Small Bunny, is definitely NOT good. Not to worry, though, because after hours of playing and painting and reading, it ends up "just the way it was before./Perfect." The blue motif is carried throughout, from the title script that swirls above Blue Blanket on the cover, to overlapping blue shapes on the endpapers, to the minimal text printed in blue. The childlike line drawings that appear on large expanses of white space are occasionally filled in with hints of pale blue in contrast to the darker hues emphasizing Blue Blanket's starring role on almost every page. There are humorous touches throughout, such as Small Bunny and Blanket hiding under the bed and a page of sequential drawings depicting the little fellow watching his blanket twirl in the washer. Pair this enjoyable story with Kim Lewis's Hooray for Harry (Candlewick, 2006), about another favorite blanket hung out to dry.—Marianne Saccardi, formerly at Norwalk Community College, CT
Publishers Weekly
Newcomer Feeney has a firm grasp of the less-is-more nature of picture-book storytelling. Small Bunny has two dots for eyes, two long loopy ears, and a scribble for a tail. His Blue Blanket is an amorphous slip of cutout blue tissue paper, and their story is as tightly written as ad copy. “Don’t worry,” says Mommy as she puts Small Bunny’s beloved Blue Blanket into the washing machine, “it will only take a minute.” “It actually took 107,” Feeney observes. “And Small Bunny watched Blue Blanket for every single one.” After Blue Bunny sweats it out in front of the dryer, he spends the rest of the story working to rid Blue Blanket of its freshly laundered smell, lying on it and bringing it to the beach until “Blue Blanket was just the way it was before. Perfect.” Airy movement is supplied by the shapes Feeney gives the blanket as it billows in the wind, trails behind Small Bunny, and lies crumpled in the floor beneath him. A fine dramatization of the classic childhood blanket drama, and a noteworthy debut. Ages 1–4. (June)
Kirkus Reviews
Remember clutching that beloved childhood object to your chest? Closing your eyes to breathe in a smell as familiar as your own skin, readying yourself for the steepest slide or the darkest night? Small Bunny finds just this kind of comfort in his blue blanket, soft with wear and dirt, but he worries some of its threadbare magic will wash away when mother does laundry. Appealingly elemental line drawings aptly describe a straightforward story about a child's simple love of a singularly special possession. Hints of pink highlight Small Bunny's ears and cotton tail, sweetening and softening the nearly colorless pictures of the boxy-bodied rabbit with dot eyes. Faint blue watercolors accent specifics in his surroundings (an apron, a swing seat, water in the tub) and orient readers to the tiniest corners of his world. Small Bunny's blanket, appropriately, anchors every page. Trailing behind him on the swing or tucked under his bottom in front of the easel, it's the only swath of color, assuming new shapes and undulating with watery blues and rippling collage work. Feeney's winsome illustrations benefit from ample white space, which somehow endows each scene with earnest, emotional weight. Her words, succinct and spot-on, appear in well-spaced lettering (irregularly colored blue by hand) and float on the wide white backdrop. Unfettered, fresh illustrations communicate a child's bottomless love for a treasured possession. (Picture book. 2-5)
