Overview

Wee Little Bunny just can’t sit still. It’s not that he doesn’t want to hear the tortoise’s story or play with the fox, but he can’t seem to stay in one place long before he has to hop, hop, hop off and play. The only person who can get him to calm down is his mama, and when she does, he gets to tell her all about his busy day!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A little bunny, whose enthusiasm readers will find both recognizable and infectious, can't sit still with a whole world waiting to be explored. He meets a chipmunk and a porcupine while playing, then returns to tell his mother all about his busy day. This sweet follow-up to Little Chick and Little Lamb is ideal for kids who like adventures, but like coming home even more. Ages 2–6. (Jan.)
School Library Journal
PreS-K—An appealing look at a baby animal's adventures. A busy bunny chases a dragonfly, plays with a chipmunk, and rolls in the clover. His only uncomfortable encounter is with a grumpy porcupine: "Settle down, now!" Nothing hazardous or frightening occurs, so the book can be enjoyed by the youngest preschoolers. The text is sometimes overly precious: "'What will you do today?' asked his sweet Mama dear" and "giggle, giggle, giggle!—he dashed through the grass." But the narrative serves as a fine vehicle for Butler's warm, beautifully detailed acrylic and colored-pencil illustrations. Readers can almost feel the porcupine's quills and the rabbit's fuzzy tail. Soft blues, greens, and browns permeate the spreads. This story will inspire in young children a greater affection for the inhabitants of the forest and field.—Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY
Kirkus Reviews
Joining Wee Little Chick (2008) and Wee Little Lamb (2009), a fuzzy bunny "all brand new" exuberantly hops out to explore a grassy meadow until Mama's call ("Story time!") brings him hurtling back home for a cozy recap of the day's small adventures. Butler crafts an idyllic, almost Stepfordian setting, all bright blue sky and soft green grasses, and adds to the animal cast a frisky chipmunk, an irritable porcupine and a watchful "chickadee-dee-dee" for bunny to encounter. To call this title and its companions "cute" is to vastly understate the case; it's hard to read such lines as, " ‘Chase me first!' called the bunny, / and-giggle, giggle, giggle!- / he dashed through the grass," without wondering if the formula's fizzed over the top. But there's no question author and illustrator know their audience: As with the other titles it's just the ticket for urging recent graduates of toddlerdom to check out their world's boundaries and then coaxing them back into the fold and mama's lap. (Picture book. 2-4)
