Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Hynes-Berry
Parents and older siblings are likely to delight in the rhyming refrains of this book that systematically explores different things we can do, and ways we can move, play, feed, clean, and dress the baby, ending with the perfect things to say: "Peekaboo" and "I Love You." The text dances across the pages of the book, with the refrain ending each two page spread. This is the seventh book in which Paige Miglio has illustrated Walton's warm text with soft pastels of bunny babies and adults. While the bunny features of long ears, pink nose, and twitchy whiskers are representational, everyone is dressed in comfy cute human clothes; so too, these bunnies use the same kind of high chairs, bathtubs, high chairs, and toys young children will see in their homes. There is no question that this book, like the others Walton and Miglio have done, is very sweet. For my money, however, Walton's unique talent is found in the clever zany tales of his language arts series tales such as Pig, Pigger, Piggest. Reviewer: Mary Hynes-Berry
Kirkus Reviews
Pretty pictures and a bouncy text just skirt the teetering edge of cutesy-poo to offer a chant for family playtime. The baby of the title is a bunny, with a Mama bunny in poofy dresses and aprons, a Daddy bunny and an older-sibling bunny (their fluffy cotton tails are always visible despite their clothing). What they do with the baby are the usual baby things: hug and kiss, rock and bounce, feed, wash, dress and play. The pictures are in candy colors and friendly patterns: This bunny family inhabits a comfy domestic scene, the figures on a white background with the occasional accoutrements of table, high chair, etc. The baby bunny occupies many a solo page, in one adorable pose or another, usually opposite a patterned page of very brief text: "How do we play with the bunny? / How do we play with the baby?" And, of course, it all ends with "I love you!" (Picture book. 3-6)
