Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
When older siblings trot off to school, little ones at home can enjoy a special learning experience, thanks to What Does Bunny See?. Newbery-winning novelist Linda Sue Park turns her nimble pen to the simple rhymes and rhythms that engage the young. Like tots everywhere, a little rabbit likes to stop and smell the roses ... and the primroses and the violets and the morning glories. Along the way, she learns to name the colors of the flowers: yellow primroses, purple violets, blue morning glories. Maggie Smith's watercolors bring to life a furry protagonist who wanders wide- eyed through a bright, blooming world. Bunny is sure to engage her young human cohorts. 2005, Clarion, Ages 2 to 4.

PreS-K-Bunny hops through a garden and is introduced to different colors and flowers along the way. The rhymed text, stilted at times, gives readers clues as to the hue that will appear on the next page. For instance, "In a cottage garden/ears and whiskers clean/Bunny finds a patch of lawn/what she sees is--green!" After she is done exploring, she curls up in her nest where she "dreams a rainbow dream/colors blossom-bright." The watercolor-and-pencil illustrations do a good job of bringing the blossoms to life: orange tiger lilies, yellow primroses, and green clover and grass are easily identifiable and gracefully drawn. Bunny has expressive features and fuzzy gray fur. This is an attractive and effective concept book and may, as such, be a useful purchase. Yet it is doubtful that the character or the presentation itself will ever gain "read it again" status.-Lisa Gangemi Kropp, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

You paint the color on Lavenders, you insert your beauty in treasures. You tint lightly the dark ocean, yet why don't I like you? Is it because of your stubborness?

The gaping hole after one's heart has been torn from the chest. The aching pain you feel when your whole world is ripped away and all that can be seen is the night sky. Often associated with the burrying of loved ones. <p> Chewy
