Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The gentle tone reassures with its warm sense of a family coming full circle." - Booklist Reviews

"From the soft illustrations to the tone of text, there is an overall sense of gentleness." - School Library Journal

"You’re Lovable to Me delivers the story in a gentle rhyming style that parents will have a good time reading to their children while kids immerse themselves in Sue Anderson’s illustrations." - Children's Books Guide

Children's Literature - Claudia Mills
"It had been a big day. It had been a hard night." Mama's large family of mischievous bunnies has made a big mess of mealtime, bath time, and teeth-brushing. Now contrite, they kneel by Mama's knee, as she reassures them that "When a mama loves a bunny," she loves him whether he is sad, frightened, lonely, worried, mad, exhausted, embarrassed, or shy. Whatever a bunny's feelings, "I'm your mama. You're my bunnies. And you're lovable to me." The second half of the book shows Grandpa Bunny coming to the house while Mama is asleep on the couch, tucking her under a blanket, and repeating the same sentiment to her as she sleeps: "When a papa loves a bunny, that's the way it will always be. I'm your papa. You're still my bunny. And you're lovable to me." The trans-generational "love you forever" message is sure to appeal to those who lap up Robert Munsch's treacley mega-seller, but it does not quite work as laid out here. Mama has not been frustrated by her little bunnies' feelings, but by their behavior (and by the commotion caused by their sheer number), and Mama herself has not behaved badly in any way that would call for parallel reassurance on the part of Grandpa Bunny; she has not done anything that would occasion the thought that he still loves her anyway. But Anderson's watercolors are a delight, filled with amusing details and wonderfully expressive emotions that add up to a feel-good celebration of family. Reviewer: Claudia Mills, Ph.D.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—Six little bunnies prepare for bed after an active day in which they demonstrate behavior and emotions familiar to young children. Mother Bunny assures her little ones, "I'm your mama, you're my bunnies. And you're lovable to me" no matter what feelings they display—sadness, fear, loneliness, anger, exhaustion, or just shyness. She tucks them in bed, and then continues her household chores. Grandpa arrives for his evening tea and finds her sleeping on the couch. After watching her awhile, he says that even though she is grown with a family of her own, she is still his little bunny and lovable to him. The illustrations present a busy family in a cozy atmosphere. The childlike actions and emotions displayed by the bunnies will be familiar to most children as they examine the pictures. The dainty drawings were done in a pastel palette with lots of white background, reflecting the mood and simplicity of the story. From the soft illustrations to the tone of text, there is an overall sense of gentleness. However, while children will understand the message of mother's love, the grandfather's tender feelings for his daughter may be a bit beyond their ken. The concept is similar to Robert Munsch's Love You Forever (Firefly, 1995).—Margaret R. Tassia, Millersville University, PA

    SWEET AND TENDER SNUGGLE BOOK

    What a nice way to put children to bed. This book educates children in a sweet way using bunnies to tell them that their mommy is never mad at them for very long and that they are always cherished and loved. The book the changes a little bit and brings in the grandfather bunny who also tells his "little girl" (the mama bunny) that she is special to him. A loving story.
