Bunny and his forest friends from Bunny's Book Club are back! And this time they're heading to class to make sure their young friend has the best first day of school ever.
Bunny and his forest friends meet at the town library every Saturday morning for book club. But one summer day, their library buddy Josie confesses to Bunny that she's nervous about starting school. Bunny has an idea: He'll go with her! Soon, Bunny's friends Bear, Raccoon, Bird, Porcupine, Squirrel, Mole, Mouse, and Frog decide to join him—and Josie's first day of school turns into a critter-filled adventure!
For any child starting school, here's a comforting, funny, and very fuzzy celebration of friendship that will make everyone excited to hit the books.
"Silvestro and Mai-Wyss make plain the joys of intellectual curiosity and exploration, and their message is clear: Libraries and schools are wonderful places to learn, grow, and seek your joy."—Kirkus
"In this appealing story, Silvestro offers a new twist on the familiar first-day jitters theme by switching from the child’s perspective to the outsiders’ point of view. . . . Colorful illustrations set a buoyant tone for this endearing sequel to Bunny’s Book Club."—Booklist
"Jam-packed with comedic details (art supplies get stuck in Porcupine’s quills; Frog demonstrates his jumping-rope prowess), Mai-Wyss’s busy pictures heighten the geniality of this celebration of friendship and school."—Publishers Weekly
