Trixie can't wait to bring her one-of-a-kind Knuffle Bunny to school and show him off to everyone. But when she gets there, she sees something awful: Sonja has the same bunny. Suddenly, Knuffle Bunny doesn't seem so one-of-a-kind anymore. Chaos ensues until the bunnies are taken away by Ms. Greengrove. After school, Trixie finally gets her beloved bunny back. But in the middle of the night, Trixie realizes something. She has the wrong bunny!

Daddy comes to the rescue again as a midnight swap is arranged with the other bunny, the other little girl, and the other daddy. Needless to say, the daddies are not very happy. By the end of the story Trixie has her beloved bunny back, but she has also gained something new: her very first best friend.

In the tradition of the Caldecott Honor-winner KNUFFLE BUNNY: A CAUTIONARY TALE, this is another heartfelt, hilarious picture book that children (and their parents) will love.

Knuffel Bunny Too is fascinating, extremely awesome, and 100,000% funny! In this book Trixie and Sonia's bunnies get mixed up, but they don't know until midnight! It is extremely awesome when Trixie talks so much that she drives her dad CRAZY! The illustrations are funny because of the eyes. Kids who read this book will never take their toys to school EVER AGAIN (except pre-school)!

Using a dynamic combination of photos and artwork, these illustrations capture the community setting and the emotional intensity and expressiveness of characters. A delightful sequel to Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale, it humourously captures the older emotional response when a child id separated from a comfort object.

It is so new that I have only gotten to read it once but I love this Knuffle Bunny also!

This book is about a young girl who has a very special bunny that she loves very much. She calls him knuffle bunny. She is excited about starting school and showing everyone her special bunny, but when she gets to school the first day she sees a girl with a bunny just like her knuffle bunny. They argue all day intil the teacher finally takes the bunnies away. That night when they are in bed and can't sleep they both realize that they have the wrong bunny. They demand their parents call and exchange their bunnies in the middle of the night. They become best friends through the mix up of their special bunnies.I love this book. It is on my list of must buy books. This book touched my heart because my daughter has a bunny named bunbun. When she was two years old and bunbun needed to spend sometime in the washer and dryer she would stand beside them crying until bunbun was finished. We lost bunbun one time and no one was allowed to do anything until bunbun was found. I would have my students make their own art work like the ones used in this book. I would also invite them to write a story about their art work.

Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity is the continued adventure of Trixie and her best friend, the one and only Knuffle Bunny. Trixie has entered into Pre-K to only discover that all is not perfect in her world. What starts off to be an exciting day of school with the highlight to be the show and telling of Knuffle Bunny ends up in near disaster when another girl in the class has a Knuffle Bunny. The two bunnies end up in time out and then mistakenly switched. The discovery and events that lead up to the return of the bunnies bring the two girls together to share their friendship with each other.This book with its unique illustrations is a big hit with the class I am reading to at school. They loved Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale, so they are familiar with the characters, and they are excited for the sequel. Willems continues his use of photography combined with illustrated characters to give the book a completely different appearance. He uses the pictures to help tell the story by creating different moods with lighting and shading. It is a fun book to read.This book could be used as an extension in the classroom before the first show and tell time to introduce the idea, and maybe demonstrate how not to act.It would be good to use when talking about friendships and getting along with others.It would be fun to have the students create family pictures on black and white copies of their homes and neighborhoods. This would be a good ice breaker at the beginning of the school year for parent involvement.

Knuffle bunny gets mixed up with a similar bunny belonging to a classmate. The story has a good moral for youngsters understanding how to share and the importance of belonging.

A case of mistaken identity leads to a friendship in Knuffle Bunny Too. Trixie cannot wait to get to school when with her new stuffed rabbit until she arrives and Sonja has one exactly like it. The two argue and scuffle throughout the day and get their stuffed friends taken away. The teacher returns them at the end of the day but mixes them up. Not until late that night is the mix-up realized and Trixe and Sonja demand that their rightful bunny is returned. At 2:30 they meet up and exchange stuffed animals, and realize how much they each needed to have their own back. Sonja and Trixie become friends and learn to play nice with each other and share. The illustrations in the book are hand drawn over images of New York City which is a change of pace, although I am not sure I like it. I didn't find this story to be entertaining or interesting, it was rather dull.

In this story Trixie is grown now and is just starting kindergarten. She is really excited about school and about showing off Knuffle bunny. When she is ready to go home something terrible happen she mixes up Knuffle bunny with one of her classmates¿ bunny which looks almost identical. She doesn¿t realize it until she is at home in bed in the middle of the night. She wakes up her parents and makes her dad take her to meet up with the other family to get her bunny back. As in the firs Knuffle bunny the illustrations are great. The backgrounds are black and white photos and the people are caricatures.

Trixie has grown since Knuffle Bunny, and she's not only talking, but loving preschool. When she proudlu brings her beloved bunny in to show to her friends, she is horrified to discover that Sonja also has a Knuffle Bunny.After the teacher confiscates both bunnies, a mixup leads to Trixie's 2:30am realisation that she has the WRONG bunny!This is another darling story, and while Trixie is no longer a member of the not-yet-talking brigade, she is still a very sympathetic character - her night time horror at the switch is impossible not to empathise with.Again the photographic backgrounds bring a feeling of realism and a wonderful sense of city to the story.

I really liked this one. As two girls get their Knuffle bunnies taken away after disputing with one another, and eventually replaced with the others, their fathers are forced to meet at 2:30 in the morning to replace them, but leaving the two girls to form a valuable friendship. The artwork is really good, as it incorporates real pictures with drawn characters. The storyline is excellent, and the dialogue hilarious, ridden with cleverly written lines. The positive message reads, likeness breeds valuable friendships, and dispute over likeness is a primitive form of engagement in social situations.

The sequel to the Knuffle Bunny book, finds Trixie in a desperate mix up and her harried dad trying to right it once again.
josier80 on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
What a pleasant surprise! The pictures are different, the story read a little differently, and the whole books is just a little. . .different from your average children's book. I think younger kids would like the story, but older kids would get more of the humor.
linnaea44 on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This picture book is very fun and cute to read. I loved the illustrations, great combination of realism and cartoons. The storyline is funny, and I could imagine the hysteria of the child when she realizes that it is not her bunny. There is no reasoning with the poor girl. I loved that the other girls father called at about the same time. Very funny. I would definitly recommend this book for early readers, especially someone who has a close furry friend.

Really, if you've read and liked the first, you'll probably like this one too.I just have a single qualm about it. The layout of the first few pages makes it hard to read - I'm not sure where to break in with Trixie's chatter, that sort of thing.And the midnight switching of the bunnies is a little contrived-looking.But all that aside, it's (almost) as great as the original.

Knuffle Bunny Too is a fantastic read aloud picture book for 10+month to 5+year old. Trixie and Sonja get off to a bad start at school, when they both realize they have the same stuff animal. After squabbles and bunnies put away, school ends and the wrong bunnies are given to the wrong owners. Once the girls realize they do not have their bunny, everyone is awakened. Parents call each other at 2:30am to exchange bunnies so everyone can go back to sleep. Every child and parent will connect to this very humorous touching story. Friendships build from upsetting moments and major battles eventually fade away, Trixie and Sonja will leave a smile on the readers face. The illustration is powerful. Photography (sepia photos) for background with the cartoon art figures superimposed definitely brings the story to a genuine present day connection.

A story about a young girl who loses her bunny, a modernism book
wlgordon on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
In this sequel to "Knuffle Bunny" a case of mistaken identity leads to high drama. As powerful and moving as the original, "Knuffle Bunny Too" is a must read.

Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity by Mo Willems. This book is about Trixie, who is excited about going to school to show off her one of a kind Knuffle Bunny. When she gets there she ses that Sonja has a Knuffle Bunny too! This causes problems all day until the teacher finally puts both bunnies away for the rest of the day. When it is time to go, Trixie and Sonja get their bunnies back and go home. In the middle of the night Trixie realizes the bunny she has is not her own. She convinces her dad to call Sonja¿s house, but the phone is already ringing when he gets there. The daughters and daddies plan to meet for a bunny switch in the middle of the night. Both girls go home happy and can¿t wait to see each other the next day.I loved this book! The story was great and relatable even to parents (I¿ve made several midnight trips for forgotten lovies). On top of the great story were the awesome illustrations. Animations were juxtaposed on to real photographs. Some of the pictures felt like search and finds, which both my four year old and I loved! Everyone should check this one out!I would use this with either pre-K or kindergarten. I would have a discussion over their lovies, and the next day have a show and tell.

The book as pictures with cartoon characters in the foreground. I really liked this art form. The characters and setting integrated nicely together.

Summary: This book is about two little girls who both have their own Knuffle Bunny. Trixie was the main character and was very excited to show off her Knuffle Bunny ar Pre-K. When she gets there, she sees Sonja who has the same one of a kind bunny. The girls argue and both bunnies are taken away. The girls get their bunny back at recess and go home for the day. At 2:00 AM Trixie realizes the Knuffle Bunny she has is not hers, It is Sonja's. Trixie wakes up her dad and arrangements are made to exchange the bunnies. The bunnies are exchanged and the girls go to bed. The next day both girls talk to one another when they say at the same time "I'm gald you got your bunny back." After that, the girls become best friends.Personal reaction:I enjoy this book because children can really relate to it. Most children have a stuff animal or blanket that they hold on too for a while. They want to bring it everywhere. It also shows how the two girls become best friends even though they have the same toy. Extension Ideas:I would have the children write about an item that is very special to them and why.I would have the children introduce their best friend and tell everyone how they met.

Summary: This book is the sequel to the original Knuffle Bunny. Trixie takes her knuffle bunny to school for show and tell. She is very excited to bring her bunny to school because she thinks her bunny is one of a kind. However when she gets to school she realizes that a friend has the same bunny. Trixie didn¿t like the fact that someone else had her bunny. When the teacher took up the bunnies she mixed them up and the girls didn¿t realize until late that night. When the girls switch bunnies they begin talking and realize they have a lot in common and become good friends.Personal Reaction: I like this book a lot because when I was little I had a ¿teddy.¿ I didn¿t go anywhere without my teddy so I can relate to this story. I think children will also enjoy this story because often times they had a favorite animal or blanket that they can relate with. Classroom Extension:(1) Students can draw pictures of what their knuffle bunny would look like.(2). Students could have a show and tell like in the book.

This tale of Trixie and her Knuffle bunny mix-up at pre-school had me chuckling, especially when dads had to meet in the middle of the night to exchange the bunnies, and the first thing the girls say at school the next day is, "Do you want to play with my Knuffle Bunny?" The black-and-white photographs of New York City and the pre-school classroom make a great background for the cartoonish simple line drawings of the characters. With layers of humor, this is a book that both parents and children can find entertaining!
