Picture Book: What's the Matter, Bunny Blue?

Poor Bunny Blue! He's lost his granny, Boo hoo hoo!

With this rhyming refrain, even the youngest kids can read along as a wide and wonderful variety of animals try to figure out where poor Bunny's granny could be.

With very simple, soft images on an uncluttered page, this title would be suitable for very young toddlers. The familiar theme (losing a loved one) will resonate with most preschool kids, and of course there's a happy ending when Granny and Bunny are joyously reunited.

Aside from the occasional scanning difficulty with the rhymes, this is a wonderful, warm readaloud that would work for individual reading or groups. A great opener for discussions about what to do when you get lost, too!
