Synopsis

Bunny Island by Pippa Kennard, Yukihiro Fukuda

In the Sea of Japan lies Okunoshima Island, a popular wildlife tourist destination that is teeming with wild bunnies. Visitors come from near and far to visit the island's furry inhabitants, who are surprisingly tame and accustomed to human interaction. Now kids can come spend a day with the bunnies of Bunny Island. These irresistible creatures, captured in full-colour, full-page photographs, are naturals in front of the camera. Young children will delight in these close-up photos of wiggling, yawning and kissing bunnies. The brief but endearing text will appeal to the animal lover in all of us. These are seriously busy bunnies! Flip through the pages to see how the bunnies hop, hop, hop and zoom, zoom, zoom across the page. Actions are accentuated with repetitive text to teach young children action words and invite them to join in on the fun. There is no quicker way to learn about bunnies!

Reviews

Children will be drawn to the cute photos and will learn a few facts about rabbits, too.--Catherine Coyne Youth Services Book Review (11/20/2015)

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
