Summary: Watch the Bunny family go about their busy day in town. Join them on vacation at the farm. Set sail with them from a bustling sea port. This cleverly illustrated picture book shows readers an encapsulated world over just a few pages, giving children so many different things to look for. Don't forget to keep track of the nefarious Benny Badger!

Young Reader Reaction: Both of my kids absolutely loved this book. They requested it again and again, finding it hilarious and interesting each time. Neither kid got tired of reading it. They loved the illustrations and were enraptured by the search for Benny Badger.
Adult Reader Reaction: The illustrations are clever and captivating and the story is easy to follow for kids. I like Busy Bunny Days and were surprised by my kids' reaction. I expected that they would like it, but I did not foresee just how much they loved it. We've read books like this before, but they've never shown as much interest as they have in this one.
Pros: There is lots to enjoy with Busy Bunny Days! Clever and cool illustrations, three different scenes, and an adventure to find one character.
Borrow or Buy: Buy. I will be buying this book. My children repeatedly requested it and never got tired of looking through it. I also think it would be a great gift.
Educational Themes: Although kids are most likely going to get wrapped up in the adventure of finding Benny Badger, there are plenty of other activities on each page. Ask your child to pick out three things that they see. Given that the Bunny family visits different places, you can also talk about the kinds of things that happen there: different types of job, landmarks and scenery, etc.
