Five Funny Bunnies: Three Bouncing Tales; Jean Van Leeuwen and Anne Wilsdorf

Jean Van Leeuwen and Anne Wilsdorf; Illustrator
(Amazon Vine)

Arriving just before Easter, this book is awfully cute. It's actually a book with (3) separate stories featuring the same bunny family that will amuse the (3+ age group).

One story features a mother Rabbit and her little ones baking a pie for their grandmother when something silly happens on their way to deliver the pie.  Another story involves the bunnies engaged in all sorts of outdoor fun. Like children, each bunny is trying to show off in the process.  The other story is the perfect bedtime treat as the bunnies try to stall and stay up just a little bit longer, again just like little children try to do.

While the stories are fun, I thought it was the illustrations that really made this book special.  Both colorful and whimsical, you'll want to study each page and point out cute details to the special little one in your life.

4/5 stars - Worth checking out!


  1. This would be fun for my nephew who just turned 5, and I think that it would make a great Easter present for him. Thanks for sharing this with us, and for the close up shot of the illustrations!

  2. I love this one!! My boys loved the book Little Bunny Foo Foo. I had to read it every night for a year straight!
