Thunder Bunny (Review)
We are always on the lookout for new books from the library. One of our latest is "Thunder Bunny" by Rodney Alan Greenblat.
In this book, there are three children featured. Chops, who talked "endlessly", Specks, a reader/writer, and Artemis, an artist. These children are friends who frequently get together and create stories. One day they find a huge egg which hatches, and over the course of a few months, this bunny that hatched becomes as large as a house. Off they embark on a quest to find his mother. They travel through lands such as "Chatterland", "Scribblearia", and "Volcanoland". They do eventually find his mother.
This book is really cute. It is different from any other book we've read. I like all the different lands the children travel through in their adventure. Even though some lands are not talked about as much as others, it can bring up some really fun activities you can do with your kids. For instance, when traveling through Silly Sea-Monster Ocean, you could have your kids describe or draw some monsters that would be in that ocean. This would also be a great opportunity to make up some silly lands with your kids and see how creative they are!
My kids (3 and 4) really enjoyed this book, and I did too.
