Why should you read it: I originally won this autographed book in a contest a couple of years ago. It was the first picture signed by the author I had won and I was really looking forward to reading it. Imagine my surprise when I read it and discovered it didn't really appeal to me so I tucked it away on my bookshelf. Fast forward two years and I was on my way to visit my friend's daughter and decided to share this book with her. Hailey actually liked this book a lot (she's almost 5) and I found myself delighting in the simple story lines of the three tales as I read them to her.
Ms. Wells manages to take children on a sleepy voyage to the Bunny Planet where the trials of a hard day can be forgotten and children get a chance at a 'do-over' day. The clever rhyming lines help young readers to deal with the stresses in their lives and gives them ways to handle a topsy-turvy world.
