Bunny Days by Tao Nyeu

The bunnies are perfectly happy until Mr. Goat's tractor splashes them with mud. Then they are accidentally sucked up into Mrs. Goat's vacuum cleaner. Finally, they get their tails clipped. Luckily, Bear is there to help and the bunnies are restored to their original, happy state.

What I thought: Loved it! the text is simple, but the story is engaging. The illustrations are great. I love the different color schemes in each of the stories ("Muddy Bunnies," "Dusty Bunnies," and "Bunny Tails"). Fans of Beatrix Potter will get their bunny fix with this book. In a few years younger fans will be picking up Kenny and the Dragon by Tony DiTerlizzi and Emmaline and the Bunny by Katherine Hannigan.
