Kid Konnection: Bunny's Book Club Goes to School

Every weekend, I host a feature called Kid Konnection -- a regular weekly feature about anything related to children's books. This week I'm going to share with you an adorable picture book about a bunny and his friends!

Summary: Bunny and his forest friends from Bunny’s Book Club are back! And this time they’re heading to class to make sure their young friend has the best first day of school ever.

Bunny and his forest friends meet at the town library every Saturday morning for book club. But one summer day, their library buddy Josie confesses to Bunny that she’s nervous about starting school. Bunny has an idea: He’ll go with her! Soon, Bunny’s friends Bear, Raccoon, Bird, Porcupine, Squirrel, Mole, Mouse, and Frog decide to join him—and Josie’s first day of school turns into a critter-filled adventure!

For any child starting school, here’s a comforting, funny, and very fuzzy celebration of friendship that will make everyone excited to hit the books. -- Doubleday Books for Young Readers

BUNNY'S BOOK CLUB GOES TO SCHOOL by Annie Silvestro and illustrated by Tatjana Mai-Wyss is a wonderful book about the power of friendship. Bunny and his friends from the forest want to help their friend Josie on her first day of school. They all head to the school to find her, but they discover that it's bigger than they expected. They look everywhere for Josie and discover some fun along the way... all while showing what it means to be a true friend.

I thought BUNNY'S BOOK CLUB GOES TO SCHOOL was so sweet. I love Bunny and his assortment of forest friends, and I was especially happy to see how they were willing to go the extra mile for their friend Josie. This picture book reinforces what it means to be a friend and how support from those close to you can make things better. (It also begins by showing how wonderful libraries are with all of their offerings, so there's that too!) 

Not only does this book have a terrific message about friendship, but it also is a great book to help get your children ready for school (or any new adventure). Josie admits that she's nervous about her first day of school; and BUNNY'S BOOK CLUB GOES TO SCHOOL shows that it's okay to be scared. As the cast of animal friends look for Josie, they find all of the great things that a school has to offer like a cafeteria, an art room, a gym, a playground and even a library! I think this "look" at a school might help to ease youngsters concerns and show that starting a new school can be exciting!

BUNNY'S BOOK CLUB GOES TO SCHOOL is a sweet story about starting a new school with the help of friends. Highly recommended for summer reading, especially for kiddos who are starting school in the fall!

Thanks to the publisher for providing a review copy of this book.
