KidSource OnLine Book Review

Pat the Bunny is one of those classic books that every parent should have for their toddler. You probably had it as a child, and perhaps your parents did as well. This spring the book celebrates its 60th anniversary.

Our household is now on its second copy of Pat the Bunny. Our oldest child 'wore out' our first copy of the book and now we have another for our toddler. The first copy literally wore out from too much toddler enthusiasm.

It's a wonderful book for toddlers because they can "explore" and use their senses as they are being read to about what they are doing - they can feel textures, see themselves in a mirror, play peek-a-boo, smell pretty smells and of course, pat the soft bunny. And the book is just the right size for small hands.

I also like the positive, supportive tone that the book opens with "Here are Paul and Judy. They can do lots of things. You can do lots of things, too". And so do my children with this book! Enjoy!

From The Back Cover

In this beloved classic, Paul and Judy play peek-a-boo, smell flowers, look in the mirror, feel Daddy's scratchy face, and, of course, pat the bunny! All eight activities in this timeless favorite will fascinate your little one.

First published in 1940, Dorothy Kunhardt's pat the bunny has sold over six million copies and is one of the best selling children's books of all time.
