Little Bunny on the Move – Peter McCarty
This is one little bunny who knows were it’s going. Over fields and through forests, past cows and sheep and rumbling trains, the bunny singlemindedly traipses toward its destination. It won’t stop to talk, or to be someone’s pet, and at last that determination pays off when the little bunny finally arrives at its destination.
There’s something so comforting about Little Bunny on the Move! I think it’s a combination of the art, all pastel and soft-edged and bright, and the story, about journeying until you find the place where you belong, and not stopping to settle for something less. The little bunny is incredibly cute, like a tiny little marshmallow, and even though the pages often look similar to each other, every new page brings a subtly different leg of the bunny’s journey. This is the kind of book I take childish glee in paging through, and also the kind of book that makes me proud of that childish glee. 🙂 Four fluffy white stars!
