Hey Rabbit! Picture Book by Sergio Ruzzier with Easter Basket Review & Giveaway (ENDED)

Winning comment is #176!




I don't know if I ever told my readers that DD LOVES books. Since she just turned 4, she does not know how to read yet -- although she has several books memorized so she pretends read them to us now ^_^. We (DH and I) are avid readers and so we want our children to appreciate books and value them as much as we do. As such, we read to DD at least twice a day. In the afternoon, I would allow DD to pick 1 book and I would read it to her. DH, on the other hand, reads to DD right before she goes to bed each night. If she behaves well that day, she gets to pick up to 4 books to read (I know, her daddy really spoils her). If it's a particularly rough day, then DH will only read 1 book to her.



DD loves it when we read to her and she has amass a large collection of children's books. So, it should come as no surprise to you that when I was asked to review Sergio Ruzzier's new book I immediately said "YES!!!" As many of you probably already know, Sergio Ruzzier is the author of Amandina. DD received his newest book, Hey, Rabbit! to review.



Move over Easter Bunny, there’s a spunky new rabbit in town, and he has a suitcase full of special surprises for each of his friends: Dog, Toucan, Bear, Cat, Mouse, and Crab! Sergio Ruzzier, author of the Amandina, has once again worked his considerable magic to create Hey, Rabbit! – a playful tale that is sure to have kids shouting out the words and immersing themselves in the detailed and witty illustrations. Booklist has this to say about this soon-to-be Easter classic, “Ruzzier’s animals are a very appealing group, sweet and expressive with adorable little bellies, and each wish leads to a colorful and lively scene.” We think Kirkus’ starred review says it all: “The colors are soft and clear; the line is vivacious and the little anthropomorphized animals are sweet. Their satisfied imaginations fill whole pages, and friendship emanates from every wriggle.”

OUR REVIEW:


DD loves her new bunny book. Besides loving the illustrations, she also loves the story line. It's all about giving and receiving. DD thinks it's great that the bunny does nice things for his friends and in return he is gets a surprise too. Personally, I love that this book is all about giving and receiving. The rabbit opens his magic suitcase and fulfills the dreams of each one of his friends. With his generosity, he receives more than just a simple gift in return. His magic suitcase shows him the value of friendships.



To buy Hey, Rabbit!, please go to Amazon.com to make your purchase.



For one of my lucky readers, I have an exciting Easter basket you can win for your child. This is an amazing Easter basket that includes a copy of the book, a yummy (and large!) Lindt chocolate bunny, Easter eggs and…drum roll please!.....an original signed ink and watercolor framed drawing of Rabbit.
