"Uh-Oh, Bunny" and "No, No, Bunny" - Children's Board Books Review & Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 3/26 #LittleBunnyTour #WorthyKidsIdeals

WorthyKids/Ideals has released a new series featuring a playful bunny. Aimed at children ages 2 to 5, "No, No, Bunny" and "Uh-Oh, Bunny" provide a friendly setting where children can learn gentle life lessons about positive and negative behavior.

"Uh-Oh, Bunny," finds Little Bunny being a bit careless: drawing on walls, knocking over a plant, tearing pages from a book. When Mama asks him about the messes, Little Bunny chooses to be honest, which makes Mama happy. With Mama’s help, Little Bunny cleans up each mess. Preschoolers will learn, in a gentle, non-didactic way, that telling the truth is always best.

"In "No, No, Bunny," Little Bunny has been taking things that don’t belong to him: pennies from Mama’s purse, a friend’s toy car, and a candy bar from the store. Taking everything seemed like a good decision at the time, but now Little Bunny feels sad. He confesses to his Mama and returns the items to their owners, learning that doing what’s right is always best.

Both books feature the comforting colors and whimsical artwork of Claire Keay paired with Pamela Kennedy’s simple yet profound text. A die-cut on the cover invites children into Little Bunny’s world by revealing a raised illustration of Bunny on the first page. Perfect for introducing meaningful life lessons, the Little Bunny books are sure to be a parent and child favorite.

My review:
Every Easter I include one or two children's books inside my children's Easter Baskets. It's become part of our Easter tradition. We encourage our children to read books of all kinds. The more books they get their hands on, the more reading and learning that goes on in their lives.

"Uh-Oh Bunny" does some naughty things in his house like coloring on the walls and more. He then tells his mama the truth about each naughty thing that he did and he helps his mama with cleaning up the things that he did. On the last page, it says "Tell each other the truth." Ephesians 4:25 (NCV) Teaching children to tell the truth is an important thing. Then need to know that they can trust us, as their parents and care givers to tell us the truth without fear, but with trust. In this story, the mama bunny showed her child, Grace.

"No, No, Bunny" is a little book about taking things and that taking things, like money from his mama's purse, can then lead to stealing, and stealing isn't ok. This is a hard lesson to teach to your children. I have taught mine not to take things without paying for them and to not put things in their pockets when they pick them up at the store. I've had my children pick up a small toy or candy bar and put it in their pocket without thinking that we could get in trouble for them hiding the item since we hadn't paid for it yet. This book is perfect for teaching this lesson early on, when children are most impressionable. The last page says "If a person is stealing, he must stop stealing." Ephesians 4:28 (NCV)
