The Pretty Pretty Bunny by Dave Horowitz-ADVISABLE

Horowitz, Dave. The Pretty Pretty Bunny, 32 pages. GP Putnam And Sons, 2011. $12.99. Inside cover: “Narcissa claims to be the best-looking bunny around. She thinks that makes her pretty awesome, unlike some of her fellow forest creatures. She's so happy she doesn't have silly beaver teeth or crazy moose antlers! In fact, she loves making fun of other animals - until a chance encounter with a powerful magic frog makes her rethink what it means to be pretty. The creator of The Ugly Pumpkin gives readers another funny take on the meaning of true beauty.”  This is the prefect book for a child/ class struggling with being kind and/or issues of pride.  The illustrations are adorable!  The story is interesting and thought provoking.  This book could be used on a unit on friendship, kindness, self esteem, etc.  Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  ADVISABLE.  Reviewer: SL.
