Bun Bun Button by Patricia Polacco-OPTIONAL

Polacco, Patricia.  Bun Bun Button., 40 pgs.  Putnam Juvenile, 2011.  $17.99.  Inside cover: “Paige loves cuddling with Gramma and all of Gramma’s pets in the Old Blue Chair.  But cuddling there is even more wonderful when Gramma makes her Bun Bun Button, an adorable stuffed bunny with a button nose.  Then, on an outside day, a balloon steals Bun Bun Button and floats her away.  Paige misses her dear little friend!  She can only hope that luck-or love- will bring Bun Bun Button home again.”  The illustrations are bright, bold and inviting.  We weren’t sure about all the pets.  A squirrel living in her gramma’s house?  That was strange.  The story has a sweet, but unrealistic ending.  Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  OPTIONAL.
