Small Bunny's Blue Blanket by Tatyana Feeney - ADVISABLE

Feeney, Tatyana.  Small Bunny’s Blue Blanket.  Alfred A. Knopf, 2012. $16.99.  PICTURE BOOK.  This is a book for every child who has loved a special blanket.  Small Bunny loves his blue blanket.  He takes it with him everywhere.  It helped him swing higher on the swingset, paint pictures, read, and even play in the sandbox.  Then the inevitable—Mommy Bunny wanted to give Small Bunny a bath and to wash his blanket.  Small Bunny thought his blanket was perfect just the way it was.  Mommy Bunny assures him it will only take a minute—it takes 107.  Author/illustrator Feeney uses only three colors to illustrate her story: blue, charcoal, and a little bit of pink.  The focus of the illustrations and the story is entirely on Small Bunny and his blue blanket, as it should be.  Small children will readily relate to this story and parents too!  Pre-K-ADVISABLE.  Samantha Hastings, MA, MLS.
