My Blue Bunny, Bubbit by Maggie Smith - ADVISABLE

Smith, Maggie.  My Blue Bunny, Bubbit.  Clarion Books (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), $16.99. Content: G. PICTURE BOOK.

A little girl has a special blue bunny that her grandmother sewed for her when she was just a baby.  Now the little girl’s parents are having a new baby and both the girl and the bunny aren’t too sure about it.  Luckily, Nonni (grandmother) comes to stay and together they sew a special elephant for her new baby brother.  Then Nonni tells her that she will be a super big sister.   This is a book to help young children prepare for the arrival of a new sibling.  I particularly liked the idea of making something special for the new baby.  Readers (and parents) looking for bunny and elephant patterns from the book can find them at 

Pre-K, K-3: ADVISABLE.  Reviewer: Samantha Hastings, MA, MLS.
