Hand in Hand by Rosemary Wells- ADVISABLE

Wells, Rosemary. Hand in Hand, PICTURE BOOK. Henry Holt and Company, 2016. $17.99. A little bunny talks to his or her mama about all the things that the little bunny wants from her. The mama should a teacher, a first talker, a best playmate, and a first reader, among many other things. The pictures are classic Rosemary Wells illustrations and the message is nothing short of adorable. The problem is, that this book seems more to be meant for adults, particularly mothers. So, this would be a fantastic gift for Mother’s Day or a new mom-to-be, but for a school library, it’s not a great choice. PRE-K/GIFT- ADVISABLE. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
