Quiet Bunny by Lisa McCue (review)
Title: Quiet Bunny
Author: Lisa McCue
Illustrator: Lisa McCue
Genre: Easy Reader
Lisa McCue does a wonderful job of not only crafting a story for children, but hiding some work inside. No, this is not a Where's Waldo? book, this is a book to help kids with speech development. And it does it without them noticing.
The story follows a bunny who wants to be a part of the nighttime sounds, but finds that he can't make any. The birds tweet and the crickets ch-cheet. But bunny doesn't make a sound.
Not to worry, he finds a way to join in the night songs but you'll need to wait until the end to find out how.
*Mrs. McCue was kind enough to appear at the local bookshop Jabberwocky a few weeks back to sign books. Thanks to both for being so nice!
