Bunnies are known for being very energetic and hopping all around. In this story a baby bunny explores the world outside of its den. He gets into trouble, he experiences different textures, sounds, and nature all in a solitary day. No one is able to get him to calm down and stop running around except for his mother. When she calls him home he relaxes and tells her about his long but fruitful day.
This book uses beautifully drawn, life-like illustrations to portray life outside of the rabbit den. Children will find it is an easy read and the story flows very nicely. Young children will learn new sounds and words through fun repetition of words and practicing enunciation in the same. Children can relate to not being able to sit still and wanting to explore the world outside of their own homes. Through this little bunny children can vicariously experience nature and social interactions that they may or may not have of their own.
