From School Library Journal
PreSchool-K–Bunny hops through a garden and is introduced to different colors and flowers along the way. The rhymed text, stilted at times, gives readers clues as to the hue that will appear on the next page. For instance, "In a cottage garden/ears and whiskers clean/Bunny finds a patch of lawn/what she sees is–Âgreen!" After she is done exploring, she curls up in her nest where she "dreams a rainbow dream/colors blossom-bright." The watercolor-and-pencil illustrations do a good job of bringing the blossoms to life: orange tiger lilies, yellow primroses, and green clover and grass are easily identifiable and gracefully drawn. Bunny has expressive features and fuzzy gray fur. This is an attractive and effective concept book and may, as such, be a useful purchase. Yet it is doubtful that the character or the presentation itself will ever gain "read it again" status.– Lisa Gangemi Kropp, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY
