Book Review: The ABC Bunny

Rating: ★★★★☆

This Newbery Honor book is a beautifully rendered alphabet, set to an original song (musical score included).  It tells a minimal story, illustrated in pleasing and original black-and-white drawings.  Singing books are great for holding very young children’s attention (ages 0-2), and this one also includes some unusual word choices and enjoyable animal pictures that will keep the attention of kids from 3-6.  It is an excellent choice when seeking to appeal to both ages, or as a supplement for alphabet memorization.  The song is lilting and repetitive, and a bit difficult to pick up at first, but with practice (or a better musical ear than mine) it quickly becomes easier to sing.
