Bunny Mine: Bella Loves Bunny by David McPhail
BELLA BRUSHES HER HAIR.
BUNNY LOVES BEING BRUSHED.
Bella and Bunny have got a good thing going. They do everything together.
Bunny wiggles her nose as Bella arises and slips on her bunny slippers. Bunny plants the seeds as Bella smells the blooms. Bella eats her lunch and Bunny nibbles carrot cake.
Bella tickles the ivories on her toy piano, and Bunny... does the bunny hop. They twirl and whirl, chase and race all day.
And when day is done, Bunny helps Bella choose a charming nightgown and the two slip into bed, Bunny's wee bed beside Bella's big girl bed. Paw in hand, they slide into sleepytime together.
The Caldecott-winning David McPhail's latest, Bella Loves Bunny (David McPhail's Love Series) (Abrams Applewood Books, 2013), companion book to his Ben Loves Bear (David McPhail's Love Series) offers his trademark soft pastel images with an endearing portrayal of a girl who loves her toy bunny so much he seems to come alive in her imagination. McPhail's illustrations never fail to please, and Bella and Bunny are a pair of thoroughly charming buddies.
