Lection written by Doreen Cronin I really liked this book about rescue bunnies training a new bunny and rescuing a giraffe what will they do when the hyenas start to come Loved the movie uotes peppered throughout right toddlers and definitely preschool Good message but the story dragged and we all lost interest Hilarious Cute story about a bunny who becomes a rescue bunny He has to pass his training He makes several mistakes but he has a lot of heart and saves the day in spite of errors The cutest part is the fact the background dialogue are movie uotes Very cute 45 out of 5Newbie struggles to pass her field test to become a full fledged rescue bunnyRescue Bunnies will be appealing to both the child and the adult reader The humor my favorite part about her books is dry and sophisticated I especially like Cronin s use of funny and famous movie lines You had me at hello and You can t handle the truth The illustrations are big and bold and should catch the child s eye She has dedicated this book to First Responders everywhere and it could be great for a unit on community helpers Lol Mommy s review from 10411 The humor here is the best The illustrations are second best The story itself is a tie for second best or maybe slightly behind itThe look on the giraffe s face while she s being rescued is priceless and the drawing so simple it makes it that much special because a lot wasn t needed to achieve the effectI do have to say though it s a little alarming that the story takes a turn where there s a code red and this means the rescuers bail and leave the victim to be devoured by hungry hyenas The only thing that saves the poor defenseless trapping in the mud pit giraffe is Newbie the bunny being trained That was somewhat disconcerting to me and Julia noticed this before I said a word or responded in any way I like that she can pull something like that from a story and ask about it or expand on it but it s kind of icky that it was incl.
