Sunny Bunnies


Sunny Bunnies, by Margie Blumberg

Margie Blumberg has written a delightfully entertaining story about a family of bunny rabbits who spend a day at the beach…. The rhyming text is as clever as it is entertaining and children will thoroughly enjoy the surprise at the end! Charmingly illustrated throughout by June Goulding, Sunny Bunnies is a perfect pick for family, school, and community library picture book collections! –Midwest Book Review, July 2009

Sunny Bunnies Has Won a Gold Medal! Independent Publisher has announced the medal winners for its 2008 Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards. In the Picture Book Preschool category, Sunny Bunnies has been awarded the gold medal! –Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards<br /><br />Two bunnies spend the day at the beach with their family and enjoy their time building a castle, flying a kite, and jumping the waves. After a campfire on the beach, the bunnies return home and say good night to their tired parents. After such an exciting day though, the bunnies are not quite ready for sleep and they sneak out of bed for a little more play. Told in rhyming verse, the story is cute and clever but nonetheless has an awkward arc to it. It seems as if the story will finish after the bunnies return home from their day and evening adventures at the beach but the surprise ending prolongs the story. The bright and cheerful illustrations are a delight and will appeal to the book’s young audience. Goulding’s ink-and-watercolor drawings are full of life and activity; she has created bunnies that are playful and endearing. Especially hilarious is the spread where the bunny children have snuck out of bed and are checking on their parents who have collapsed on top of their bed and are sound asleep, too exhausted to climb under the covers. Wide awake, the bunnies continue their beach day with a game of Go Fish! Reviewer: Margaret Orto –Children’s Literature
