Adorable little rhyming story about what these bunnies do all day. Great for read-aloud and little ones. Though not an Easter book, it would be perfect for Easter-time, or spring-time in general.
Hop is Lydia's favorite book. It is simply written yet contains unusual wording and great rhythm which is good for her brain. We have been counting a lot of real bunnies here in Wisconsin, they are everywhere starting at dusk. We recite parts of this book depending on what the real bunnies are doing.

This board book has lovely illustrations and simple rhyming text that was very popular with my story time audience. We stopped often to count the rabbits or discuss what they were doing on many of the pictures ("hungry bunnies in a bunch (5) find some clover and nibble lunch") The pictures are big and bright enough that even with a good sized story time audience this book worked.
Summary: "Lippety loppity, out jump five adorable baby bunnies who bump, bumble, zig-zag, wiggle and hop"
This was a very cute, fun, SIMPLE book that my twins (11 months) and my 3 year old enjoyed.

"Picture books are performances," says Phyllis Root, quoting some sage advice she once received. "They're performances that involve a child--something both of you do. And once I started thinking of them that way, I started getting much looser about making up words and playing around with rhythm."
