ALA's summer reading theme this year is Dream Big!, which features nocturnal animals, like bats, etc. To kick off summer reading, I did a bunnies and nighttime theme for Spanish and bilingual story times.

A young rabbit has nightmares about being chased by wolves and the mother pretends to defeat them. This book is good for vocabulary and narrative skill. I'd recommend it for ages 1-4.
Nicky wakes up in the middle of the night convinced wolves are after him. When the mama bunny comes in she asks Nicky if he's sure. She talks him down from 100 wolves to only 5. But then mama tells him it's only a bad dream. Then all of the bunny children are afraid there are wolves outside. So mama bunny goes outside and bangs on the garbage cans and yells for those wolves to go away! Then she snuggles down with all of the bunny babies for the night.
Gorbachev is fast becoming one of my favorite picture book author/illustrators. His stories are simple and sweet and the illustrations are nice (kind of Mercer Meyer meets Richard Scarry)
Le illustrazioni sono bellissime! Talmente espressive che anche senza il testo ma solo con le immagini ti godresti comunque questo piccolo capolavoro!
A cute little story about being afraid in the dark. Wonderful Illustrations!
Great bedtime story for my son. He loves it and likes to quote lines.
A little rabbit’s imagination runs away with him.
