Josie B.
Here comes a bunny
The first to stray
Out of April
And into May.

And here comes a robin
The first to fly
Out of June
And into July.

Here are the fireflies
Last to remember
The end of August
And first of September.

And here comes a caterpillar
The last to creep
Out of summer
And into sleep.

--Margaret Wise Brown
From Nibble Nibble

A real live bunny is coming to storytime this summer, and I will be reading "Song of the Bunnies" from this collection and possibly this lovely "Song of Summer". There is a flannel...more
Margaret Wise Brown's poems have been used in many different books. This book is a collection of a variety of her poems accompanied by colorful illustrations. Her poems are about animals, the weather, bugs, all subjects that can be playful and enjoyable by children. One of the poems from this collection, Bumble Bee, has been made into it's own book. The poems are easy to read and understand and can make for a fun story time or poetry lesson.
Nibble Nibble features several poems about playful bunnies in nature. The poems describe the actions of bunnies and feelings of love.
Nibble Nibble is a collection of poems published by Margaret Wise Brown several decades ago. In tribute to her, the artist, Wendell Minor, published another edition of her book with his gorgeous illustrations. The illustrations wonderfully accompany the peaceful words written by Margaret Wise Brown.
This is a perfect book to read to young children. The flow of the...more

I love the book Goodnight Moon, which was written by the same author. This is what attracted me to this book originally. I really liked the fact that each poem related to nature and love. The poems were very "song like" and had a fun rhythm to them. They would be fun poems to read as an introduction to poetry for young children.
6 star book!

Wendell Minor illustrates a little golden book! that's what this book would have been fifty years ago. Margaret Wise Brown poetry and Wendell Monor bunnies! this is better than anything on the nytimes bestseller list.

there is even an illo of a fox looking like he's trying to recover from a hangover.
Awesome poems for kids (and adults)!

Recommends it for: bunny lovers of any age, folks with little kids in their lives
I am a bunny person through and through, and MWB's poems hold a special place in my heart, plus they are a blast to read aloud to little ones. Wendell Minor's illustrations are endearing, making this a throughly delightful book.
The writing is too repetitive and boring to read. The illustrations were well done. For the pictures alone, I'd look at this book again. Otherwise, I consider this one a dud.
This is a nice book of children's poetry. What I like most about the book is the illustrations. They are so pretty and the texture of the bunnies almost looks real.
Beautiful illustrations and poems that are fun to read and hold a little kid's attention.
Five poems about little bunnies with illustrations perfect for story time.
The illustrations are a five star but the story wasn't that good.
I want to buy this one, & use the amazing poems as artwork!
What a sweet book with beautiful illustrations.

I heart MWB.

Margaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories during her life, but she is best known for Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny. Even though she died nearly 60 years ago, her books still sell very well.

Margaret loved animals. Most of her books have animals as characters in the story. She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them. Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or p...more
