I have probably read this book aloud 100+ times. It is, far and away, my nephew's favorite book. If you are dedicated to reading books to toddlers and doing all the voices, this is such a fun read. The plot is just about a bunny-loving monster who is sad as he walks around a forest seeing everything but his ultimate favorite. He loses it with excitement when he sees the bunnies. That's it. It's not groundbreaking but it is full of heart and has a cute message. I never mind reading it, even after ...more

First of all, the monster in this book is in the running for cutest monster ever.

Such a sweet little guy. He's just a little overly enthusiastic.

Okay, a lot enthusiastic.

Will the bunnies ever understand that he just wants to LOOOOOVE them? (Of course, they will. It's a children's book. And the ending is super cute.)

This was hysterical. The little monster in this book is walking through the woods when he spots ..... BUNNIES! No, not bunnies - BUNNIES! The bunnies on the other hand are not interested in being the monster's new found friends. As he searches for them everywhere he becomes sadder and sadder that he can't find them and the bunnies realize he just wants to play. Then little monster sees ... BIRDIES!!! Great comic read for toddlers and very colorfully illustrated. ...more

This story is about a blue monster/dragon/unidentifiable creature that is walking through the wilderness. He says hello to the trees, the sky, and the clouds. However, when he sees a group of bunnies, he freaks out and chases after them! The bunnies run away in fear, hiding from the monster. The monster continues to walk along, saying hello to the sticks and the dirt. He falls asleep feeling sad when the bunnies sneak up behind him. When he wakes up, we discover the real reason that he was chasi ...more

For some reason this very simple picture book put the biggest smile on my face! This story involves a friendly monster who walks around a forest saying “hello” to everything that he sees. When he sees a group of bunnies, he gets overly excited and accidentally scares them. After looking for them unsuccessfully, he continues on. The bunnies watch him being friendly toward everything and realize that he is kind, just overly-enthusiastic. The book has a happy, surprise ending! I absolutely l

I wanted a funny, heart warming, memorable book for a baby gift; a book that both mom and baby would enjoy now and when baby is a toddler and beyond. I asked my local children's librarian...she recommended this book as well as a list of others. This book made me laugh, it made me sad for the lonesome monster whose enthusiasm at first scared the bunnies, and then it made me laugh again. It is fun to look for the bunnies who are hiding, you want to cheer up the lonesome monster, and you want to hu ...more

> I think students will love the lively illustrations in this story and will be able to relate to the woes and emotions of the main bunny in the story
>I love the story because it represents the concept of friendship which is very important for students;
> The bunny in the story is very expressive and enthusiastic which gives you the opportunity as the teacher to get really animated with your voice and movements and children will love that and be more engaged with the story line

This is a book about a Monster, who is on a walk in the woods and spots some bunnies, but he scares them off because he gets so excited- an action every kid reading this book, with access to wildlife, can relate to. This story is charming, easy to read aloud and is a huge hit with my three year old. The theme isn’t mind blowing nor are the illustrations but hey, the target audience here really likes this story, so 5 stars it is.
An overenthusiastic monster wanders through the countryside saying hello to everything. When he sees the bunnies, he is so excited and so loud that the bunnies run away. The poor monster goes on with his walk, trying to find someone to play with, but he keeps scaring the bunnies away. Until he is sitting quietly and that’s when the bunnies approach and they begin to play.

A good example of how pictures tell a great deal of the story.
Little dialogue, larger than life VERY colorful illustrations show off this cute story about the world's kindest and friendliest monster who spots a group of bunnies in the woods, but without them, he's sad. Can they be friends?

Super cute story!

Great for young readers to read out loud to their grownups, also makes a very fast paced storytime too (could be great with puppets!)

This book is absolutely adorable. It's a great book to read to kids because
It teaches acceptance
It has really engaging pictures that are colorful and will keep children hooked and interested
It also had minimal text and expressive text, which will also keep children engaged in the plot and what is going to happen next.

Used for bunny themed storytime.

Bunnies, Bunnies! BUNNIES!!! Tells the tale of a monster who is enamored with bunnies. But with all the monster's enthusiasm the bunnies are timid and a bit scared. The monster is sad, but happily the bunnies eventually come around to be friendly with the monster. Until the monster discovers BIRDIES!

Perfect lead in to do the Birdie Dance during storytime!

I love Declan!! He's so excited! Embracing life to the fullest, and all that.

This is a fun storytime read, with plenty of chance for silly voices (how can you be as emotional as Declan without silly voices?) Big, clear, and adorable pictures, too. I'd pull it out for a storytime on monsters, bunnies, or just on excitement/emotions.

A monster cheerfully enters the wood, saying hi to everything he sees. Then he spies BUNNIES!!! and in his enthusiasm, scares them away. It takes a few more encounters and a sad monster for the bunnies to realize he just wants to play with them.

Very cute and silly illustrations.

There are some picture books where one can imagine cuddled up with a tot, reading a story, enjoying a good giggle and silliness. This is one of those books.

A little monster loves the things around him and bids them hello. But he especially loves...Bunnies!

This is a super simple, but hilarious board book. Perfect for toddlers and preschoolers, but also a great easy reader text for early elementary schoolers. I love books like this where the author is able to do so much with only a few words. Effective, impressive, and funny.

This book is a great one for children to be exposed to. Although the words are somewhat simple, there is a clear theme that can be built upon. The pictures in this book are very vivid and help in telling the story, which makes for a high-quality book.

This was pretty cute, and kids will like it. But for those parents that grew up in the 90's...the illustrations will remind you of the Teletubbies. Cute and funny, yet still a little weird. ...more
