I was a little disappointed that in the end, Bunny did smile. Probably because I thought the lesson was going to be that it's okay not to smile. Otherwise it's cute and could be a fun group read.

Pair with Can You Make a Scary Face? for an interactive story time with lots of giggles!

Big is working hard to make Bunny smile. He asks the audience (the reader) for assistance.

Reviewed from a library copy.

A cute premise that draws the reader in to help make Bunny smile by making funny faces. It does not explain why Bunny needs to smile in the first place.

This silly book revolves around a bear named Big who wants the reader/listener to help him get Bunny to smile. It's an interactive book where the reader/listener is encouraged to respond to the characters in the book. After reading this with several kindergarten classes and seeing their response, I can safely say that the book generally works well. Not all children chose to respond to the book but most of them did. And it is rather silly with plenty of places for young readers/listeners to repea ...more
