This is one of my favorite books to read to my son (1 year old). Such a sweet story with cute drawings on top of photos.

This is a very sweet and funny story about a little girl and her bunny who is very important to her. This is the first time I read a picture book from today’s generation. I think that this book is a wonderful story for every child, as well as for adults, as not only is it a reminder of how precious a toy is to a child, but it is a humourous and fun read! The illustrations are very funny, and there are sequels: Knuffle Bunny Too, and Knuffle Bunny Free. I think adults will enjoy reading anything by this author: Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, The Pigeon Needs A Bath, and The Pigeon Wants A Puppy. (submitted by KB)

Bestselling author, Mo Willems has created another wonderful children’s story. Knuffle Bunny is a wonderful children’s storybook about a young girl named Trixie and her lost bunny. When Trixie and her father take a trip to the Laundromat, Trixie realizes something, her Knuffle Bunny is gone. Join Trixie and her father as they retrace their steps to try and find Trixie’s Knuffle Bunny. This is a great children’s story for all ages, kids will love the colourful words, pictures, and even the characters. This is also a great read out loud book and I guarantee that it will bring many laughs. If you love Knuffle Bunny then be sure to read Knuffle Bunny 2 and 3. If you love Mo Willems then you should also read the Pigeon series and the Piggy and Elephant books. @readit12 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Another wonderful Mo Willems book to read aloud. The littles love hearing adults try out the nonsense language in this story ("Aggleflaggleklabble!") -- this will become an instant favorite that you will read again and again!

My children are age 3 and 6, and we finally read Mo Willem's Knuffle Bunny for the first time. (I am not sure how we neglected this for so many years!) The illustration method is original and refreshing: sepia-toned photos of Brooklyn with hand-drawn collage "cartoon-style" characters collaged on top. The story is nearly universal. A little girl loses her beloved stuffed-animal, and her parents recover it. Think: A Pocket for Courdory. But layered sweetly with language development and a good old-fashioned "boneless" (seemlingly irrational) tantrum on the street, it is a sweet statement about language development, communication and toddlerhood. When you close the book, you will turn to your spouse and reminisce about that time you forgot your child's "lovie" at the daycare over the weekend.

Any child - or parent - who has lost a much-loved comfort object will relate to the characters in this modern classic by award-winning author/illustrator Mo Willems. When tiny Trixie accidentally abandons her stuffed bunny at the laundromat, she frantically tries to tell her Daddy, but her garbled attempts at speech ("aggle flaggle klabble!”) fail, ramping up to an all-out, wild-eyed, crying-and-going-limp fit. The wonderfully expressive lines of Willems’ characteristic stylised cartoons complement the story perfectly, communicating Trixie’s distress with hilarious, heartrending clarity. Check out the further adventures of Trixie and Knuffle Bunny in Knuffle Bunny Too and Knuffle Bunny Free.
