Posted on Monday, November 13, 2017 by Josh

Wolfie the Bunny book coverThe Bunny family comes home to find a bundled wolf baby on their front door. Oh, what joy! Mama and Papa are smitten with the baby, but their daughter, Dot, is not convinced. “He’s going to eat us all up!” she cries, but Mama and Papa are too busy taking pictures of cute little baby Wolfie to listen. Is Dot right? Is the Bunny family putting themselves in harm’s way by taking a newborn wolf into their home?

The Missouri Building Block nominee “Wolfie the Bunny,” written by Ame Dyckman and illustrated by Zachariah OHora, is a silly story with humor throughout. The pacing is excellent and is perfect for reading aloud, making it a real winner for storytime. It also features bunnies wearing cute outfits! What’s not to love?

Once you have read at least five Missouri Building Block Picture Book Award nominees, help your child vote for their favorite.

After grade school I lost a little bit of passion for reading. In college, though, I found the library, and, in a lot of ways, the library found me! Now I read, discover, and imagine more often, and I’m healthier and happier for it.
