Over 18,000 preschoolers and kindergartners participated, choosing “Bunnies!!!” as their favorite. It’s been a heated battle to the end. In fact, we believe this may have been one of the tightest races in Missouri Building Block Award history! At the final hour, “Bunnies!!!” snuck past “Little Penguin Gets the Hiccups” by Tadgh Bentley and “Rex Wrecks It!” by Ben Clanton.
“Bunnies!!!” follows a lovable monster through the woods on his pursuit for — you guessed it — BUNNIES!!! A game of hide-and-seek hilariously ensues, magically crafted through bright illustrations and simple text. This book has quickly become a favorite read-aloud, beloved by both young and old.
