Bunny Christmas *****
by Rick Walton- Author & Paige Miglio- Illustrator
I’m joining Jain with my Edible Book Review at Food for Thought, a delicious blog for readers with an appetite~ for the written word and food.
I’m also joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday as part of this Edible Review.
I ran across this book at the library standing in line for early-voting in November, as the line wound around upstairs through the children’s section. If I have to stand in line to vote, there’s no better place than the library for me :-)
Prominently on display, I picked it up to thumb through, and was enamored with the illustrations and sweet story. To share this book, I pulled out my Fitz & Floyd Christmas Bunnies, that still after twenty years, make me as cheery as reading this book did~
Young readers~ pre-school through kindergarten age~ will cotton to this story, as a happy bunny family prepares for a Merry Christmas with all the trimmings. Mom & Dad, brother & sister, along with aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents come together for a joyful celebration. All family members share in the holiday preparations that make for a delightful tail ;-) that young readers will enjoy (& 50-year-old ones too!)
My Fitz & Floyd bunnies accompany Paige Miglio’s beautifully detailed illustrations. Paired with Rick Walton’s rhyming text, the two paint a heartwarming holiday portrait of family togetherness.
Bunnies are busy decking the halls. . .decorating a tree with strings of popcorn & candy canes, hanging lights and wreaths. . .
Wreath design hardboard and cork placemats frame my leaf embossed bowls.
I filled my pedestal Santa & Bunny bowl with greenery~ cedar, magnolia, juniper, along with some apples, nandina berries, pinecones and a few camellias that were blooming. . .
The bunnies satisfy their sweet tooth with carrot cake. . .
Visiting with Santa. . .
. . .and helping roll out dough to make sugar cookies~
Like a sugar cookie or slice of carrot cake, this book is a sweet treat to share with a young reader this Christmas~
Hop over to your library or bookstore and jumpstart your holidays~ this tail is guaranteed to make your spirits bright :-)
Thank you for your visit & to my hostesses:
