Book Review | Mr. Bunny’s Adventure by Alisha Ricks

mrbunnysadventureMr. Bunny’s Adventure tells the tale, including illustrations, of a bunny in search of his lost carrot. This adventure is quite simple: While riding on an airplane, a rabbit drops his carrot into a forest. There is said to be a resident giant, thus presenting potential danger in carrot retrieval for said rabbit. (adventure ensues)…

Unfortunately, this book is not as polished as I was hoping. As other reviewers have noted, the illustrations are simplistic and repetitive, not adding much to this picture book. The text is also lacking, not just in the story itself, which may have been more appropriately turned into a poem, but in grammar and correctness. I would consider reading this book to a child who cannot read, but for learning to read, this book may be more of a hindrance than a teaching tool. This is certainly my own opinion, but may be of use to other parents looking for books to improve literacy. Check for a copy from a library near you or find the ebook online.

I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to the author/publisher for participating in the giveaway.
