Buster Bunny loves to read. He loves to read about pirates and princes, trains and dinosaurs. His friends just cannot understand why he loves books so much; they all think books are boring and they would much rather play outside. But when rain starts to fall, Buster’s friends are stuck inside and despite their initial reticence, Buster, who knows his friends well, manages to find a book to match each friend’s interest, with magical consequences.
Bunny Loves to Read has got a really lovely message at its heart, which mirrors this famous quote by Paul Jennings perfectly :
Buster looks quite happy with himself at the end of the tale, and so he should. There is something magical about finding the right book for the right child. I think he should consider a career in librarianship, to be honest!The artwork is very child-friendly and there is a nice use of photographs as well as drawings. It is bright and enticing.
It is also a lovely tale about loving books and sharing that love with others.
