PreS-Gr 1–Bunny’s book club has a new member, a child named Josie, who likes to recommend books to the club members and help Bunny with hard words. Josie will be starting a new school and is nervous that she won’t be able to make any friends. Bunny decides that since he is Josie’s friend, he should also go to school. On the way, the rest of Bunny’s book club members join him. While trying to find Josie at school, each of the animals peels off to explore their favorite activities (computers, gymnasium, science lab) one by one. When they finally meet back together and find Josie, she has already made some new friends, and so have they. The detailed illustrations provide a great deal of information for young readers to pore over. While perhaps not quite as cozy as its ode-to-libraries predecessor, this title will still charm young audiences.
VERDICT A comforting choice for readers nervously anticipating their own first day of school or who are worried about making new friends. Recommended for general purchase
