The ABC Bunny takes children through the alphabet with each letter and has one kind of animal.

This book is a really good book for children who are just learning the alphabet because they put each letter with an animal so they will remember.

For this book, I could have the children think of another
Show More
animal that begins with that letter.
Another extension would be have the children draw that animal with the letter and see the different ways each child expresses that animal.

The ABC Bunny is a book about a bunny and his journey through the forest. He see's all kinds of animals and different scenary. The alphabete travels along with his journey going through each letter and naming something that is happening.
This book remined me of books that I read when I was little.
Show More
I lived in Germany and spoke german first so I have a lot of alphabete books in English because I had to go to American school. So it brought back a lot of memories for me and want to read it to my son.
i think this book would only be good for a younger audience. It tells a simple story that the children can follow. I would have them make their own story and go through the alphabete that way. I would also have them think of othe ways you can make an alphabete book.

This book would be good for kindergarten learning the alphabet. It has a fun song the class could learn how to sing. It would be fun to make your own alphabet book after reading this one.

This is a great book for last kindergarteners and early 1st graders to read to emphasize letters and letter sounds. The book is about a bunny and involves all of the letters to make a cute poem about the bunny. The pictures are not the best, but the poem definitely makes up for it. I would

recommend this book as a read aloud and for the students to read individually.

Originally published in 1933 by the same author of Millions of Cats. It's an ABC book with a song to go with it written by the author's sister and hand lettered by her brother that appears at the end.

This book begins with a bunny sleeping in her bed. All of a sudden, an apple falls onto the bunny and she runs away. Throughout the entire book, the bunny is going to different places and experiencing and seeing all sorts of things. The bunny sees frogs, lizards, kittens, and experiences a bad
Show More
storm with hail. The buuny talks about how she was getting hungry and came upon a garden to she ate some lunch. In the end, the bunny makes it back to bunnytown. This book is great for teaching the alphabet because the first letters on the pages go in alphabetical order (A for apple, B for bunny, etc.). I really enjoyed this book and thought it was fun to read.

In this book Wanda Gag had elaborated each letter of the alphabet to describe the characteristics of rabbits. Gag also had pictures of the rabbits doing as the word would say.

This book seems older than most, but it has a main idea that catches children's attention, and that is bunnies. Children

absolutely love animals.

With this book I could read it to the children at daycare because the children always see little bunnies hoping around outside on the playground. I could also read this book when it is Easter time.

I thought this was a well orchestrated book for content. I think the pages needed more color, but that it wasn't distracting to the reader. It introduces letters using animals for a differnt aspect. For example; it's told by a bunny and how each letter corresponds to its daily activities and

interactions with these animals.

This was a cute book. The illustrations were interesting because they are in black and white. This book teaches children their ABC's in a fun and natural way. The ryhming was not to long and repititious. The book seemed to flow without being boring or mundane. I would definatley read this book to a

This book goes through the alphabet using simple words that begin with that letter. The book also rhymes the words within the descriptions as the bunny in the book goes on many adventures and meets different animals along the way.

This book is about an adventure that a bunny takes when he gets lost. Each page uses a letter of the alphabet to describe the bunny’s encounters. In the end, the bunny makes it home, safe and sound.

This is a very interesting book. I enjoyed the illustrations. The only color used in the book is
Show More
red. The only time that red is used is to color the letters of the alphabet.

This would be a great book to use when learning the alphabet. It is also a great book to use when learning to rhyme. After reading this book I would hand the children a book of their own made up of twenty-six pages. The assignment is to wriet their own book using a page for each letter of the alphabet.

Cute black and white sketches depict the ABC's bunny rabbit style.

What a lovely book for young children. ABC Bunny creatively displays the alphabet in story form. In the little bunny's many encounters with other critters it lays the groundwork for a great nature study. There is a cute little song for children who like to sing as well as be read to! The

illustrations are enticing and full of action. Written in a very original way to introduce the alphabet to young children.

The ABC Bunny is a very cute story about an adventurous bunny who embarks on a wondrous tale through the forest, with a little help from the ABC's. As you read the words, your mind kind of goes along with the beat of the song, as shown on the first page of the book.

Personal Reaction:

thought this book had a very happy feel to it. Kids could learn a lot from this book, not just from the alphabet, but from the actual pictures in the story.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1. Learning the ABC's
2. Learning about rabbits.

This is a great illustrated book that shows the story of a bunny who leaves his home and goes out on an adventure through the whole alphabet. I have loved this book since I was a kid myself, and it was a joy to be able to reread it again for educational purposes. An early Childhood educator might

This book is about the alphabet. It shows each letter in the alphabet in large red font, while the rest of the book is black and white. This book also uses rhyming word and words that begin with each letter of the alphabet. This book could also be sung.

me teach my daughter her letters. As we read the book, she picks out each letter. The are easy to pick because the letters are larger than the actual words on the page. The letters are also red.

Classroom Extensions:
This book could be read to help children learn to recognize the letters in the alphabet.
You could read this book to older children and teach them the alphabet in different languages.
When I read this book to kindergarteners, I taught them the alphabet in sign language.

The book was an alphabet book that uses each letter to name an animal and what they are doing. The letters are used to describe what the bunny sees and encounters as his day goes on. He comes upon interesting animals, he eats, plays and then goes back home.
I liked how the
Show More
author used the alphabet to tell a story and had an easy flow to it. It uses rhyme throughout the book which helps to describe the setting. The letters stand out in the color red that helps children recognize them. I would have preferred the book be in color. I'm not into black and white books, they seem boring.
1. Practice rhyming words that are age level appropriate to what they are reading.
2. Talk about the animals and their characteristics. Ex: how they look, feel, what they eat.

We go through Bunnies day with him. While going through the alphabet, we see the things that bunnies see and the things he does.

I would give the children foam letters, glue, construction paper, and let them make a collage using the letters. We could learn our “ABC’s” in sign language.

Holds up well, not sentimental, feels nostalgic but not old-fashioned. The art was truly poetic, and realistic (again, not sentimental or cutesy). I loved that some of the Words for the Letters were verbs as most alphabet picture-books rely on nouns.
