Our Favorite Books: Knuffle Bunny

December 6, 2006


One of my favorite things about this book is that it takes place in Brooklyn where I used to live. Of course, that was before I got married and had my daughter. However I remember the torturous trips to the laundromat like they were yesterday. Lugging the overstuffed laundry duffel four flights of stairs down a wal-up brownstone and then dragging it four blocks through the park was so unbearable that I only did laundry every two weeks, which of course made the whole experience even worse.

Mo Willems’ Knuffle Bunny is about a trip to the laundromat with Trixie, the charming toddler. The illustrations of the characters are set against black and white photography of actual places in Brooklyn, which brings a level of reality to the drama that ensues. The book is the perfect length for adults to read without falling asleep and keeps babies, toddlers and preschoolers alike entertained. You will definitely get repeated requests for it.
