Discover a world of color with the adorable Quiet Bunny!
By Lisa McCue
In the brilliantly colorful follow-up to the bestselling Quiet Bunny, Lisa McCue’s delightful rabbit delivers a vibrant introduction to the world of colors in Quiet Bunny’s Many Colors (Ages 4 to 6).
Quiet Bunny loves the bright colors of spring: the yellow ducks, green frogs, and blue jays-everything but his own brown, wintry white fur. However, each attempt to change the color of his coat results in unintentionally humorous mishaps. Covering himself in yellow honey and dandelions makes the poor bunny sneeze. The thick red mud he coats himself in hardens under the warm sun, and Quiet Bunny can no longer hop. It takes the help of a wise old owl for Quiet Bunny to realize that it's the rainbow of colors—including his own—that makes the world so beautiful.
In The Green Mother Goose: Saving the World One Rhyme at a Time, Jan Peck and David Davis pioneer a uniquely green twist on the beloved characters of classic nursery rhymes. This quirky re-telling is a playful invitation to go green as Yankee Doodle travels eco-consciously, Old Mother Hubbard learns to shop local, and the Three Wise Mice search for clothes at thrift shops. Cheerful lyrics compliment Carin Berger’s fanciful collages created from ticket stubs, newspapers and other reused items. Peck and Davis’ practical earth-saving tips will entertain both children and adults through old-new classics like "Rub-a-Dub-Dub" and "There Was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe," making this picture book as enjoyable to quietly peruse over and over as it is to read aloud to a whole class. Printed on recycled paper with agri-based inks, with art made from creatively recycled materials, these delightful lyrics and illustrations are as organic as the message.
