Maybelle is a bunny who lives in Alaska. You follow her day in the richness of the Alaskan frontier, including the features that make Alaska unique (flora, fauna, transportation, etc.).
For a picture book, it offers some new material (Alaska, girls playing with trucks). It also has a wweet ending where the bunny gets tucked into bed after a busy day.
The illustrations are cute, but not extraordinarily so.
My boys liked the book enough to look at the pictures, but it wasn't a favorite.
I liked it OK. It is not easy to find books with Moose in it, and it was awesome to see a little girl bunny playing with trucks. It was an interesting read, and very cute.
This is a big-print picture book for first grade readers.
With young children, you can use this book for object identification; it is also nice to introduce them to Alaska, and its flora and fauna.
6 to 9
4 to 8
Read with boys 3 and 5 years old.
Borrow. This is a sweet book, but it doesn't have that "wow" factor you'd want in your personal library.
