Maybelle, Bunny Of The North

The illustrations are cute, but not extraordinarily so.


Little Kid Reaction

My boys liked the book enough to look at the pictures, but it wasn't a favorite.

Parent Reaction

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.

Type of Book:
This is a big-print picture book for first grade readers.
Educational Themes:

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.
