    I d give this book extra stars if I could 5 is so limiting, no for the amount of times the phrase she went boneless has made me laugh at completely random moments during my work day It s a perfect description of what toddlers do during a tantrum You know, when they collapse on the ground this is great fun in a public place making them nearly impossible to lift I also happen to love these illustrations, with simply rendered drawings superimposed on black and white urban scenery Brookly I d give this book extra stars if I could 5 is so limiting, no for the amount of times the phrase she went boneless has made me laugh at completely random moments during my work day It s a perfect description of what toddlers do during a tantrum You know, when they collapse on the ground this is great fun in a public place making them nearly impossible to lift I also happen to love these illustrations, with simply rendered drawings superimposed on black and white urban scenery Brooklyn, I presume An all time favorite

    While on a nostalgic level Mo Willems Knuffle Bunny A Cautionary Tale sure does resonate for I too once misplaced a treasured plush rabbit as a toddler , I really do not all that much like the accompanying illustrations Sorry, but I have always been rather easily creeped out by especially cartoon like images and little Trixie with her overly large and bulging eyes really does almost give me the proverbial willies and thus, while I can appreciate Mo Willems ingenuity and do like the combina While on a nostalgic level Mo Willems Knuffle Bunny A Cautionary Tale sure does resonate for I too once misplaced a treasured plush rabbit as a toddler , I really do not all that much like the accompanying illustrations Sorry, but I have always been rather easily creeped out by especially cartoon like images and little Trixie with her overly large and bulging eyes really does almost give me the proverbial willies and thus, while I can appreciate Mo Willems ingenuity and do like the combination of pictures and black and white Brooklyn photographs, I just do not enjoy the exaggerated caricature renderings all that much on a personal and aesthetic level.Now regarding the story itself, I in fact do totally and untterly identify with young Trixie s non verbal frustration, with the fact that she is trying so hard to make herself be understood that Knuffle Bunny has been left at the laundromat and that her father annoyingly and infuriatingly simply does not get it, never does notice that Knuffle Bunny is missing While some readers might well and indeed be annoyed at and frustrated with Trixie s tantrums and emotional outbursts, I for one feel muchannoyance at the father for continuously failing to notice the reason for his young daughter s outrageous behavior For in many if not most ways, the father really is utterly clueless and on an entirely personal level, I find it both sad and a bit angering that it takes repeated and frustrated almost violent outbursts of emotionality until the mother and even then, not the father realises that Trixie s toy, that her Knuffle Bunny has been left at the laundromat Trixie might be preverbal, but since her Knuffle Bunny is almost like a permanent attachment to her and for her, in my opinion, the father should have realised what is wrong if not immediately, then at least soon Three stars but with less cartoony and exaggerated illustrations, I probably would be rating Knuffle Bunny A Cautionary Tale with four stars

    Knuffle Bunny A Cautionary Tale is a Caldecott Honor book from Mo Willems, creator of Cartoon Network s Sheep in the Big City This book is about how a toddler named Trixie loses her Knuffle Bunny at the Laundromat and has a hard time trying to tell her dad that they lost Knuffle Bunny Knuffle Bunny A Cautionary Tale is truly one of the most brilliant children s books ever written that children will love for many years Mo Willems has truly done a brilliant job at writing and illustratin Knuffle Bunny A Cautionary Tale is a Caldecott Honor book from Mo Willems, creator of Cartoon Network s Sheep in the Big City This book is about how a toddler named Trixie loses her Knuffle Bunny at the Laundromat and has a hard time trying to tell her dad that they lost Knuffle Bunny Knuffle Bunny A Cautionary Tale is truly one of the most brilliant children s books ever written that children will love for many years Mo Willems has truly done a brilliant job at writing and illustrating this book about listening to your child when he or she is trying to tell you something important What made this book truly memorable was the fact that this book was based off a real incident that Mo Willems had with his daughter and the audience can really relate to the story as every parent at some point had an incident with their child that they could not understand what their child is trying to tell them and they try hard to listen, but the words that come out of a child s mouth at such a young age can be incomprehensible to the adult that they cannot really understand their child s needs and wants Mo Willems illustrations are extremely creative since the characters are silly looking and yet are pasted on photos of a real neighborhood in Brooklyn, making the illustrations look somewhat three dimensional Knuffle Bunny A Cautionary Tale is a brilliant book for children who also experience a time when they tried to tell their parents something important, but their speech was not clear enough for the parents to really understand them I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is nothing inappropriate about this book, unless you count Trixie s whining when she left her Knuffle Bunny.Review is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog

    Okay, so I debated adding the picture books I ve read because they are so short and when you ve worked in a children s library they can quickly add up That can be slightly misleading when the book count at the top says, you have read 1965 books That being said, I m only putting on my absolute favorites and what I consider to be quality children s literture People are always having babies and books make a good gift So here are my suggestions just in case you ve ever been tempted to pick up Okay, so I debated adding the picture books I ve read because they are so short and when you ve worked in a children s library they can quickly add up That can be slightly misleading when the book count at the top says, you have read 1965 books That being said, I m only putting on my absolute favorites and what I consider to be quality children s literture People are always having babies and books make a good gift So here are my suggestions just in case you ve ever been tempted to pick up one of those technicolor Dora the explorer board books that are found in the Wal mart check out aisle Those books are crap, even if the television show they re based on is educational and entertaining Okay, off my soapbox now Mo Willems is wonderful, his books are witty and clever and can easily be enjoyed by children and adults Better suited for pre school and up who can appreciate his style

    Heart rending, yet hilarious tale of a toddler who s not yet able to speak, and her attempts to communicate that her favorite toy has gone missing Trixie bawled She went boneless Have you ever tried to pick up a boneless child It s nearly impossible I like the combo of cartoony characters set against bw photos It s easy to see why this one has become a modern day classic.

    I really love the incorporation of photos of real places and the paintings not at all realistic of the characters and other objects that make up this book s illustrations.The story of a lost favorite toy of a preverbal child will strike a chord with young children.

    If your child has a blankie, stuffed animal or other comfort item, you will appreciate this little tale of a girl and her father doing laundry at the local Laundromat Mo Willems combines photographs of his own neighborhood in New York City, and superimposes his colorful drawings into the pictures What you get is a really effective storyboard In a most of candor, Willems admitted that he Photo shopped all the trash and debris out of the pictures when he noticed how dirty his neighborhood look If your child has a blankie, stuffed animal or other comfort item, you will appreciate this little tale of a girl and her father doing laundry at the local Laundromat Mo Willems combines photographs of his own neighborhood in New York City, and superimposes his colorful drawings into the pictures What you get is a really effective storyboard In a most of candor, Willems admitted that he Photo shopped all the trash and debris out of the pictures when he noticed how dirty his neighborhood looked What is so perfect about this book is the language nuances parents have with their children before they can speak, and the utmost importance those things of comfort really are to our children Speaking from experience, my younger son had a stuff Lambchop that went on every grocery store purchase, every doctor s visit, and every vacation we went on in a four year period of time While on vacation one year, we stopped at a store to pick up a few items, got in the car and drove 90 minutes down the road before Owen started asking for LeLe A quick look around the car and we were turning around to drive the 90 minutes back to the store, hoping and praying that LeLe was still there and that some other kids hadn t found her and made a claim on her Thankfully she was there, the hiccuping sobs stopped, and we were on our way again It was a small price to pay 4 1 2 hours, new juice packets and another snack to ensure my son s comfort and happiness So many parents and kids will relate to this charming and sweet story, and maybe even get a laugh out of it as you re all snuggled together and reading it while clutching a comfort thing, whatever that may be
