WorthyKids/Ideals Launches Series about an Adventurous Bunny Learning to Do the Right Thing [Review & 2-book Giveaway]

No, No, Bunny (March 7, 2017; ISBN 9780824916510; $7.99; 16 pp), Little Bunny has been taking things that don’t belong to him: pennies from Mama’s purse, a friend’s toy car, and a candy bar from the store. Taking everything seemed like a good decision at the time, but now Little Bunny feels sad. He confesses to his Mama and returns the items to their owners, learning that doing what’s right is always best.

Uh-Oh, Bunny (March 7, 2017; ISBN 9780824916503; $7.99; 16 pp) finds Little Bunny being a bit careless: drawing on walls, knocking over a plant, tearing pages from a book. When Mama asks him about the messes, Little Bunny chooses to be honest, which makes Mama happy. With Mama’s help, Little Bunny cleans up each mess. Preschoolers will learn, in a gentle, non-didactic way, that telling the truth is always best.

My thoughts: Both of the Adventurous Bunny books are charming, fun reads that teach young bunny (and young human toddlers) that there are just some things they shouldn't do. The lessons are sweetly taught in the simple language and sweet illustrations.

As this Adventurous Bunny explores his world, he learns to do the right thing and his mother encourages him in the right way.

No, No, Bunny specifically focuses on wrongful acts that Bunny must learn to choose to not do such as taking things that do not belong to him.

Uh-oh, Bunny specifically focuses on Bunny's careless acts that result in his breaking or messing up things. Bunny learns to recognize how his compulsive acts cause problems.

These make nice gift books or teaching books for the young child.

  1. I used how the boys treat each other. When the other treats them wrong or badly, the three of us talk about how it feels and why it is bad.

  2. We teach, discuss, and model proper care of belongings, no matter who they belong to.

  3. I teach by leading by example :)


  4. I try teaching them right from wrong how important it is to be respectful to everyone and love each other and most important to communicate...

  5. When you’re in a situation where your child is disrespectful, that’s not the ideal time to do a lot of talking about limits or consequences. At a later time you can talk with your child about his behavior and what your expectations are.

  6. it's constant work to teach children to be respectful.

  7. Leading by example is a great way. We try to teach them to treat others as they would like to be treated. Thanks!

  8. We teach the kids by setting a good example in the things we do ourselves. We also teach them to ask to use other people's things and not to just take. And that the things we have are a blessing and we need to take care of them because others are not so fortunate.

  9. This is a subject requiring lots of patience but empathy is so important and you'll get far in life by being kind and considerate. I struggle guiding my kids with this, I feel like every day we have another teaching opportunity in this area!

  10. These look really cute! Thanks so much for linking up at Booknificent Thursday on this week!

  11. I think they learn by example. Parents should always be looking for any opportunity to teach kids to be responsible which will give them a sense of responsibility and pride and to also take care of others things. These opportunities also help build commpassion and empathy.

  12. I tell him it's not his and give him something that is his.

    I show my kids how to take care of my things and that itself serves as a model.
