“Silvestro and Mai-Wyss make plain the joys of intellectual curiosity and exploration, and their message is clear: Libraries and schools are wonderful places to learn, grow, and seek your joy.”—Kirkus

“In this appealing story, Silvestro offers a new twist on the familiar first-day jitters theme by switching from the child’s perspective to the outsiders’ point of view. . . . Colorful illustrations set a buoyant tone for this endearing sequel to Bunny’s Book Club.”—Booklist

“Jam-packed with comedic details (art supplies get stuck in Porcupine’s quills; Frog demonstrates his jumping-rope prowess), Mai-Wyss’s busy pictures heighten the geniality of this celebration of friendship and school.”—Publishers Weekly 

“A comforting choice for readers nervously anticipating their own first day of school or who are worried about making new friends.” —School Library Journal

Unwrapping the Story

Bunny and his friends from Bunny's Book Club make a return appearance in "Bunny's Book Club Goes to School."  

Every week the group of friends meet in the local town library on Saturday morning for their weekly book club gathering.  Josie, their human friend, confides in the group that she has the going-back-to -school jitters.  Bunny sensing her anxiety steps up to support her and says he will accompany her to ease her fears.  Realizing the beauty of lending his support to their friend the other animals decide to join in and add their moral support too. What a great group of friends she has! 

Readers who may be feeling the same as Josie discover the fun and excitement of attending school. It is a place to learn, be with your friends,  make new ones, and have fun along the way. The story is heartwarming and the illustrations are beautiful. They are detailed, animated and expressive.  This book would make a wonderful gift for those returning back to school after their summer hiatus if they too are experiencing apprehension and nervousness.  I highly recommend this wonderful book.

Meet the author

Annie Silvestro loves books. She loves them so much she reads and writes as much as possible and can often be seen shuffling piles of them around so she has a place to sit or somewhere to put her teacup. She is also a hugger with a very loud laugh. She lives with her family near the beach in New Jersey.

About the Illustrator 

My name is Tatjana, and I am a freelance illustrator, designer, maker and teacher.
I was born in Switzerland, and although I've now lived the longest part of my life in the United States, I think being Swiss still defines a lot of who I am. I love to travel and have lived in quite a few places, luckily there are still many more parts of the world for me to explore. I've always loved to read and draw, and being an illustrator still seems like the perfect way to combine the two.  I love the challenge of working on unique projects with a variety of clients, and my illustrations have been published in books, magazines and cards in the US and abroad.
Today I live with my family in sunny South Carolina, USA.
