Unwrapping some sweet, sweet illustrations for you...

My Bookwrap...

First off let me say you cannot read this book and not fall in love with Little Rabbit.  He is just too adorable.  This interactive board book will be released Fall 2017.  It is simple, interactive and follows the bestseller, "Tickle My Ears" which was a phenomenon in Germany selling over 70K copies in under a year.  With strong word of mouth sales increased in the English language market.  

I personally love board books for pre-schoolers as they are tailor-made for little hands, perfect for chewing on by tiny slobbering mouths, and oh yes, even to read.  

This gem of a story invites the reader to help give this sweet guy a bath.  You get to prepare his bath, help apply the shampoo, swaddle him in a fluffy towel, and even blow dry behind his soggy ears... but wait... the blowdryer is broken.  Oh my... but no worries YOU can blow him dry.  Kids will love taking charge and making sure this kit is squeaky clean.

The illustrations are simple, expressive and humorous. The vibrant  colour pallet sports primary colours which draws the reader in and encourages him/her to participate Little Rabbit's bathtime ritual. 

 I think this book would be a perfect gift for a newborn.  Tuck it in a beautifully decorated basket brimming with soaps,  q-tips, a soft towel and perhaps a loveable stuffed bunny to welcome the special little bundle of joy into the world.    I highly, highly recommend this book to you.
