Weekly Trip to the Library

Pat the Bunny by Dorothy Kunhardt

Dorothy Kunhardt’s Pat the Bunny , published in 1940, is one of the bestselling children’s books of all time. This week at the book store my 13-month old charge picked it out amongst a huge display of children’s books. Pat the Bunny (Touch and Feel Book)is a great first book for kids. It contains things to touch, things to move, things to smell, and hidden surprises to peek at.

To add to the fun, pick up the Pat the Bunny Book & Plush (Touch-and-Feel) set. This gift set includes the book and a soft, baby-safe velour bunny toy that is loyal to the quirky bunny illustration in the book.

The newest addition to the Pat the Bunny series, the How Big is Bunny (Puppet Book), is just as impressive. It features a soft bunny puppet in the center of the book that helps brings the story to life. It was a wise choice to add an interactive component to such a classic series. Children love putting their fingers in the holes to work the bunny and act out the simple yet classic lines. The Pat the Bunny puppet book makes for a fun reading experience for all involved. It will hold the attention of young infants and make a great introduction to reading. Packaged in its own box, How Big is Bunny (Puppet Book)makes the perfect baby gift.

Nannies should consider keeping copies of these books to bring with them on any extra babysitting jobs with infants and toddlers for a great way to have fun together.



  1. I do love these books!

  2. All my charges love this book- however it's not made very well, and since it's loved so much and played with/read/chewed on- the books always falls apart quickly.Wish they'd improve the design and make it more durable.
