Children will love this comical tale about bunny who just happens to be a rescue worker in-training. As Rescue Bunny endures a series of tests required to pass the training, you'll find children charmed and laughing at the illustrations, text and dialogue found throughout. This light-hearted read is sure to be a hit with all!

This beautifully illustrated book is wonderful for beginning readers, as well as bunny lovers! Children are introduced to the bunnies' bedtime routine with simple, (often times) rhyming words that are descriptive of whatever activity is currently taking place ("chomp, munch, gobble, crunch" - as the bunnies are having a snack). This would allow for children to really make up a story using the pictures and to become actively engaged in the reading process. And of course, it would also be a great bedtime story to share!

Along with these two titles, include in your gift basket:
