Booklist Review

Ages 3^-5. The subtitle is somewhat misleading. Young children will not be able to learn to tell time from this book. For one thing, the clocks are often too small and sometimes awkwardly placed. But this will start little ones thinking about the concept as a family of handsome rabbits goes through their day. The rhyming couplets recount how the bunnies rise at eight, dress themselves by nine, and are out pulling weeds at ten. The afternoon is for playing, resting, and being crafty. After dinner, "Bunnies think that books are heaven / Story time begins at seven." And just as eight is the time to get up, it's also bedtime. The richly colored artwork takes up almost every inch of the two-page spreads. Paige, the illustrator of Walton's So Many Bunnies (1998), provides a delightful crew of individualized family members set against a homey background full of eye-catching details. A possibility for themed story hours. --Ilene Cooper


Publisher's Weekly Review

Bunny Day: Telling Time from Breakfast to Bedtime by Rick Walton, illus. by Paige Miglio, collaborators on similar books about ABCs and counting (So Many Bunnies; One More Bunny), document a day in the life of rabbits as they teach how to tell time. " `Bunnies, it is getting late!'/ Father Rabbit says at eight," reads the opening page as the bunnies struggle to the breakfast table. The four-line stanza pattern repeats throughout, ending with bunnies getting tucked into bed (at eight o'clock at night). Comforting and idyllic watercolors reveal clock faces with hands that correspond to the appropriate time. (HarperCollins, $15.95 32p ages 3-up ISBN 0-06-029183-4; Feb.)(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-This story actually begins on the endpapers, long before breakfast. Father Rabbit and one of his bunnies are winding up a clock in the evening. The following pages show Mother Rabbit, early in the morning, enjoying what readers will discover is a rare moment of peace. Soon she wakes her five youngsters and the day begins. During the next 12 hours, the parents shepherd their bunnies through their daily routines and activities. Each spread is filled with humor and detail, and children will want to pore over the pictures. The inclusion of the hour of the day in each accompanying four-line stanza is casual and unforced. In fact, the rhythmic text doesn't miss a beat. In each illustration, a clock corresponding to the hour mentioned in the verse is depicted quite naturally-for example, a child playing with a pocket watch at lunch or a garden clock mounted on a wall. The tale comes full circle in the final scene with the parents relaxing with a cup of tea at the end of the eventful day. A book to be enjoyed at home and at preschool.-Susan Marie Pitard, formerly at Weezie Library for Children, Nantucket Atheneum, MA (c) Copyright 2010.
