Join the Bunny Family for a busy day in their home town, on a fun-filled farm adventure, and at the port for an exciting outing in this seek-and-find book where there is always something to discover. From the time they wake up until the time they go to sleep, there is so much to see and do. Don't forget to keep an eye out for that pesky Benny Badger—he is always up to no good! With a fresh and adorable illustration style, and so many details on every page, this picture book begs to be read again and again.

What can I say about this picture book? We loved it. Its a beautiful picture book with fantastic illustrations. The illustrations are all bright and colorful in my opinion.

Upon looking at the book you instantly think Richard Scary and if this is anything like that then I know kids will love it just as much as we do.

Busy Bunny Days takes part in three different parts of the city such as in the town, on the farm and at the port at various parts of the day basically between a 6am to 9pm day. Which I thought was really cute.

Another thing I really enjoyed was that your child can basically tell the story because at the top of each page is a few questions and you have to answer them and I think you could get a different story each time or from different children.

Another great thing is that it shows the time so kids also get to learn about time of day. I love that this is a learning book as well.

There is many characters involved in the book but they all blend so well within the story line.

Review/ At The Same Moment Around The World

At The Same Moment Around The World Format: Hardcover

When I first picked this up to read I have to say it was unique. It felt like a different kind of picture book. Which I think is always nice to encounter.

The book takes us around the world. The illustrations went perfectly with the story it was telling and I really liked that each picture works and flows with the following pages. Sometimes that never happens but this one did and I loved the book for that. I loved that the first illustrations was the same as the last with just a different text.

This is a great book that will teach kids about the different times zones we have in the world and what other people can be doing at that same exact time of day. We are all different but yet the same.

Another thing I loved about this book is that it comes with a map something you don’t see very often in a picture book and you can actually follow the story line with the map as it shows where the places are on the map.

Christmas Book Advent Calendar 2015

For the past few years I have been seeing the Christmas Book Advent Calendar and I have always wanted to do this. Not quite sure why I haven’t since we love books and getting books.

Hopefully I will be able to make this a new tradition and honestly its never to late to start a new holiday tradition right?

The Christmas Book Advent Calendar: What is it you ask?

Basically the idea behind this is you take 24  Christmas themed books (you can do picture books, chapter books etc but mostly picture books) and you wrap them up and label them 1 through 24.

So every day you get to open one Christmas book and read it with your child. Its a great way to spend quality time with them especially with the hustle and bustle of the holiday.

Over since Michael was a baby I always managed to get a new picture book for Christmas for him so we have quite the collection happening so I am excited to dig those out so we can read them together and there will be a few new ones bought this year to reach our goal of 24 books.

Would this be something you would do?

Check back tomorrow to see what our first book is.

Review/ Stay

Review/ StayStay! a Top Dog Story by Alex Latimer

Looking after Ben's dog, Buster, is no walk in the park. Buster is messy, he is naughty, he is EXHAUSTING! But Ben loves him more than anything. When Ben goes away, he tells Grampa exactly how to look after Buster. But has Ben remembered the most IMPORTANT thing?

I received this book for free from publisher/pr firm in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Its been a little while since I have reviewed a picture book and I have to admit that I miss doing them.

Stay by Alex Latimer is such a cute little book that I am sure all the kids will love to read. I know I enjoyed it.

The illustrations are really nice and colorful so when you are reading the book you can’t help but look around at everything on the page.

Ben has a dog named Buster and lets just say that Buster can be a handful all the time and loves to get into trouble. When Ben’s parents announce they are going on vacation but Buster will not because of his actions. Buster will be going to stay at Ben’s grand dads house.

Ben takes to writing notes for his grand dad and they include what Buster likes and doesn’t like, favorite scratching spots, and so much more and these notes continue to arrive even while Ben is on vacation because he loves Buster so much.

While Buster is with grand dad, grand dad takes it upon himself to start trying Buster into a better dog and when Ben comes home he loves the changes in Buster and he loves that grand dad even wrote Ben notes on how to keep things up.

Has Buster changed for the good? Or is there still a little of the old Buster inside?

If your looking for a fun picture book then I highly recommend this.
