Hush-a-Bye Bunny is the perfect bedtime story to share with your little one. The book traces Baby Bunny’s bedtime routine from tidy-up time to bath time and story time. The familiarity makes it comforting. The shared, cosy moments between Mommy Bunny and baby are tender and heartwarming. The gorgeous illustrations capture this beautifully – the cuddles, the laughter, the eye contact – Baby Bunny really is the centre of his mommy’s world.
Hush-a-Bye Bunny is marketed as a story designed to help ease separation anxiety but, whether or not your child suffers from these fears, I think the sentiments the book expresses are relevant and reassuring to all children at bedtime. Mommy offers to “hug away worries and kiss away tears” and promises to love baby forever.
I love this story and it’s one that Sam and I enjoy as part of his bedtime routine.
Suitable from birth
