Dear Bunny by Katie Cotton and Blanca Gomez (Frances Lincoln Children's Books)

From the moment you turn the first page in "Dear Bunny" you're entering the world as seen through a child's eyes, and the way that some children view even the seemingly ordinary and everyday as something special and wonderful.
So it is for the girl in this story, who decides to write her best bunny friend a letter, telling him all the things that make him special and how she cherishes all the time they spend together.
Come rain or shine, through happy times and sad, Bunny and Girl share their adventures together, hardly leaving each other's sides for a moment.
It's a great little story, describing how some children take each day as it comes, never worrying about the future or the past but existing purely in the moment and loving that moment while it lasts. Doubly so when they have a special friend and companion to look after (and to look after them too).
Charlotte's favourite bit: Bunny bedtimes!
Daddy's favourite bit: A book that feels like a warm snuggly bunny hug wrapped between two beautiful covers, full of whimsy and imagination.
