Baby Book Club Review: Wolfie the Bunny

Wolfie the Bunny

This week’s favourite addition to the laden bookshelves is Wolfie the Bunny, a sweet tale about accepting difference in a family and a brilliant subversion of lupine stereotypes. When Dot’s parents take in a foundling cub, the bunny is beside herself: “HE’S GOING TO EAT US ALL UP.” He doesn’t though, but he does eat all the carrots, and a trip to the supermarket for supplies gives the unusual siblings a terrific bonding opportunity.

The illustrations are thick with unexpected detail, and my boys were particularly taken with the back fly-leaf cover: a reverse glimpse of Wolfie with his tail popping out of his baby-gro. Dyckman’s text is great to read aloud, and the themes will resonate with anyone in blended families or adopted/fostered children. Recommended for 3+ (though my 2 year-old really loved it).
