This captivating story unveils the love a father and mother have for their young girl who can not yet speak. When she goes with her father to the Laundromat, she looses her favorite stuffed animal but has no way of communicating it to her father. When the father and daughter arrive home, the mother immediately recognizes what her daughter is missing. The only way of communicating to the father that her favorite animal is missing is by crying and the father fails to realize what is missing. I would read this book to a group of pre-k to first graders because I feel as though they would understand what It means to miss something and the concept of motherly instinct. ( )

This book is all around great. I could see reading this to a class, but I see it being great fun at home. Oh the trouble that occurs when Daddy is in charge. It makes me think of when my ballet students come to class with crazy messy hair and the excuse "moms out of town... dad did my bun". This is a funny and cute book to share with students or children and it is great for making predictions. I love Mo's method of illustrating in the knufffle bunny books. The combination of photographs and his iconic illustrations is brilliant. Definitely a skill that students could practice themselves. It would be a fun artistic connection to the text to give them each a photo and have them illustrate a character and develop a scenario. ( )

This book would be good for reading with expression and predictions. I think students will like this book because of the pictures; they are a combination of sepia photos and ink drawings. Students will also be able to relate to loosing important toys. ( )

Summary: Trixie, a young toddler goes to the laundry mat with her father. She loves the adventure of walking to the laundry mat and putting the coins in the machines. On the way home, however, Trixie starts crying because she's forgotten her most loved possession, Knuffle Bunny. Trixie's dad later finds Knuffle Bunny in the wet laundry.

Personal reflection: I liked this book because everyone has loved childhood possessions that we remember throwing fits about in public places when lost. This book is relatable and funny, but I don't know how relevant it would be in the classroom if not teaching about basic lifetime concepts.

Class use: I would use this book as an example of building character and an open discussion of objects that have shaped us in a way in our lifetimes.
