This is the second Mo Willems story I have included in my Media Log. This book is an award winner for a very good reason. it is a story that all primary students can connect with. Little Trixie joins her daddy on a fun trip to the Laundromat but disaster hits when she leaves her favorite bunny behind and she doesn't have the language skills to communicate her mistake. En eclectic mix of animated characters set against the backdrop of black and white photography, this is a super fun read aloud for primary students and would also be very accessible for ESL readers.

This cute book tells the story of a baby girl who loses her stuffed rabbit at the laundry mat. The illustrations were perfectly positioned over sepia toned photographs to show Willems's characters in a real world setting. I really liked the juxtaposition of the two styles of artwork on each page. The book has a few sentences of easy words on each page, so beginning readers should be able to read it on their own with little assistance from adults. I really liked that this book introduced to children that although babies babble instead of producing real words, they are still trying to communicate. This can encourage readers with infants in their families or home life to think about what the baby could really need and how he or she could help instead of just plugging their ears and complaining while the baby screams.

This book was designed so beautifully and I loved it. I loved how the author uses real life items, streets, and parks as part of the illustrations of the book. I like how that creates a nice contrast to really make the characters of the book pop out. It creates a different element that draws readers in, because it is so unique. The main message for the reader is that once you put your mind to something, you will be able to express that in one way or another. I also really enjoyed all of the sounds expressed throughout the book, because they actually depicted someone learning to talk. ( )

I liked this book for the photographs and illustrations. This story has real photographs with characters drawn on top. I like how the images in the story are different then most have seen in a book. I also like how they enhance the story, by making it more personal. For example when Trixie and her dad are walking through the park, readers could relate to walking through a park. I also like the writing of the story, mainly how it is organized. I love how there are voice bubbles, for when Trixie is trying to talk. The big message of the book was to be responsible for your things. ( )

"Knuffle Bunny" is a hilarious realistic fiction that follows a very small child who can't even talk yet. She walks with her daddy all around town to the laundromat. After they'd put the laundry in the wash, they begin to walk home. However, Trixie suddenly asks herself, "Where is Knuffle Bunny?!" She puts up a huge fuss trying to tell her daddy that she lost her beloved bunny, but she can't seem to get the message through to him! When she finally gets home, her mommy realizes what is wrong right away. The three go running back to the laundromat and begin frantically searching for Knuffle Bunny. At last, daddy pulls out all the laundry, and there is "KNUFFLE BUNNY!" And those were the first words Trixie ever said. ( )
