This is the first book that introduced me to Mo Willems. Kids love the illustrations and joining Trixie in saying her first words. ( )

This is such a great story for kids. Trixie and her dad go to a nearby laundromat to wash their clothes. Trixie takes along her beloved stuffed rabbit, Knuffle Bunny. In all the excitement of going with her dad to the Laundromat, Trixie realizes that Knuffle Bunny has been lost. Unfortunately, Trixie cannot make her dad understand! Dad takes Trixie home while the laundry washes and it is then that Trixie’s mom understands her and goes on the hunt for Knuffle Bunny. ( )

Trixie and her father head to local laundromat. Upon leaving, young Trixie realizes she has lost her beloved Knuffle Buuny. Having yet learned to talk, Trixie using all the skills in her power trys to tell her father that she is missing Knuffle Bunny. Father does not sem to understand the nature of the problem but mother quickly notices Knuffle Bunny's absence and they quickly return to the laundromat in search of it. Once they find it all returns to normal. This book points out the purpose and importance of communication and how and why both children and parents get frustrated. The illustrations are great and the simple text and story line would be great for preschool through kindergarten readers. ( )

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. ( )
