Summary: In this book, a little girl named Trixie and father go on an adventure to a laundry mat. While there, Trixie helps her dad with the laundry and plays with her stuffed animal, Knuffle Bunny. However, on the way home, Trixie realizes she lost her stuffed animal. She starts throwing a fit and her father does not understand why since Trixie has not learned how to talk. The whole way, Trixie is making a scene and as soon as she gets home, her mom asks where Knuffle Bunny is. Trixie, her father, and her mother run back to the laundry mat to search for it. Luckily, they were able to find it at the end and Trixie was reunited with Knuffle Bunny.

Review: I thought this book was great and really touched on how important comfort objects are to young children. Therefore, I think the main message of this book is not worry if you loose something because eventually it will turn up. When Trixie lost Knuffle Bunny, she was very concerned and threw a fit. However, at the end of the book, Trixie was reunited with what was lost. This can be reassuring to young children who also have comfort objects because they can relate back to their own experiences. Young kids will be able to realize that everything is misplaced now and again, but in the end, everything works out. ( )

About a little child that's attached to a stuffed animal, stuffed animal is put into the laundry and all he** breaks loose. Could be a good read for someone that is still attached to a stuffed animal and has anxiety without it.

This was a hilarious book about a girl who is running errands with her dad and she loses a stuffed animal bunny. When she finds out she lose her stuffed animal she throws a huge fit and starts to cry. She starts to look for her stuffed animal with her dad by revisiting her footsteps and they end up finding the stuffed animal at the laundry mat.

This is an adorable story! The mixture between the black and white photos and colorful illustrations really make the book pop and are a unique way to have illustrations. The dialog also helps to show the disconnect in language between parents and children that sometimes happens, not only at pre-word stages of life but across the board. It’s seriously a cute story and can even introduce kids to what a Laundromat is if they’ve never heard or seen one before. Kids will enjoy both the illustrations and how the author writes Trixie’s dialog in the story. ( )

I loved this book because the story was very relatable. In the book, Trixie went on an adventure with her Daddy to the Laundromat. On the way home Trixie realized she left Knuffle Bunny at the Laundromat, but could not communicate with her Daddy that she did so. As a child I also had a favorite stuffed animal that went everywhere with me so I related to how Trixie felt in the story. I liked how the story was about an adventure and took a dramatic turn when Trixie left her Knuffle Bunny at the Laundromat. It was also suspenseful because who knew if Trixie was going to find Knuffle Bunny? The book contained wonderful illustrations that were black and white photographs. For example, inside the Laundromat there were photographs of washers. I think the illustrations truly enhanced the story. Also the cartoons really conveyed strong emotions to set the mood of the story. I knew how upset Trixie was when she left Knuffle Bunny because the illustration showed the fear in her eyes. The big idea of the story was that everyone in his or her life has had a strong connection to a stuffed animal or object as a child, and have had the fear of losing it. Also, sometimes a young child can’t communicate their emotions because they are pre-verbal. ( )
