Salten falls into the former category. While the characters are anthropomorphized some, Salten captures a lot of truths about rabbits as well. Today writing is rarely beautiful; words are just a tool for conveying the plotline. Indeed, the novel is a page-turner.

Used this for itty bitty story time, and I probably won't use it for that group again. I like the message that you should read every day , but I think it would be better suited for older kiddos. Also, the copy I have is on the small side, so I think babies being able to see the illustrations was an issue.

The borders had a solid color of the background on both open pages with many white dots. Then around the yellow box where the text was and then the colored illustration had a white mini border around them. On the left side of the open book page is the text in large easy to read font. Then on the right side is the colorful illustration. Each page had a different setting, which took place in different places and times of the day, as well as different bunnies and a parent. The theme throughout the story was to show a different families parent and bunny reading a book in different placing with smiles on their faces.
