Nice, sweet, fun book May 27, 2008
Nice little book for a quick read to our daughter before bed. I like the pictures which incorporate the vivid imigination of the baby and mommy rabbits.
Classic, but there's one better Apr 29, 2008
I bought this for my son after receiving Goodnight Moon, which is written by same author. Both are classics and the colored pages are more engaging to my 18 month old than the black & white pages. A similar story line as Runaway Bunny but with a more colorful, easy-flowing story is I Love You, Stinky Face by Lisa McCourt. My son just won't put it down and wants it read to him over and over again.
Makes a great baby gift Apr 27, 2008
A classic book. Right size to slip into a baby gift basket. Sturdy enough to stand up to years of baby abuse.

Review by Sherry North, Author, Because You Are My Baby
This imaginative book reassures children that Mom will always love them and be there for them, even if they are angry or feel like running away. Yet, I find it unsettling how the mother bunny is so determined to undermine her child's sense of independence. One line is particularly disturbing: the little bunny says he will become a sailboat and sail away, and the mother answers, "I will become the wind and blow you where I want you to go." I'm not a psychologist or anything, but this line seems so controlling - not a message I want to give my child.
So dear-a true classic! Mar 2, 2008
Beautifully written showing a mother's love to a very young child. Lap boards are perfect for the very young. A must for a newborn! Dixie Johnson
