Even More Bedtime Stories With Mo Willems

Hello Readers!

I was at the library the other day and I found the third installment of Knuffle Bunny. It’s called Knuffle Bunny Free and it’s just as witty and heartwarming as the first two. I may be a grown-up, but I was super excited to discover there was another bunny book. I’ve been reading the other two installments to my students for years and I get a real kick out of them.

In this installment, Trixie goes on a family trip to visit her grandparents in Holland. She, her parents, and Knuffle Bunny board an airplane and settle in for a long flight. Once they’ve landed there’s great excitement when everyone is reunited. After the hoopla dies down, Trixie realizes something. I’m sure by now you know what it is that she realizes, but you’re going to have to read the book to find out if you’re correct.

After you’ve read all three books, you and your child could do a character study of Trixie. Discuss how she changed over the course of the trilogy: the things that she learned, how she dealt with the loss of Knuffle Bunny, the difference in her physical appearance. If you go on Pinterest, I’m sure you’ll find a ton of fun ideas for each and every Knuffle Bunny book.I hope these book reviews have given you a starting point into exploring the wonderful world of literature with your child. Please share any comments or ideas you have to expand on this topic.

I live with my loving husband, two children and dog in Philadelphia, PA. I discovered my passion for writing in second grade when I had to write a book report for school. I was so excited to write the report, until my mother told me that I had to write about someone else's book and not my own story. I became indignant and decided that once I finished the book report I would most certainly write my own original story. I have been writing ever since! My self-published book Chris Kringle's Cops was a Finalist in The Reader's Favorite Book Contest for 2016. I am so happy to share this story with you.  My picture book Kamyla Chung and the Creepy Crawlies was given a 5 Star rating by Reader's Favorite Book Reviews in 2017.
