Mr. and Mrs. Bunny - A Follow-up

As I promised in Monday's post, I finished Mr. and Mrs. Bunny-Detectives Extraordinaire! by Mrs. Bunny and translated from the Rabbit by Polly Horvath.  I have to say, at first, I wasn't sure about the characters of Mr. and Mrs. Bunny, but as the story played out, I began to really understand them and enjoyed how they saved the day in the end. I also loved how Madeline grew and experienced life as a child, rather than be pushed to be the "adult" all the time by her parents.  Children need to experience life at all ages, and it was nice to see the Bunnys care for and treat Madeline as a child of their own.  She had been taking care of herself and others for so long, it was a nice break for her.  A cute story with modern day references thrown in for laughs.  A great book to read this summer!

I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, celebrating the men and women who currently serve or have served to protect our country. I know I'm especially thankful for my dad, several cousins and grandpas for all they have done.
