Knuffle Bunny

Yesterday the Caldecott winners were announced. Kevin Henkes won for his book, Kitten's First Full Moon. But Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems was a runner-up. I'm on hold for Henkes' book, but read Knuffle Bunny today, and thought of you, Ann. It's not as cute as his Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! and The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog! But, did you catch the tee shirt on the man when they ran back through the park? There's the pigeon! Sometime in November or December, PW had a series of hilarious ads with the pigeon in them, commenting on books by the publisher. And, he said things like, everyone's talking about Knuffle Bunny, but don't forget the Pigeon books. Great series of ads!

I've had Knuffle Bunny at home near T's bed for over a month. We keep reading it and laughing at the toddler's attempt to speak clearly. Occasionally we say "snurp" to one another and crack up. Genius.
I bought Kitten months ago and even put one on the storyshelf. I used it in storytime in 2004. Look how "in the know" i am!
