Book Description

Jan. 13 2004 A Golden Sturdy Book
OLE RISOM was one of the most influential publishers of mass-market books for children. He was vice president and art director of Golden Books at Western Publishing from 1952-1972, and then vice president and associate publisher of the juvenile division of Random House from 1972 to 1990. He worked closely with RICHARD SCARRY over the years at both houses.

Generations of children around the world have grown up spending hours poring over books by the late RICHARD SCARRY filled with all the colorful details of their daily lives. No other illustrator has shown such a lively interest in the words and concepts of early childhood. Scarry began his career at Golden Books in the 1940s, and he remains one of the world's best-loved children's book creators EVER! He was posthumously awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Society of Illustrators in 2012.

Format:Board book
When my children fell in love with Nicholas, I sent copies to every friend I knew with a young baby. I was so disappointed when one friend seemed unenthusiastic. Her copy came just as they were leaving for bridge, and the baby sitter took first crack at it. "It only took 2 minutes to read - there is not much to it".
Two days later my friend called to apologize. When she read the book to her little one, the first time thru took 2 minutes, but then they snuggled together on the couch while every page was reviewed, every leaf questioned, every butterfly named, daffodils and dogwood and acorns admired. The baby need not understand the answers - the charm and the pictures encourage long loving perusal together.
I have to admit that I was forced to buy a butterfly guide just to name each pretty one the little finger touched.
This book has only a few short sentences, 1 per beautiful page, and the order your baby turns the pages matters little. If you both enjoy a nice long cuddle, this book is wonderful. I am now buying it for my grandchildren and friends with young grand babies.

Discover the four seasons with Nicholas the bunny, as he travels from spring to winter in this enchanting board book. Nicholas says, "In the spring, I chase the butterflies, and the butterflies chase me." The reader sees an adorable little bunny dressed in red overalls, leaping into the air, trying to catch one of the two-dozen beautifully rendered butterflies. The story continues with spring, then summer, and ends in winter. Nicholas lives in a hollow tree, and when winter arrives, the reader sees him curled up snug in his bunny bed dreaming about the spring to come. This endearing book captivates babies with the outstanding images, and simple text, while teaching the four seasons to older children. Written in 1963, "I am a Bunny," is a classic and one that should be included in every child's library. One-year and up.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lifelong Childhood Memory March 21 2000
Format:Board book
I remember the first time my grandmother read this book to me in 1969. The year my baby brother was born. As we turned the pages thru the four seasons in Nicholas Bunny's life she would encourage me to smell the field of daffodils, to pick out a favorite butterfly, to actually "blow the dandelion seeds into the air", and for me to take notice of how happy the toad appeared to be in the rain under his toadstool. My husband and I sometimes laughingly burst forth in reciting "I Am a Bunny" from memory because we have read this dear children's book to all of our six children repeatedly. And we too encourage them to "blow the dandelion seeds into the air."

"I am a Bunny" ranks among our favorite books. The story is relatively simple - we see things Nicholas likes to do during the year. As Nicholas progresses through the year, we have a sense of the changing seasons: initially everything is green and lush, then reddish as the leaves fall, and finally bluish-white for winter.
The illustrations are superbly done, with fine attention to detail. Each leaf, each butterfly, each frog is different and laydbugs abound.
The book itself is bound on very thick cardboard and thus will last for quite a while. It's a very worthy addition to your child's library and will be treasured for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars No wonder it is a Classic! Feb. 11 2003
By A Customer
Format:Board book
My little boy is 16 months and I bought this book more or less for myself as the bunny looks so cute and I am a Richard Scarry fan. Now I understand why all the online reviews named it as a classic, the illustrations are simply superb and the storyline is simple yet meaningful covering the 4 seasons and nature. It's just a lovely book. The size is different (long shape) but it's very unique and I'm a big fan of board books so there's also a plus there. I would definitely recommend this book to any toddler. My little boy was captivated immediately which is pretty unusual as there was no flap, no pop-up and no tiger.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must-buy book for toddlers March 10 2004
Format:Board book
I first bought this book because I loved its vintage look (note to Golden: please re-release more of these classics!). The beautiful illustrations have the same feeling as Mary Blair/Disney from the 1950s--lush, saturated colors with charming creatures inhabiting a happy world. Sadly, you don't see this type of art in a lot of kids books these days. But the REAL REASON you should buy it is how much kids love it....my 14.5-month old daughter is completely addicted to this book. She insists we read it again and again, loves pointing out Nicholas on every page and even tries to sniff the springtime flowers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Ever! Nov. 27 1999
Format:Board book
I have two grown up daughters in their twenties who became enchanted with Nicholas bunny's world when they were little. They wanted to enter the pages of this book and share Nicholas' world of wonder. That is the key to this book. It lets a small child experience the wonder of the world and know how to look for it when he goes outside. It is the perfect good night book and leaves the child with the happiness of a new day to explore in the morrow. Please bring this book back in its original large format so more children can seem to hold the world of Nicholas bunny in their hands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!! Oct. 22 2001
Format:Board book
My two year old LOVES this book!!! I hardly get a chance to finish reading a page before he pipes in with the rest of the story. He loves to follow the adventures of Nicholas as he "picks fowers", "chases buffeyes", watch the "fogs in the pon" and curl up into the "howwo tree". This book was handed down to us and got marked up by my son when I inadvertently left him alone with the book and a ball point pen.... I'm buying him another one. It's worth it!!!
