"Here are Paul and Judy. They can do lots of things. You can do lots of things, too." Pat the Bunny is the original interactive, multimedia experience for kids. Virtually unchanged since its introduction in 1940, the kind tone and sweet illustrations in this classic recall a bygone era, while the simple language and large print invite kids to get interested in the written word as an invitation to thought and action. Each page shows Paul or Judy involved in an activity--playing peekaboo, smelling flowers, and, of course, patting the bunny--and then guides the reader to do the same. On the pages are a scrap of cloth with Paul hiding underneath (peekaboo), fuzzy fabric (the bunny), scented paper (the flowers), and five other now-famous features that invite a child to play with the book. As one of the bestselling children's books of all time, Pat the Bunny has become a tradition passed from one generation to the next to instill a love of books and reading. This gift set includes the book and a soft, baby-safe velour bunny toy that is loyal to the quirky bunny illustration in the book. Baby will love to take bunny along when the book has to go back on the shelf. (From birth) --Katherine Ferguson --This text refers to an alternate Plastic Comb edition.

This book tells what Paul and Judy can do and then invites the children to try it as well. It involves most of their senses from smelling flowers to putting their finger through mother's ring. Children love this book because it allows them to be active participants instead of passive listeners.
The clear, uncluttered background makes it easy for children to understand the main action going on in the page. There are different textures used from a soft bunny to daddy's scratchy beard. The softer pastel colors really let the activities shine.
The book is one of my favorites. I even went and bought one of my own and a video that goes along with it. I read it to all my family and friends all the time.
This book is meant for early childhood, but I think it could be very helpful in teaching young special education students as well.
When my first child (now almost 18) was less than 6 months old, I would take her tiny hand and place her chubby fingers on each different texture...the bunny, the cloth, and of course my favorite...Daddy's scratchy beard! (a piece of sandpaper). I don't know how much of the simple and sweet words my daughter absorbed, but she was cuddled in my arms, being rocked (our favorite place to read) and she definitely liked to touch the textures. Now the interesting thing is that the book remained special, and when she should have outgrown it, she did not. It remained in the collection. I think that's because it is just so peaceful and simple, remnants of a former time.
If you are expecting, if one of your friends has a new baby, if you are a grandparent or a loving aunt or uncle, you cannot give a better book for a new baby. It will be that baby's cherished book in short order. Guaranteed. One word of warning, though. Make sure that you are buying the original, with all the textures. I saw one oversized board book version the other day, and its only texture was the cotton of the bunny, which carried through to each page. No no!! We need everything right for this book of a lifetime.
All I have to do is recite the poem and he immediately settles and starts searching for the book. (He's 15 months)
This book deserves 5 stars... but I gave a 4 because of the poor quality of the binding.
Its spiral bound and he destroyed the first book by ripping it to pieces while I had my back turned.
With this one, I have to make sure he doesn't pull it apart or rip the little holes that the binding goes through. Poor kiddo loves the book, but he only gets to read it while supervised!
