Format: Board book
The one- and two-star people have the totally wrong impression. What do you think the (equivalent) age of the little runaway bunny is -- 16 to 25? To what age group are we reading a book like this? You have somehow missed the point, and context.
The idea here is that the little bunny is a very young child, far too young to be on his own -- you know this when he actually tells his mother he is running away! Imagine your child of 4 to 7, momentarily angry about something, who tells you he wants to run away from home, pouting and saying things he doesn't mean, wanting attention, testing your love. (Heck, imagine your adolescent of 16 literally running away, though he wouldn't warn you beforehand!) He is far too young to be on his own, and his mother loves him so much that she will always be there for him when he needs her, and will not let harm come to him. He needs her now, though in his current emotional state he doesn't realize it. Would you let your child run away?
This book's audience is toddler through early-reader, the kind of age where their early needs for independence are joined with an intense need to feel the constant love and presence of the parent -- they need to know their parent(s) will always be there for them. Margaret Wise Brown was not talking about an older child figuratively spreading his or her wings, only to be smothered and squashed by Mother's "love." (The only overall metaphor here is that bunnies = humans.) She's literally talking about an immature child impulsively saying he will run away, and what any good, loving parent would say and do to help and comfort him. The book is from 1942, so perhaps that makes it unclear to some, but from the moment I read it I understood the context; it is a beautiful story if you understand the intent.

My little daughter (5) picks this one out to have me read to her often since she was walking age. The message behind it is a fun one for her and I both. I read it to her slightly differently than what it is meant perhaps, and do change the "he" in the book to a "she". It's read in a more playful hide and seek game-story that the mommy and the baby bunny play. On the colored illustrations, I ask her "Where is that little bunny now?!!" She will "find" the bunny. She especially likes it when the mommy is the gardener, because the baby bunny is hiding really well in the flowers. And last summer during an outdoor hide and seek game, she even hid in our garden and jumped out and surprised me calling herself a little bunny!

It's a fun book about a mommy bunny loving her little bunny anywhere in the world the little bunny will go. If that is what you want it to be -- it will. I do not think it was meant to be psychologically damaging to children. I'm not a stalker-mommy just because of reading them this book! If they were 40 years old and living on a mountain, I'd still like them to at least think about me and that I'd BE a mountain climber (if I must) and come to them!

Very cute children's book with a great message of eternal love and companionship. It was used as a gift for a child's baptism.

This book is wonderful. My son is in an accelerated reading program at school, he brought this book home last night to read and we had such a great time with it. When the story starts off with the little bunny telling his mom that he'll run away and she says she'll follow him I just thought . . . that is love. I told my son that he was the little bunny and I was the mommy bunny, so throughout the story we pretended that those characters were us. The look on my son's face was priceless, I could tell that he knew that his mommy loves him dearly (children need reassurance). He was so proud to hear that I would follow him like that. The color illustrations kept us laughing. They were just so sweet and cute. This book is a classic. I would recommend it to any parent. I didn't see it as a way a mother holds a child back from adventuring out, but as a way a mother/father can deal with a little child wanting to runaway. My son has told me a time or two that he was going to runaway (I believe all kids do - I can remember telling my mom) next time he tells me that I'll just remind him of this story and that I am a mommy bunny! Call me crazy, but I'm assuming that God has read this book as well. After all He keeps running after each and every one of us. Children of all ages need to know that.

Ever thought of running away? Or, have you ever been really angry at your mother? Well, I have just the cure for that, this book. This is timeless tale of a little bunny who can't help but test the extent of his mother's love, but for every idea the little bunny has for running away, his mother counters with a way of making sure they are always together. For instance, when the little bunny says he will escape his mother by turning into a sailboat, his mother says in reply "If you turn into a sailboat, I will become the wind and blow you home." A wonderful story that displays the unconditional love a mother has for her children.

My grandfather used to read this book to me. Now I am thrilled to share it with my little boy. It is a great story with a timeless message -- mommy is always there. My son and I love it!
