Wolfie the Bunny

At the Schools of Hope Advanced Tutor Training (see below), Dr. MaryAnn Nickel recommended Wolfie the Bunny by Ame Dyckman and illustrated by Zachariah Ohora for beginning readers. So I went to my bookshelf and reread the book. She was right, a book about bravery, sibling rivalry and unconditional love is perfect.

One day the Bunny family finds a little wolf in a basket on their porch. Mama and Papa are smitten but Dot cries "He's going to eat us all up!" Wolfie is a good baby, he loves carrots and he is a good sleeper. When Dot's friends came by to see the baby, they scream, "He's going to eat us all up". Soon Wolfie is following Dot everywhere she goes. She is not pleased. 

Wolfie grows rapidly and the bigger he gets the more he eats until there are no carrots left. Dot is heading to the store to get more when Mama dresses Wolfie up in a pink bunny suit so he can go to the store, too. At The Carrot Patch, Wolfie is threatened by a very large bear. Guess who saves the day and her brother?

The Nerdy Book Club has a funny article by Ame Dyckman about how she finally heard Dot's voice and finished the story

The Sonoma County Library has ten copies. The AR is 1.8.
