School Library Journal Review
PreS-Gr 1--Bunny's book club has a new member, a child named Josie, who likes to recommend books to the club members and help Bunny with hard words. Josie will be starting a new school and is nervous that she won't be able to make any friends. Bunny decides that since he is Josie's friend, he should also go to school. On the way, the rest of Bunny's book club members join him. While trying to find Josie at school, each of the animals peels off to explore their favorite activities (computers, gymnasium, science lab) one by one. When they finally meet back together and find Josie, she has already made some new friends, and so have they. The detailed illustrations provide a great deal of information for young readers to pore over. While perhaps not quite as cozy as its ode-to-libraries predecessor, this title will still charm young audiences. VERDICT A comforting choice for readers nervously anticipating their own first day of school or who are worried about making new friends. Recommended for general purchase.--Jessica Marie, Salem Public Library, OR
Booklist Review
Bunny and his friends, eight amiable woodland animals, are at the library when Bunny learns that Josie, a little girl who is reads with him, will be starting school. After she confides that she's worried about making friends there, he decides to go too. After all, he's already her friend. As he walks through the woods toward school that first morning, the other animals join him, one by one. They explore the building, searching for Josie, but they're easily distracted: Bear and Mouse by the lunchroom, Bird by the music room, etc. Finally they all join Josie on the playground, where the animals and children play happily together. In this appealing story, Silvestro offers a new twist on the familiar first-day jitters theme by switching from the child's perspective to the outsiders' point of view. In fact, most of the story involves the animals joyfully discovering the wonders to be found in school: A basketball court! Microscopes! Lunch! Colorful illustrations set a buoyant tone for this endearing sequel to Bunny's Book Club (2017).--Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2019 Booklist
