Play a game of hide and seek with Little Bunny in the meadow in Where is Little Bunny? Young children can follow the clues and lift the sturdy flaps with peep-through holes to see if Little Bunny is hiding underneath. Meet his animal friends along the way as you explore the meadow, before a surprise pop-up ending reveals Little Bunny's secret hiding place. Bright, bold illustration from Jean Claude makes this an ideal gift purchase for animal-mad toddlers.

What better way to get in the spirit of spring than to play a game of hide and seek with Little Bunny. This is the newest addition to the 'Where is…' series by Campbell Books, which is aimed at developing toddler's fine motor skills and vocabulary.
In Where is Little Bunny?, we must follow the clues and lift the flaps to find where Little Bunny is hiding. The flaps on each page are very well camouflaged and well-made which makes it more of a challenge for our little ones to spot. The illustrations peeping out from the flaps are very cleverly made to look like each part of the rabbit. Is that Little Bunny's furry feet? No, it’s a song bird's wings! Is that Little Bunny's fluffy tail? No, that’s a woolly lamb! We meet lots of wildlife along the way until we reach the pop-up ending where Little Bunny is found. Where do you think Little Bunny was hiding all along?
Despite the fictional narrative, we learn so much vocabulary along the way! We learn to name the parts of a rabbit (and adjectives to describe them) and the names of other wild animal friends. I would absolutely use this book as a gentle tool to begin speaking about relationships and offspring with children in the Early Years. Jean Claude has included so much new life throughout this book with baby animals to spot in the fields and eggs waiting to hatch by the stream - it really is beautiful and a great way of broaching the subject of new life and Spring time with little ones. This book is one to be enjoyed all year round - but is, of course, extra special to be read around Easter time.
