Review: Peter Rabbit - Bedtime Bunny Hunt

Based on the books by Beatrice Potter, this stunning lift-the-flap book is pure delight.

Peter Rabbit loves the outdoors and being surrounded by nature and his family.  It is a glorious day, so the young ones decide to bring their toys out into the sunshine.

They play hide and seek. There are so many secret places to hide. Peter Rabbit knows them all. Under bushes, behind trees and in all the nooks and hollows that nature provides.

Too soon mother is calling them in to prepare for bedtime. She reminds the little ones to pick up their toys.

Mopsy, Flopsy and Cotton-tail return their toys to their usual places. But what about Peter Rabbit’s bunny?

A search begins. Everyone takes part.

Where can that bunny be?

Mother suggests that sometimes, when something is misplaced, it is best to do and think of something else. So, they have their bath, then enjoy some warm milk and cake.

Now, will all this help Peter Rabbit to find his bunny?

Little ones will have lots of fun lifting the flaps to see if bunny can be found. This is a most pleasurable interaction as it can be repeated over and over, with each repetition feeling like the first.

Stunning images fill each page as they go through the house, looking in cupboards, under pots, behind things. They check even in the most unusual places. Peter Rabbit must find his friend before he goes to bed!
