Another Christmas Picture Book Review by Jean Matthew Hall.
Little Bunny and the Magic Christmas Tree was written by David Martin and illustrated by Valeri Gorbachev. Candlewick Press published it in 2011.
Little Bunny and the Magic Christmas Tree is a cute little story about a bunny who is tired of always being the smallest kid. On Christmas Eve he falls asleep under the tree and has a magical experience. He gets to be the biggest kid for a while. With the help of new friends Little Bunny also has a life-long dream come true.
Little Bunny and the Magic Christmas Tree is about family, friendship, and self-worth, I think.
It’s okay to me, but I didn’t add it to my list of all-time Christmas favorites. It seemed slight—cute but no real meat to it.
If Little Bunny and the Magic Christmas Tree were being published today (2018) I suspect it would have much fewer words and maybe a theme or message with a little more depth.
Tune in next week, friends, for another Christmas Picture Book Review.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!
