Wolfie the Bunny by Ame Dyckman, illustrations by Zachariah OHora. Becoming a big brother or sister is tough, especially if you’re a bunny and your baby brother is a wolf! I mean, wouldn’t he eat you up?!? Bunny Dot voices her concerns to her parents on a regular basis, even her friends do, but her parents ignore her and continue to dote on her little wolf brother, Wolfie. One day, her growing brother’s appetite consumes all of their carrots. Dot doesn’t want Wolfie to eat her up, so she must buy more carrots to fill his belly! Mama bunny dresses Wolfie in his bunny suit (it’s cold outside!), and with urgency Dot escorts her brother to the market. While there, the duo encounters a hungry bear. Ironically, the bear wants to have Wolfie for dinner! This is the perfect opportunity for Dot to run, but she doesn’t. She steps up and defends her brother. The bear isn’t bothered: after all, a bunny is no match for a bear. Dot persists “I’ll eat you up… I’ll start at your toes!” Bear is frightened by Dot’s big personality and runs off. From this experience, Dot realizes having a little brother isn’t so bad. Wolfie may act like your typical little brother, he may even be a Wolf, but that doesn’t mean she loves him any less. This book is an enjoyable read and a great one to use as a platform for discussing siblings and family to your children. (Or, just check it out because it’s a hilariously fun story!)
