What I Loved:

Just Bunny and the Great Fire Rescue is a true story of the loss and rescue of Just Bunny. Jeanne LaSala Taylor wrote this as a thank you to the New York Fire Department, and firefighters everywhere. It’s a beautiful way to share their story and gratitude.

How I Felt:

The Story was written in a way that allowed a young reader to understand the problem and resolution. The fire was not scary for my child as the family is evacuated quickly and I appreciated that. She was worried about Just Bunny and so happy that he was rescued in the end.

The Illustration was really great. It had a hand-drawn feel to it and was just beautiful! There’s a version of Just Bunny (pictured to the left). He is hiding on each page in the book for the reader to find. My daughter had SO much fun with this!

Overall, this was a wonderful story that we enjoyed greatly. The daughter and Just Bunny are easy for a young child to connect with. The entire story and the interaction of the hidden Just Bunny on each page made the book perfect!

To Read or Not To Read:

This is a great book for a preschool to middle elementary school. It is a great “thank you” to firemen and women everywhere.

Francesca’s favorite stuffed animal friend is Just Bunny. Just Bunny goes everywhere and does everything with Francesca. When Francesca and her family are out to eat one day, a kitchen fire starts in the restaurant and they must evacuate. Once outside, they realize Just Bunny has been left behind!

Francesca’s mom finds a NYFD fireman and asks him for help. He goes into the building and saves Just Bunny, returning him to Francesca.
