Family Fun Twin Cities: ABC Bunny Earns Its Space on Your Bookshelf

An unfortunate accident with an Apple drives Bunny from Bunnyland to Elsewhere. Every letter in the alphabet is represented in Bunny’s journey, through what he eats (Greens), to whom he meets (Insects, Jay, Kitten, Lizard), and then a little sleep (Nap), to Tripping back to town, right side Up and Up-side-down.

University of Minnesota Press released the board book version of ABC Bunny by Wanda Gág in April 2022. Originally published in 1933, I was surprised to learn that it had not been published as a board book until now! It is an ideal book for the board book style and will age well with kids, making it a good addition to your own bookshelves.

I’m excited to add this book to my permanent collection. Although my kids are older, I think the artwork is fun to study at any age and I love the idea of having a small set of baby-friendly board books available for visitors and future grandchildren.
