A loving mama has fun sharing the various animals her growing child resembles, in this delightful companion to Bunny Roo, I Love You.
When you touched the water, you squawked and splashed. I thought you'd become a duckling, so I jumped in to play with you.
It's hard to keep up with an energetic toddler, and as an adoring mom tries to, she describes all the frisky young animals her little one reminds her of--from a hopping frog and a squirming snake, to her adorable cuddly bunny.

“Marr and White produce a toddler sequel to Bunny Roo, I Love You. . . . Pale, creamy backgrounds and sparse details keep the focus on the parent-child relationship, which is very sweet and tender, especially in the closing vignette of mother holding a snuggly child. . . . Both a sweet lap-read and a gentle exhortation that caregivers interact with their children.”—Kirkus Reviews
