Sometimes, when you read a book, you feel like you have gone on an actual adventure. You feel like you have been immersed in another world.
Bunny Overboard, the Picture Book of the Week, is just such a story. Written and illustrated by Claudia Rueda, it not only tells a story, it draws the reader into it.
About the Book:
Bunny Overboard is an interactive book. Bunny, the main character, goes sailing. To make his adventure complete, he needs a little help from the reader. Bunny breaks the fourth wall and talks to the reader. He encourages the reader rock from side to side to make waves for his boat and blow to put wind in his sail. There is no traditional plot in this story. No problem. No solution. The purpose of this book is simple: become part of the story. Go sailing and scuba diving with Bunny and then relax on the pier with a carrot lemonade. Young children will enjoy this book the most.
For older kids, the challenge for this week is to write their own story with no problem and no solution. Write a story that breaks the fourth wall and invites the reader into the action.
