"Hey, Rabbit!" review

With Easter coming up many of you are probably wondering what to add to your child's Easter basket, that doesn't cause cavities. I always like to add books. I and several other members from The Classy Closet review panel had the opportunity to review "Hey Rabbit!", by Sergio Ruzzier. This is a wonderful book that you and your children can enjoy Easter and year on.

About "Hey Rabbit!":
"Move over Easter Bunny, there’s a spunky new rabbit in town, and he has a suitcase full of special surprises for each of his friends: Dog, Toucan, Bear, Cat, Mouse, and Crab! Sergio Ruzzier, author of the Amandina, has once again worked his considerable magic to create Hey, Rabbit! – a playful tale that is sure to have kids shouting out the words and immersing themselves in the detailed and witty illustrations."

About the Author:
Sergio Ruzzier was born in Milan, Italy, in 1966. He is an author and illustrator of many children’s 
books and an editorial illustrator. From 1989 to 1993 he created a series of comic strips for Linus, the Italian comics magazine, and later for Lupo Alberto Magazine.
In 1995 he moved to New York City, from where he's been working for national and international magazines and book publishers.

My children and I love this book. It grabs my children's attention by allowing them to guess what will come next. They especially love meeting all of Rabbit's friends. My personal favorite part about the book is the illustrations. Each picture is surrounded by color and life. I am so happy to now have "Hey Rabbit" added in my children's book collection.

Buy It:
You can purchase "Hey Rabbit!" on Amazon for only $12.23.
