Betty Bunny wants everything by Michael B. Kaplan

Title:  Betty Bunny wants everything!

Author:  written by Michael B. Kaplan ; illustrated by Stéphane Jorisch

Collection:  Childrens EZ Books

 

Betty Bunny’s mother takes her and her siblings to a toy store where each is allowed to pick out one item, but Betty refuses to choose just one and throws a tantrum when she learns the alternative is to get nothing.   The perfect preschool story about wanting what you can’t have.   Betty Bunny can’t understand why she is allowed to buy only one toy at the toy store, when there are so many toys that she wants so very, very much. So Betty leaves tearfully without any toys. Mom and Dad come up with a solution to help Betty choose just one toy the next time they go shopping – she gets her own money to spend on what she wants, and once it is gone, she can’t have any more. But if anyone can find a loophole, Betty can! Betty Bunny proves that, once again, she is a lovable handful, and her negotiating skills will be instantly recognizable (and hilarious) to everyone with a preschooler in their lives.

I blogged about Betty Bunny Loves Chocolate Cake, the first book in the charming Betty Bunny series.  Just as in her previous adventure, Betty is a handful and a half.  With fun illustrations, kids of all ages will identify with Betty Bunny, and parents will like the book as a good introduction to explain the difference between “want” and “need” to their children.
