Bunny Bungalow by Cynthia Rylant (illustrated by Nancy Hayashi) is one of my favorite picture books. We happened upon it at a consignment shop and it quickly became beloved by all of three of us. It’s a simple story with charming illustrations that definitely belongs in A Month of Cozy Books.
Bunny Bungalow is the sweet story of a rabbit family who finds a house and makes it their own. They paint it and add a carrot weathervane. Mother knits quilts for the beds and reads poetry to the children on the big soft couch.
The story has fireflies and drinking tea before bed. It has picking cherries and fluffy bath towels. It’s incredibly homey and full of family love.
It’s just cozy!
Bunny Bungalow is definitely worth adding to your bookshelf if you like family stories about home and love.
