This story tells of a bunny that comes out the blue and with spirit and courage, finds out who she is.

“Why do you think she comes from the sky?”

“Because she’s blue.”

“Did you like the book?”

“I love it because I love bunny rabbits. I want some bunny rabbits. Can I have a pet bunny rabbit? A mommy and a daddy bunny, please!!!!”

“Do you think the bunny rabbit caused the thunder?”

“Bunnies don’t cause thunder! That’s silly. It came from her foot!”

Parent’s comments:
“Thunder Bunny” is definitely an original story around the saying ‘coming out of the blue.’ The illustrations are soft and cuddly like a bunny rabbit, so the pictures are fun to look at. Because the theme deals with an abstract concept, it is a good exercise to talk about what is real and what isn’t.
