Dear Grandma Bunny
by Dick Bruna
Age Range: Under_5
Dear Grandma Bunny introduces that most difficult subject of all: the death of a loved one. In this story Miffy joins in the grief, the ceremonial and the celebrations that commemorate Grandma Bunny herself and her contribution to the extended family.
Dick Bruna’s illustrations perfectly catch the intensity of emotion experienced by young children, and the familiar rhymed translation provides a memorable text for listening to and joining in. Bruna does not shirk the physical aspects of death, and portrays Grandma Bunny, unusually still, but clearly peaceful. Excellent additions to the library of lovely little books about this universally loved character.
