    I pre-ordered the board book edition of this for my 3-year-old, although I wondered (not having read it yet myself) whether it might be too young for him.It wasn't. It wasn't too young for my 8-year-old, either. At the end of our first read, they BOTH let out sighs of deep contentment. "Ohhh," said my 8-year-old (who normally prefers fat chapter books about space adventures and so on). "What a HAPPY book!" My 3-year-old said: "READ IT AGAIN!"It's utterly simple, incredibly warm and comforting, and it has the best kind of insta-classic feel. My 3-year-old has asked me to read it to him again and again ever since it arrived, and lots of different bits from the book (as the mother tries to guess what kind of animal her new baby is) have entered into our family vocab. (E.g., when I call my 3-year-old "Bunny Roo," he always immediately says: "Hold me close! Keep me warm!")It's sincerely comforting in the best possible way, and I love it. It would make an absolutely perfect gift for any baby or toddler (and I bet their older siblings, too, will feel a wave of warmth and security whenever they overhear it).Perfect. <3

    A lovely illustrated book about a baby and their parent.

    It is sometimes hard to standout in a category of books where there are a lot of tender mother-baby books, but Melissa Marr not only does it in a way that adds something but feels like a classic at the same time. Written in response to the experiences she had in caring for her infant son who was suffering withdrawal symptoms after being born to his birthmother who was an addict, (From twitter) Marr commented: Each of those animals represented a stage of his withdrawal. It was how I explained things & told him he'd be ok. - Having worked with infants and toddlers with special needs, Marr's descriptions resonated with what I had seen. Whether an infant is suffering withdrawal or just normal newborn adjustment issues, this book is a loving tribute to the mother-infant bonding process.

    Adorable. Cute. Sweet. A must read to the little darlings in your life.Ages: 2 - 5**Like my reviews? I also have hundreds of detailed reports that I offer too. These reports give a complete break-down of everything in the book, so you'll know just how clean it is or isn't.

    My son got this book in his very first Easter basket from his grandparents and aunt, and it immediately became a favorite of mine. It is such a sweet, tender read between a parent and baby, with soft illustrations. I feel like this one belongs amongst the classics like Love You Forever! I have already read this one to my kiddo multiple times and am so glad that we own this copy so we can revisit it any time we want!

    i knew this was going to be cute. i did not know, or even kind of think, it might make feel a bit weeepy! it's SO sweet. i love the simple, cutesy illustrations. but what really got me were the descriptions of baby.babies can be such strange creatures while they're figuring themselves out, cocking their heads like curious little lizards and finding the sound of their own howls. it'a only in their little smiles, the special whole-body gummy grins reserved just for mama and papa, that we can know with absolute certainty: they aren't a bunny-roo-lizard-wolf-kitten-piggy, they're OUR BABY.i HIGHLY recommend this for new mamas/babies. i will be sending one to my pregnant friend in the next few weeks! it's just spot on for those first 0-6 months, from what i've experienced. and did i mention the cuuute?

    When I found out Marr had a picture book I had to have it. I'm a Yuuuuge fan of her YA stuff. But my 2 year old can be ridiculously picky about picture books as he's still a board book kind of guy, but he sat enraptured through the whole thing. That already will give it a few stars! He laughed at the end when I tickled and grabbed him up saying he was my baby and not all of those funny animals. He then went around saying he was my baby (insert weepy mother tears) so that Of Course gets it some stars. It doesn't hurt that it's very prettily illustrated by White. It's just the right amount of "stuff" on the page and words. Sometimes things are too heavy one way or the other for my son at this age, but this one was delightfully perfect and I look forward to reading it again tonight!

    Guys, this book is adorable. The text might be a little too sweet for some, but for moms, it's basically JUST RIGHT. And the illustrations-- my coworker described it as "Frozen meets Peter Rabbit." The color palettes and details are perfection. Coworker and I were squealing about every page. Sorry, other coworkers! It was just too cute NOT to squeal over!

    This is one of the cutest books!! My sister-in-law got a signed copy of this one for Brandt and it's the perfect book for him. The words are wonderful and the illustrations are LOVELY.

    Got a signed copy for my Rambunctious Kindergartener, when I was attending Nola StoryCon.Read this to her and she really enjoyed it. She even gave a Awww! at the ending.It's such a sweet story to read to a little one and this book will be treasured since it's signed by Melissa Marr for my little one. :)It's her first signed book by an author and not her last either.

    This one brought a tear to my eye! So sweet! Okay, so I knew where it was going from the very beginning, but I think that actually made it more sweet and powerful to me. Nothing in the world can beat that first smile from a new baby!

    Another quiet mother/baby book that in combination with Teagan White's beautiful critter illustrations, (and just one misstep in the verse that didn't seem to make sense), that is pulled off about as good as can be done.

    Very sweet and cute illustrations but didn't quite reach the same level of feeling that I got from "Little You" or "The Runaway Bunny".

    I loved the illustrations from Teagan White in mice skating, that’s Why I bought this book. But the story didn’t appeal to me.

    I especially liked the style of the illustrations in this charming picture book by the author of the young adult Wicked Lovely series.

    This is a good book for children o all ages. I loved how the mothers made they're children feel loved. I loved the pictures and the story.

    The first of May was always cause for celebration growing up in my home. For at least two days cone-shaped baskets with handles would be crafted from colorful construction paper. On May Day early in the morning before beginning the day's activities or going to school, we would pick small bouquets of flowers from my Mom's gardens, placing them inside the paper containers. The best part of all came next.We went like fairies skipping from home to home in the neighborhood hanging the spring treats on door knobs. Extending small kindnesses to others was one of Mom's gifts. Mothers instinctively provide comfort. In Bunny Roo, I Love You (Nancy Paulsen Books, an imprint of Penguin Group (USA), April 14, 2015) written by Melissa Marr with illustrations by Teagan White a child is warmly welcomed into their new world by a loving motherMy full recommendation:

    Full review at: Roo goes through different incidences of a baby’s behavior and compares it to an animal that acts similar. The theme is clearly: all babies act a little nuts, but you are my baby who I love so much. On Twitter, Marr shared, “Each of those animals represented a stage of his [her adopted infant son who was suffering form withdrawal symptoms after being born to an addict] withdrawal. It was how I explained things & told him he’d be ok.” This information moves this book to an even deeper emotional level for me. To watch your baby suffer must have been one of the hardest thing Marr had ever encountered. Although the book is based on this specific experience, any mother will connect with Bunny Mom and her baby, and any reader will feel the love radiating from the pages.

    Some books have that essence of love and sheer cuteness all over them from cover to cover. “Bunny Roo” is one of them. It portrays with care and tenderness the love of a mother for her baby. Be it in its colors, warm in suave orange and yellows, or on conveying in small phrases the immense delight that the purest form of love can bring. The mother who will make her child feel safe, that will allow it to see the world and explore, whom will be by their side through everything… a lot is to be felt while experiencing this. For the young ones, they will learn about different animals and their behaviors, as well as reflect on their bonds with their mothers. A pearl.

    This is a sweet book. The set up of the mom comparing baby to different animals and then describing what she does for baby reminded me a little but of The Runaway Bunny. I remember reading Melissa Marr's blog while she was adopting her son, when he was born, and while she was caring for him through Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome. She also posted how she came to write this on her website. love Teagan White's artwork so much. I really think I might buy some of her prints online to decorate my house. I will read anything she illustrates.

    I always love a story where the emphasis is on how special a baby is to their parents. Marr did it in a very cute and simple way. The illustrations were also simple, but had a very classic look to them that adults can appreciate, even if the children can't exactly. I think Marr captured a lot of the qualities that babies have, especially in the early stages and she does it in a sweet way. I really enjoyed reading this to my kids.Thoughts from BG1: It was good, very sweet and nice.Thoughts from BG2: I like the kitten, and the wolf, and the baby. It’s so cute. Read it again!

    This book offers beautiful watercolor illustrations in a style reminiscent of the late 1930's. The text on each page looks like it was painted in watercolors as well, and matches the accompanying illustration. This tender story is told from the viewpoint of the mother to her child. Two things that I especially appreciate about this book are that: 1) the gender of the baby is not defined and 2) The mom is not wearing high heels and a dress.

    From teen author Melissa Marr, Bunny Roo, I Love You is a cute addition to the parents-and-babies genre of picture books. I liked the simplicity of the text, but the illustrations (and I know I'm in the minority here) did nothing for me.

    Really fantastic choice for baby storytime. Sweet and simple text. When I finished two of the mothers cooed about what a sweet book it was. It is more for the parents then the children, but it does have a reassuring message that your parents will meet all your needs.Also really accurately describes the feelings you have that first few months of parenting.

    An endearing story about baby's that tremble like bunnies, squirm like kangaroos, and are as curious as lizards. No matter the creature baby is appearing to be their is always a tender hearted caretaker to sooth and provide love. A great bedtime book for little ones and their caregivers.
