I don't recall how or when I got a copy of Wolfie the Bunny for our student library, but I am glad that I did. I had been wanting to incorporate some sort of author interaction for my students, but I wasn't sure where to begin. We had written a letter to an author the previous year, and despite the author/illustrator (who will remain unnamed here) assuring us that he would write back, we never received any sort of response. It was a bummer for my students. This time around was totally different thanks to Mrs. Ame Dyckman.
Wolf the Bunny is the story of a wolf pup who is adopted by a family of rabbits. The parents welcome Wolfie with open paws, but their daughter Dot definitely has her reservations. This is a great read-aloud, and I had fun giving Dot an exasperated cry when she repeatedly warned that Wolfie was going to eat them all up (spoiler alert...he doesn't). This book has positive family themes, and is a good conversation starter with kids about judging people (or in this case wolves) by their appearance or prior reputation.
