Small Bunny’s best friend and companion is Blue Blanket. Wherever Small Bunny goes, Blue Blanket is there with him, and Small Bunny always feels that his precious blanket is an essential part of his life. Small Bunny is sure that Blue Blanket helps Small Bunny go higher on the swings, and it also helps Small Bunny paint and read better.

   One day Mommy announces that Small Bunny and Blue Blanket need to have a bath. Small Bunny does not think that Blue Blanket needs a bath at all. It is “perfect” the way it is, but Mommy thinks otherwise and everyone knows that mommies get their own way. Poor Small Bunny is separated from his best friend.

   Many little children have a blanket or a toy animal best friend, and for them their friend is an important part of their lives. This charming board book, with its minimal artwork, beautifully captures the love that a small rabbit child has for his beloved blanket. Nothing, not even baths, can ruin such a precious relationship.
