Fuzzy Bunny Slippers is a children’s book written by J. M. Verdi and illustrated by Kat Spencer. This rhyming tale tells the story of Erin, a little girl who loves fluffy bunnies. Erin receives a pair of bunny slippers for Christmas.

The bunnies who live outside think that Erin has kidnapped a couple of real rabbits. They endeavor to break into her house to rescue the rabbits. They find that the door is unlocked. When they come inside, they realize that the “rabbits” are a pair of bunny slippers. The story ends with Erin sitting in a cozy chair wearing her bunny slippers while reading to the real bunnies.

This is a cute story that is appropriate for children of all ages. It contains only very mild peril that is quickly and happily resolved. The pictures are bright and beautiful and have an almost dreamlike glowing quality about them.

Erin is a charming protagonist that children can relate to, and the determined bunnies are adorable. The text is easily readable, contrasting nicely with the brightly colored background. I feel that the tale’s simple rhyming scheme could be helpful for children who are learning how to read as rhyming words tend to help reinforce memorization.

The story also reinforces the positive ideals of loving and caring for animals and nature. While letting wild animals into the house as Erin does isn’t practical in real life, parents can use the story as a lead-in to teaching kids to respect and care for animals.

There was nothing that I disliked about this book. It was well-written, beautifully formatted, and I believe that it was professionally edited as I found no errors in the text. I am pleased to give Fuzzy Bunny Slippers a well-deserved four out of four stars and recommend this cute book without reservation to those with young children in their lives.

You had me at the second paragraph. The plot and how it's presented are so cute; I need to hug my dog now—an excellent description of the style. Thanks for the smile.

I just read the book, and it was adorable. Children can learn to be unconditionally kind to animals. Thank you for the lovely review.

Thanks for your review. The bunnies are so cute, especially when they are trying to rescue Erin's slippers, which they mistake as their own kind.

Any book that establishes a connection with nature and reinforces the importance of protecting animals is going on To-Read list. Can't wait to read this to my granddaughter this summer.

I just loved the book, the pictures are amazing, and the poem like writing is so fun to read to a child. For me it not only talked about the love for animals but also a way to teach children that not always things are like they look.

"The story also reinforces the positive ideals of loving and caring for animals and nature. " This is a very clever observation. I liked the illustrations and winter wonderland themes in the book. It is a delightful children's book. Great job with the review.
