Great illustrations. On the surface, this is a cute, funny story. This is a story that so many moms can relate to. The Backup Bunny is a book about a young boy that loses his favorite stuffed animal. Thankfully, mom has a backup in her sock drawer. Unfortunately, Max recognizes that this is not his favorite toy but rather an impostor. After throwing a tantrum, Max remembers where he left Bunny. So, the impostor is thrown in back in the sock drawer. But, wait. Max throws another tantrum and is rewarded with both bunnies. Eventually, Max even gets a third bunny.
Overall, I think this is a cute story. However, I feel like any adult that reads this is going to have to explain that Max’s behavior is unacceptable. In general, I do not like books to come with stipulations.
Rating: 3 Plot Monster Jr. Spiders
