T for longWith gorgeous colored ink drawings and funny spare text Peter McCarty tells a winning story of family imagination and lov Chloe is a bunny – the middle bunny – in a large family she has 20 older and younger siblings Chloe loves her family and especially loves when they have “family fun time” together When Dad brings home a new television however Chloe is upset She doesn’t think watching TV is fun at all She and her tiny little sister Bridget find a way to have fun anyway – using the box and the bubble wrap that once packaged their TV Soon the rest of the family has joined them and the TV – mostly – is forgottenPeter McCarty’s illustrations are amazing He uses textures patterns and shading to make Chloe and her family pop off the pages you may be familiar with his style from Caldecott Honor book Hondo Fabian I liked the values expressed – uality family time brothers and sisters who care about and for each other and who don’t bicker and fight all the time and TV is the devil or there are a million things you can do – that are fun – besides watching TV The bunnies might want to consider family planning – a 22 bun family is a lot of rabbits to support The story is so so but the artwork is lovely and features bunnies – an added bonus in my opinion
