My preschooler loves her KNUFFLE BUNNY books. Kaia’s first favorite book was actually the first Knuffle Bunny book. We would read it over and over. Mo Willems has created an amazing series of books that every preschooler will love (and their Mommy’s and Daddy’s too). I first learned of Mo Willems when I was teaching preschool. I would read Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus to my class full of two and three year olds and they loved it. This book sets a welcome time for kids to get out all their “No’s” my whole class would yell out “NO!” at the appropriate times in the book and they loved it. Well I read this book to Kaia and now Mikey and they love saying their “No’s” too, Have you ever met a preschooler who doesn’t love saying “No”. Well lets get back to our KNUFFLE BUNNY FREE: AN UNEXPECTED DIVERSION book. The KNUFFLE BUNNY books are pretty sacred in our house. Kaia still loves reading the first and second book in this series so when I told her she was getting a new Knuffle Bunny Book she was ecstatic. As soon as we got the book we sat down and read it together. KNUFFLE BUNNY FREE: AN UNEXPECTED DIVERSION is just as good as its predecessors. I have to tell you I actually got teary eyed at the end of the book. It is a great story and for us (parents) the Knuffle Bunny series does comment on some big milestones in our childrens lives from the first Knuffle Bunny- our childs first words to the Second Knuffle Bunny Too- starting Preschool to the Third and Final KNUFFLE BUNNY FREE: AN UNEXPECTED DIVERSION growing up. I have been watching Kaia grow up with “Trixie” and her Knuffle Bunny and I have seen her speak her first words, start preschool, and soon I will see her take those steps to becoming a big girl just like Trixi in KNUFFLE BUNNY FREE: AN UNEXPECTED DIVERSION.These books have been so loved by my kids and all the children I have read these stories to.

Award-winning, bestselling author Mo Willems concludes one of the most beloved and celebrated picture book series of recent memory with the publication of KNUFFLE BUNNY FREE: AN UNEXPECTED DIVERSION, marking a triumphant end to the adventures of Trixie and her beloved stuffed bunny. Having won two prestigious Caldecott Honor Awards for the first two titles in the series (Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale and Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity) and selling more than 750,000 books, the Knuffle Bunny series has earned its place in the hallowed halls of children’s literature — and a special place in the hearts of kids and their parents.
The epic conclusion, KNUFFLE BUNNY FREE takes readers around the world while following Trixie and her family as they embark on a trans-Atlantic trip filled with many traveling “firsts” – first time waiting in line at airport security, first time riding a plane, first time in Holland and first time trying coffee at the café (NOT GOOD!). Trixie and her parent’s adventure to visit Oma and Opa is told with artwork (including a breathtaking foldout spread) and stunning photos alongside pitch-perfect text. An ode to the joys and sorrows of growing up, this last book is Mo’s ultimate love letter to his daughter, the real-life Trixie. Booklist’s starred review sums up this newest release perfectly: ““This denouement is enough to give you goose bumps, and young readers may be wiping the tears from their parents’ cheeks. Good night, Knuffle Bunny.”
