• This story would make a great read aloud.
• Newbie, the main character, is a terrific example of perseverance and determination.
Rescue Bunnies is a funny little story about a group of rescue bunnies that have a rookie in their midst. They call their rookie Newbie, and she is as sweet and guileless as they come. Newbie has one test left to pass before she becomes a bonafide member of the squad, the field test. When a distress call comes in from a giraffe, the chief decides this will be Newbie's final test.
Newbie ends up passing with flying colors, but not without some hilarious antics. The humor is dry and sophisticated, appealing to both the young reader and the adult reader. I especially like Cronin's use of funny and famous movie lines. "You had me at hello" and "You can't handle the truth" are personal favorites!
