Betty Bunny Loves Chocolate Cake PDF Print E-mail

What You Need to Know:
Betty Bunny Loves Chocolate Cake is a clever, laugh out loud story.
• Author Michael Kaplan has captured the humor that is parenting and family life.
• Stephane Jorisch's illustrations are a perfect pairing for this humorous story, making it even funnier!
Sweet Book Summary:
Betty Bunny is a "handful". Betty isn't quite sure what that means, but given her mom calls her that so often, it must be good. Betty is the youngest of four in your typical, modern family. One night, her mother asks if she would like to try a piece of chocolate cake. Betty has never tried chocolate cake, and she is quite sure she won't like it. But after one bite, Betty is smitten and declares, "I want to marry chocolate cake!" Betty is one directed little bunny, and the rest of the story is about Betty's hilarious attempts to have chocolate cake ALL THE TIME. The portrait Kaplan paints of this family is just hilarious as they try to teach Betty about patience and why immediate gratification isn't always possible. What youngster hasn't struggled with that?

Young children will relate to Betty's struggles to be good and older children will laugh at the funny family dynamics. Kaplan's depiction of siblings are spot-on. Adults will laugh right along with the kids on this one. On the last page I laughed out loud - literally. You will have to read this terrific book to find out why!
