Review

Please Don’t Eat Me, written and illustrated by Liz Climo, explores the dynamic between a bunny and bear. The bunny, nervous that the bear will eat him, offers to do many different things so that he will not get eaten. Bear asks for many different things before he finally admits that he is lonely and just wants a friend to play with. The book ends with a humorous twist. The adorable, minimalist illustrations add to the value of the book by creating a playful tone and encouraging the reader to laugh at the bunny’s many attempts to not get eaten. This book is beneficial in understanding that sometimes people may seem scary because they are lonely and want a friend. The book also encourages young readers to be honest about how they feel, and tell someone when they would like a friend. Recommended Ashley Riddle, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University
