In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

Styling Librarian: ReReading Fun 4/6/12 Bunnicula

Continuing the challenge from:  Jen Vincent @ TeachMentorTexts:  I’ve really enjoyed reading Bunnicula by James Howe with my son. We’ve listened to it in the car and laughed through some pieces, clarified what words meant in others, and discussed vampires and doing what is right instead of proving you’re right. I read the first three books when I was a child and I barely remember them, but now I just want to hug words that popped out at me throughout my drives. The language is fabulous and the story is quite a special one.

I thought it might be neat to find out where else people celebrate Bunnicula- found out there was a play:

And a cool WebQuest:

Picture book revisit:

Just reread this treasure:

The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog! by Mo Willems. Of course it was hilarious and fun to read again with my son. The thing that made me laugh the hardest is that he turned to the end papers and was frustrated that there wasn’t a pigeon peeking out of one of the images. (–He always looks for the pigeon when we read Elephant and Piggie.) After I pointed out that the pigeon is featured throughout the book, things were a little clearer.

I always enjoy going to Mo Willem’s webpage. My students do as well. Here is his page on The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog- I recommend the video as well!

I love revisiting past treasures. My hope is to sneak in The Trumpet of the Swan by E.B. White. My FAVORTE book when I was a child- even rewrote the ending, added another story to accompany the first, etc. I thoroughly invested in the characters… We did begin listening to Howliday Inn by James Howe which is terrific and also are still reading The Borrowers by Mary Norton- it has been bumped by picture books and Frankie Pickle by Eric Wight books numerous times now, so those two re-reads take precedence.

I’ll see what I achieve in this challenge, from Jen Vincent’s webpage:

My progress- 2 Novels, 3 picture books, 2 blog posts… Enjoying the challenge and 3 Saturdays to go! My first post:

  1. I’m rereading Charlotte’s Web with Colby right now and I know I read Stuart Little but I don’t think I ever read Trumpet of the Swan. I’ll have to add it to my TBR because now I’m curious. It has been fun to reread favorites with my kiddos. I don’t get tired of rereading my favorite picture books…although some of the lengthy ones my kids pick on their own can get old sometimes. I think I read the Borrowers as a kiddo but need to reread that, too. Thanks for joining in on the rereading fun!

      I’ve been hesitant to reread Trumpet of the Swan for a long time because I feared that I changed it a little too much in my mind and it might not meet my expectations. Only has happened a few times when I reread a book from my childhood, shall see! I agree, I love rereading favorite picture books, especially with students in the library- have books that I consistently share yearly.🙂

    There is also a new musical version of Bunnicula debuting Off- Broadway in NYC this February. Visit us at or for more info check out Don’t let the name fool you, the show is certainly not ONLY for kids! It is a great time for adults who love the books too! As a 20 something myself who grew up reading the books I think anyone who loves the wit and style of the books will love the show just as much!
