Ready Rabbit Gets Ready by Brenna Maloney

Published by Viking Books for Young Readers

Summary:  Ready Rabbit gives new meaning to the word procrastination, as his beleaguered mother tries to get him ready for school.  Breakfast is boring…but saving the life of an incapacitated whale isn’t!  Brushing teeth is important…but so is driving a stagecoach across the Wild West!  Ready has a fabulous imagination, and ultimately, he is ready for a new day.

Pros:  Kids and parents alike will relate to the struggle to get ready in the morning.  The illustrations are very unusual—Ready Rabbit is a cloth rabbit with a changing paper face.  Children will enjoy seeing the photographs of him in a variety of settings, and maybe trying to create something similar themselves.

Cons:  I found Ready Rabbit’s changing faces a little bit creepy.
