This Beginner Book starring P.J. Funnybunny is a bunny-rific tale of discovery!

Meet P. J. Funnybunny in this humorous and touching Beginner Book by Marilyn Sadler and Roger Bollen. It’s Not Easy Being a Bunny tells the “tail” of P.J. and his quest to become something other than what he is. Is it more fun to be a bear, a bird, or a pig? Read along as P.J. tries to determine who he is—and where he belongs.

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

"Sick of being a bunny, P. J. Funnybunny takes off to become a bear. Hibernation gets dull, so he tries being a bird. And so it goes, with beavers, pigs, possums, and skunks—till P. J. realizes that bunnyhood is for him. The short, repeating text is ideal for beginners and the bright, humorous cartoons will get immediate attention." —School Library Journal.

The bunny in this book decides that he doesn't like being a bunny and wants to be someone else. So he goes to visit others in their homes to see what it's like to be something other than a bunny. In the end he realizes that being a bunny is not so bad after all and decides to just be himself.

This was my favorite book as a kid. I'm now 28 years old. I currently have 19 month old twins that will fight over this book. It is their favorite! It's the only book we have to put away so that they will not fight. I'm going to buy 3 copies. 2 for my house, and 1 more for Grandma's. Obviously this book crosses generations! At 28, I not only love to read it to my kids, but I will curl up on the couch with my Mom and she will read it to me and the kids. :)

This simple story of a bunny trying to fit in is a great read along for preschoolers. It includes colorful easy to identify pictures of adorable animals which help children associate pictures and words with ease. This story also helps with the important lesson that sometimes home is right where you need to be.
