Trixie is very excited. This is the day that she is bringing Knuffle Bunny to school with her. But Trixie is in for a surprise when she finds out that another classmate has a knuffle bunny JUST LIKE HERS! All day, the girls squabble, and eventually both bunnies get taken away. At the end of the day, they get them back and go home– until at 2:30 in the morning, Trixie realizes that the knuffle bunny she has isn’t hers. The OTHER GIRL has it and SHE NEEDS IT BACK! After a middle-of-the-night trade-off, the girls realize that they have more in common than they thought, and they become friends.
This book could be used to identify conflict and resolution as well as setting (the photos are brilliant), characterization, and plot.
Awards: This is the sequel to the Caldecott-Honor-winning Knuffle Bunny.
