BURRITO HAS A BUTTERBODY

BURRITO HAS A BUTTERBODY

ABOUT THE BOOK

Burrito is a very clumsy bunny. Everyone says he has a butterbody, tripping and slipping everywhere he goes. Will his day of accidents ever come to an end?

SNAPSHOT REVIEW

  • A picture book with a simple life lesson for children and parents – that it is okay to fall occasionally as long as you learn to pick yourself up and move on.
  • The book is beautifully produced, with glossy pages and cute illustrations. The choice of having a protagonist who is clumsy is also a good one, since young children are often prone to accidents.
  • The bunnies’ world has many interesting details for young readers to pick out, such as carrots at the breakfast table, the hammock beds, and the bunny school.
  • As a story, however, it is quite tame, and one is left unsure of the takeaway one is supposed to get from it. There are two images of a crying Burrito with a bleeding nose, which are rather gruesome and distressing.

CONCLUSION

An attractive picture book with an interesting central theme, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired.

“For a teacher or librarian faced with dozens of books to read, a good book review website is as essential as maps are for geographers.”

“Indian children’s books rarely get the kind of publicity they deserve in the popular or social media. Websites like Goodbooks plug the gap by not letting a single Indian children’s book of merit slip through the cracks. Most people would not even know about the books available in the market if not for a resource like this.”
