This rollicking picture book features one of the most beloved activities of older babies and toddlers: throwing, knocking, pushing, or pulling things onto the floor. “Drippy, slippy-slidey peaches. Peachy peaches, nice and fat. Peaches going . . . overboard! Peaches, peaches, splat! splat! splat!” Author Sarah Weeks captures the delight in a lilting text about a young bunny who can’t get enough of the game. Crinkly raisins go over the edge of the stroller tray, rubber ducky soars out of the tub, and stuffed animals fly from the crib. The clean-up may be exhausting for adults to contemplate, but young children will relish the fun. Bright, cheerful illustrations provide a lively accompaniment to this terrific read-aloud. Highly Commended, 2007 Charlotte Zolotow Award (Ages 1–3)

Sweet little baby bunny is as cute as can be, but turn your back for just one minute and--uh-oh, he's throwing everything overboard! The peachy peaches are going overboard! Squeaky, leaky rubber ducky? He's overboard! And so are the jammies and the diapers and everything else within reach. And when it's finally time to settle down for bedtime, the baby bunny has one last surprise!
Sarah Weeks's charming rhythmic text and Sam Williams's sweet appealing illustrations have come together in a book that mischievous toddlers will want to read again and again.
