A picture book about a child’s attachment to a blanket is hardly a new idea. But Tatyana Feeney gives it fresh treatment here. Mommy thinks Blue Blanket is dirty. Small Bunny knows Blue Blanket is perfect. But he can’t stop her from putting Blue Blanket in the washing machine. Mommy assures him it will only take a minute. “It actually took 107. And Small Bunny watched Blue Blanket for every single one.” Feeney’s spare, sweetly droll narrative is matched with childlike illustrations full of wit and charm (including the page documenting those 107 minutes—the changing positions of Small Bunny’s ears speak volumes). “Good as new!” says Mommy. (“He did not like new.”) But it doesn’t take too long before Small Bunny has Blue Blanket perfect once again. (Ages 2–5)
