9780525469360: Alexander's Pretending Day

In this deceptively simple picture book for the very young, Alexander and his mother engage in a game of wild imagining. With all the comfort and charm of classics like The Runaway Bunny, Alexander's Pretending Day also offers playful reassurance. When Alexander pretends to be a scary monster, his mother says she's always wanted to have a monster for a friend. And when Alexander pretends to be a book, hidden on a shelf, his mother assures him that she'd find him right away under A and that he'd be a wonderful story. Families will love expanding on the text with fanciful "What if?" questions and answers of their own. Dan Andreasen's illustrations add just the right touch of whimsy to this lyrical text about limitless imagination.

About the Author:

Bunny Crumpacker has written four adult books, but this is her first book for children.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K–Reminiscent of Margaret Wise Brown's The Runaway Bunny (HarperCollins, 1942), this charming story features a questioning boy and his clever parent. Alexander is busy drawing pictures when he asks his mother what she would do if he turned into a mouse, a lion, a train, or even a monster. Each time, she answers lovingly and patiently, playing along with the game. When Alexander suggests that he will become a raging river, she says that she will find a bridge to walk across and look for a place to wiggle her toes in the water. Finally, the boy wonders what she would do if he turned into a library book and hid on the shelves, "How would you find me?" She answers, "I'd look you up under Alexander...and ...I'd sit down and read you from cover to cover." Andreasen's colorful, single- and double-page illustrations are filled with exuberance and gaiety. Alexander, a smiling boy with a cowlick and button nose, is whimsically depicted as each of the items he imagines, while his mother is always shown in a comfortingly realistic manner. A gentle tale of love and reassurance.–Lisa Gangemi Kropp, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY
