Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems

I've already mentioned how much we love Mo Willems, and we first discovered him via this very funny story. 

Trixie and Knuffle Bunny’s trip to the laundromat goes terribly wrong when Trixie realizes her bunny’s been left behind! Her attempts to alert her Dad all the way home are unsuccessful (even when she tries "going boneless"), until Mum points out that Knuffle Bunny is missing and the family hotfoot it back to the laundromat. Fortunately, KB is safe, if a little wet…

The book is filled with jokes for children and parents alike, and completemented by gorgeous illustrations, which - I hope you can see on the cover - are colour drawings on photographs of Park Slope, Brooklyn (where Willems lives) (Trixie, the toddler, is based on Willems’ own daughter). 

This is definitely one of our favourites and I can also highly recommend Knuffle Bunny Too and Knuffle Bunny Free.
